The College programs are offered with equal opportunity for all qualified persons without regard to race, political belief or affiliation, color, age, national origin, sex or handicap that would not preclude employment within their selected program area. This policy applies to Admissions, Advising, Training, Placement or to any other activity of the school. Applicants for admission are considered individually and there are no charges for this assessment.

The programs offered by the College are open to all men and women that are beyond the age of compulsory school attendance; supply a diploma certifying completion of a high school education or a valid certificate attesting to the completion of comparable secondary education. Prospective enrollees complete a questionaire, discuss educational goals, and pass the Wonderlic Scholastic Level Examination. The admissions representaitve will discuss the minimum federal standards based on each program offered by the college before sitting for the exam. This examination measures the ability-to-benefit from the education and training offered for enrollees with a secondary education. Inclusive are enrollees without a high school diploma or its equivalent not using Title IV Federal funding.

As of July 1, 2012, prospective enrollees not having a high school diploma or GED cannot use Title IV funding as mandated by the Secretary of Education. Our staff can advise as to what options or where prospective students can achieve or pursue their high school diploma or General Education Diploma (GED) certification. If you passed an Ability to Benefit Test approved by the Department of Education and received Title IV funding previous to July 1, 2012, you are still eligible. Proper transcripts showing passage is required before enrollment.

The representatives of the school are well informed about job requirements in the community enabling them to recommend training needed for specific employment objectives. A tour of the College is conducted prior to enrollment.

Transcripts are required to verify previous education. Upon starting classes the student will complete a "request for transcript" form to be sent to all secondary or postsecondary institutions attended in the past.


The College will accept transfer credits earned in similar program courses taken at an accredited institution recognized by the Secretary of Education if the student has earned a grade point average of 2.0 or above. An official transcript must be on file in order for transfer credits to be approved. The student cannot receive transfer credits and also receive credit for the same course taken at MTI. The College reserves the right to accept or reject credit units earned at other institutions.

Credit can also be given through challenge examination provided the subject is similar in content to courses within the student's selected program. Permission to take this special examination is given only after the student has made a formal request approved by the Director and/or Associate Director and the instructor. A student must score 80% or above in order to receive credit. No more than twenty-five percent (25%) of a program's credit units can be earned by making a challenge of the program subjects.

The result of transfer credit or credit earned by challenge examination will be recorded and the length of the program can be shortened proportionately along with the student being appraised of the outcome. For students receiving educational benefits, the Department of Veteran Affairs shall also be notified of a change in program length.
