First Time Freshman | MCTC

First Time Freshman

LET’S GET THIS JOURNEY STARTED

New to college? Here’s how to apply to MCTC and start building a better tomorrow—right here in your own backyard.

Apply as a freshman if you’ve never taken a college class or if you took dual-credit, SEEK, or dual-enrolled classes in high school. If you’ve taken college classes, apply as a transfer student.

How to Apply 

Applying to MCTC is easy, and we’ll be with you at every step of the way. Just follow these four steps:

  1. Submit the Application for Admission. It’s free, and it only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
     
  2. Send us your final high school or GED transcript. You can order your high school transcript at parchment.com or your GED transcripts at request.ged.ky.gov.
     
  3. Submit your ACT or SAT scores or the results of placement testing. *Starting Summer 2020 MCTC is permitted to place students in coursework based on their official high school GPA. MCTC will still accept and enter test scores from high school transcripts. Students may choose to take our free placement exams on campus if desired, please call to schedule. If you earned a GED and chose not to take the MCTC placement exams our advising staff will automatically place you in co-requisite general education classes.*
     
     
  4. Explore financial aid. Our generous scholarships, grants and loans make a great education even more affordable. Here’s how. 
     

And that’s it! You’re on your way to the future of your dreams.

If you have questions along the way, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to helping you reach your goals!
