RIGOROUS
MATC students in the Chem LabThe content of many MATC courses matches the curriculum at four-year colleges and universities. Partner colleges demand high standards as part of accepting credit transfers.

Courses will challenge you as you prepare to become a skilled employee or advance to university-level studies.

At the same time, MATC provides a nurturing environment for students to succeed academically.
 

SUPPORTIVE
MATC offers many services to help students at all learning levels reach their goals. These include academic support centers, computer labs, bilingual services and special needs support. Several programs support the retention of minority students. Our 18:1 student-faculty ratio allows instructors to give you personal attention. We are the college of choice for many first-generation college students.
