Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) summer schedule will include several 100% tuition-free options to help students JumpStart their college career. 

The summer JumpStart program is offered to any high school student graduating as part of the class of 2021 as well as anyone interested in registering as a first-time college student for the fall of 2021. 

Additionally, students who may have attended college in the past that did not complete their degree but left their college in good standing are also encouraged to apply. 

JumpStart class offerings are designed to provide a solid foundation for new college students by teaching technical and life skills that will be helpful in future classes as well as their day to day lives.  

“We had great success with the JumpStart program last Summer so we are excited to bring it back,” says MCTC Chief Financial Officer, Barb Campbell. “The JumpStart course offerings are perfect for students looking to take their first steps towards a high-wage, high-demand career as well as those looking to start their college journey with MCTC and plan to transfer to a four-year institution after completing their Associate's Degree.” 

MCTC JumpStart Course Options: 

CIT 105 - Introduction to Computers or OST 105 - Introduction to Information Systems
Both courses are introductory level and prepare students with basic computer skills and techniques that can be used daily at school, home and work.  

FYE 100 - First Year Experience
The First Year Experience course will prepare students for success as a college student and connect them to programs, services and people here to help them accomplish their goals. 

The eight-week classes are offered exclusively online and will begin in conjunction with the MCTC’s first summer session on June 7 and will complete August 1.  

Space is limited, students should apply as soon as possible to secure a spot in one of the sections being offered for this program.
