This catalog is in effect for new students entering MCTC in the 2023–2024 academic year and for any MCTC student returning in the 2023–2024 academic year whose catalog has expired. It was prepared from existing policies and information obtained from the appropriate MCTC officials and is the document of authority for all students. Please frequently refer to the MCTC Catalog so you are aware of the latest and most accurate information.

Catalog of Record

The catalog of record is the academic catalog that is in effect at the time a student declares a major. It identifies the graduation requirements students must meet to earn the degree. Once a student declares a major, the catalog of record remains the same, unless there is a break of enrollment of at least one year. The student must meet the graduation requirements in this catalog. Students can substitute courses no longer offered with the permission of their Academic Division Dean.
