Midlands Technical College Reviews

Other posters have stated that MTC is very friendly for adult learners, who work. I would DISAGREE! If you need any tutoring services or need to go to the library forget it. The campus hours are until 5pm on most days, 5:30 at the latest. I have to take time off from work anytime I need to handle anything administrative. You can take a lot of general education classes at night, but once you hit a certain point in your program most of the classes are only offered during the daytime. Other than that, MTC is a great community college.
Review Your College
I have been a student at Midlands Tech for 3 semesters and overall I do believe it's a good stepping stone for students to get started in college but the process to get started with Midlands Tech has always been a hassle. The financial department at Midlands Tech is incredibly unorganized when it comes to scholarships, FASFA, or payments. Making advisement appointments are not always easy to make because the timeframes are not always flexible with students who have jobs. The bright side of Midlands Tech is some of the professors. I got lucky to have some of the best ones at this college because they have really cared about my success.
I had a few professors that I truly enjoyed. Unfortunately, the rest of the staff there is uninterested in helping you become a successful student. They are so saturated with students and understaffed as a whole, they do not have to time to dedicate to you as an individual student. There is little personalization. You can tell that they don't treat their employees very well either. They are so unhappy with their jobs, that it reflects in the effort they put forth helping you down your path to graduation. I will never go back.
