Military & Veteran Students

Thank you to all veterans and active duty military personnel for your service to our country! We are here to help you transition from soldier to student.

“I have used the Veteran Services at MTC and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The process was not hard.” – Sarah Rick, Radiography Student

Come network with other military members and veterans on the first Thursday of each month from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Alber Student Center, room 111B. Bring your lunch, hang out, study, and meet new people. (Excludes holidays or when campus is closed.)

How to Apply

As a veteran or active duty student, we have staff that will help you enroll at MTC. Contact the Office of Admission at 740-389-4636 or enroll@mtc.edu.

Education Benefits

We have a VA Certifying Official who will help you with your education benefits. Contact Diane Mayne at 740-389-4636 ext. 4118 or mayned@mtc.edu. Learn more about using your veteran’s benefits.

“I am using my post 9-11 G.I. Bill® and the process was actually pretty easy. Diane in the financial aid office is very knowledgeable and will do anything to help you. The only advice that I would give is don’t forget to do the FAFSA and see about getting grants. It will help you in the long run.” – Christine Stoddard

Transfer Credit

Your military training, experience, and coursework will count for credit at MTC. We use the American Council on Education guide to translate military education into credit that will be applied toward your major or general education requirements, when possible. Contact Bob Chidester at 740-389-4636 ext. 322 or chidesterr@mtc.edu.

Career Planning

We can help you with career counseling, resume development, interviewing skills, and job searching strategies. Contact Shannon Niedzwicki at 740-389-4636 ext. 317 or niedzwickis@mtc.edu to start building your career strategy.

Counseling

We employ a licensed professional clinical counselor to help students address personal challenges and barriers to academic success. Consultations with the counselor are confidential and free to MTC students. For more information, visit the Student Resource Center or contact Mike Stuckey at 740-389-4636 ext. 271.

Disability Services

We are committed to serving students with disabilities equally. Our student resource center (SRC) houses the Office of Disabilities and will advocate on behalf of students for reasonable accommodations for physical, mental, learning, and/or emotional disabilities.

We strongly encourage veteran or active duty students with a disability to meet with the SRC director during the admissions process. Contact Mike Stuckey at 740-389-4636 ext. 271 or stuckeym@mtc.edu.
