We continue to work to limit the number of individuals on campus to prioritize health and safety, and will ask students to continue working with staff remotely when possible. We will suggest that students visit the Contact Us page to contact teams remotely. The information about in-person services will be provided directly to students as well. 

Future students who want to apply to MATC should start at the Admissions Centers. Current students who want to register for class or have other questions should start at the Pathway offices. So that you are prepared to help students, see details below.
