Financial Aid
Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at  We recommend completing the FAFSA at least eight weeks prior to your intended start date.  Additionally, complete the MTC Scholarship Application by May 1 for the following academic year.

Step 4 Basic Skills Assessment (COMPASS)

In order to assess your current skills in math, reading, writing, and technology, students are required to take a basic skills assessment (COMPASS) and Technology Skills Test (TST).  This free service assists you in selecting appropriate classes in math, English, and technology.  Contact the Office of Admission or Student Resource Center for testing dates and times.


If you are involved in one of our online degrees, you also have the option of testing at one of ACT's "Remote Testing Sites". The link will guide you to available locations throughout the state and country. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Mike Stuckey in the Student Resource Center.

If you are applying to the Business Management Online degree program and you cannot take the Technology Skills Test (TST) at MTC, an alternative option will be offered during the Business Management Online program interview.

*If you have taken the ACT or have previously earned certain college credits, you may be exempt from taking the COMPASS and/or TST.
Step 5

Advising and Class Registration
The final step in the enrollment process is to meet with your assigned Academic Advisor and register for classes.  Ask your admission counselor about our advising options and what is best for you!
