Whether you’re a high school student, a returning student or just looking to take a class on the side, following these steps will make your admissions experience easy!
To get started you'll need:
- Your Social Security number.
- An email address that we can use to contact you.
- Name and address of the high school you have attended.
- Name and address of any colleges you have attended.
Start Your Application
24 hours after completing the application for admission you can activate your student account. You will need your student ID number. This is found in your acceptance letter. Find it under “Setup your User Profile.”
Setting up your account gives you access to student self-service (where you can view your personal information, grades, financial aid, and to-do list), Blackboard (online class platform) and your KCTCS student email (24 hours after enrolling for classes).
You can order your high school transcript at parchment.com or your GED transcripts at request.ged.ky.gov. Don’t forget to send transcripts for all previously attended non-KCTCS colleges, for example, any dual credit classes you may have taken in high school.
In order to accommodate prospective students who cannot take a placement test,
MCTC will use a cumulative high school GPA for placement through Summer 2022, as long as your high school graduation date is within the past five years. High school GPA placement is based on the unweighted cumulative GPA recorded at the end of the most recent term completed.
If you have not met the high school GPA requirement, or your high school graduation date is greater than five years ago, you may need to submit additional test scores.
- ACT and KYOTE scores can be submitted on a high school transcript.
- You can request ACT scores online.
- You can request SAT scores online.
- AP scores may be used for placement instead of ACT scores. You can request your AP scores online.
If a placement exam is needed, please contact the testing coordinator on your home campus:
First time students will meet with an Enrollment Services staff member for their initial advising appointment. Moving forward students are assigned a faculty advisor in their program of study.
