Welcome from the President
Marion Technical College is an active and engaged part of the Marion community - and it has been for more than 40 years. This is an exciting time to be at MTC!
More than 40,000 students have entered MTC’s doors. At least 7,500 graduates are in the community, advancing their careers, putting their skills, ideas, and know-how to work. From nurses to web designers to police officers, MTC graduates are employed. On the most recent graduate survey, 97% were working the year after graduation and 94% stayed in the area.
About 2,500 students are served each year by MTC. These include high school students earning college credit through the College Credit Plus (formerly Post-Secondary Enrollment Option, or PSEO program); working adults looking to advance their careers; and those who are looking to enter a new field. Students of all ages enjoy the small class sizes, personal attention from their instructors, and opportunities to gain new knowledge and skills to make a better future for themselves and their families.
MTC offers more than 60 programs, majors, degrees and certifications. If you’re looking at getting a certificate or associate’s degree, working in business, engineering, health, public service, information technology, MTC is a wonderful choice. This local institution offers hands-on learning as well as internships and co-ops. Tuition is 57% less than many four year college main campuses.
