You’ve been admitted, what’s next?


After you’re accepted to a program, you’ll meet with the advisor to review program details, select courses, and get questions answered. You’ll be notified to schedule this.


You’ll need to open your myMPTC account and student email. Your school email is the primary way the college communicates. Check it frequently. Access to myMPTC enables you to register for classes, pay, view your grades and much more.


After meeting with your advisor, you’ll know which classes to take. You’ll also have a registration date.  Sign up for classes in-person or use self-service via myMPTC student.  Go to the My Academics tab – Registration – Add/Drop Classes.

Helpful links:


Review the payment options. Tuition/fees are due two weeks before each semester begins.  If you are planning to use Financial Aid, apply early! Missing payment or financial aid deadlines could cause you to be dropped from classes.


Buy your textbooks and supplies before classes start. You can visit the campus bookstore or use their online store. There are options that save you money, such as renting vs. buying, or buying used vs. new books. Note: Textbooks are not included in the class cost or your tuition bill.


Whether online or on-campus, attend and participate in your classes.  It’s key to your success.
