Veterans Services

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.

How to apply as a Veteran:

Located in H.2300, this room is a location for veteran students to relax, socialize and do homework. Staffed by student veterans, you will find peer information and support as well as computer labs available for your use. This is also a meeting room for the MCTC Chapter of the Student Veterans of America.
