Veterans Admission Process
MCTC has a long, proud history of veteran students attending our college. Veterans, and their dependents using veterans education funding, follow the same admissions process as all students in addition to applying for veterans funding. We have staff available to assist you in the enrollment process and to provide guidance in the veterans benefit application process.
