Educational Programs

Start College Early

Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) helps high school students prepare for college and explore careers through a variety of programs.

All are offered at no cost to the student, and include:

Concurrent Enrollment (CollegeNOW)

These are MCTC classes taught at the high school by high school instructors approved by the College to teach its courses.

Destination: Diploma to Degree (D3)

This program is for students in alternative learning centers. Students are allowed to come to MCTC to take courses if they don’t meet normal PSEO requirements, need to take developmental courses or would like to attend in the summer.


These courses are taught at MCTC. Students may register for any courses for which they meet program/course requirements.

Career and Technical Courses

MCTC has articulated credit agreements with high schools for courses in which students who meet the conditions of the agreement may earn credit for their high school studies in career and technical areas.

NOTE: If you are a current high school senior looking for information on applying & attending MCTC AFTER you graduate, please visit our Admissions Page.
