Military Veterans

Military and Veterans

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. In fact, Marion Tech has been recognized as a public college in Ohio that is supportive and inclusive of military-connected students by The Collegiate Purple Star Award.

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 Your application fee will be waived.

  • In June of 2014, Governor Kasich signed House Bill 488, which includes providing priority registration for veterans and service members. At MTC, priority registration means veterans and service members can register beginning at 9 am on Tuesday before open registration begins. Once open registration begins, veterans and service members will compete with all other students for class spaces.

Veterans Benefits and Transition Act Policy

Marion Technical College, in accordance with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a Chapter 31 or Chapter 33 recipient borrow additional funds to cover the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of payment by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. This policy is limited to tuition funds paid by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

Class Schedules

Some online sections may require students to take the exams in person at a proctored site, either on campus or at another agreed-upon site convenient for the student and approved by the instructor. Please contact your advisor for more information.
