75 Credits Tuition-Free. Zero Excuses Not to Finish Your Degree
The MATC Promise provides eligible adults up to 75 credits of free tuition – after other scholarships and grants are applied – to complete an in-demand associate degree or technical diploma. So, if you’ve been putting off going back to college, now’s the time to put your degree back on track
Go Back to a School That's Got Your Back
Maybe you didn’t finish college last time. But maybe your college didn’t give you the support you needed. The MATC Promise provides you with the help — advisors, career counselors, and more — to stay on track to graduate and connect to a career.
Bounce Back with Flexible Class Options and Start Dates
Take classes online, on-campus or a hybrid of both. Take classes at night, on weekends, or on your lunch break. You can even start your courses in June, August, September, or October. MATC is the school for people with busy lives who need flexible options with 12- and 8-week courses available.
