5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I love it! I'm not looking for job prospects (already working in the field), just need the degree and I get a certificate along the way.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost of everything is broken down to portray a typical student's expense.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I got to talk one on one with my counselor about my transfer credits.

She helped me throughout the process. Thanks!

4 College Senior

Online Courses: It's not for everyone, but if you have time management skills, it's great

3 College Senior

Student Body: I'm not a part of clubs, so wrong critic to ask.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The walk-in hours are perfect.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: MCTC has multiple programs in one degree.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I currently attend Minneapolis Community and Technical College, and I what I love most is the reliability of administration.

Everyone from the staff in student services to the teachers (at least from the IT dept.) will always offer assistance when you need it. I can honestly say even though I never saw myself attending a small campus, I love the community.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most of the time it is pretty easy to figure out a schedule that will work for my family. If you do not sign up for you classes right away, this does become an issue.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I really have not had the time to get more involved in any of these because I am such a busy parent. If I am able to take classes, my classes are the only priority.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online courses are a little to impersonal for me. I like to learn in the classroom and it is hard when you are online whenever you feel like you would like to be. I feel that you lose a lot of valuable feed back from your peers as well as your professor. I also feel that it is beneficial for those that do not have time for a traditional style classroom and are able to build around their own schedules. It does not work for me because you must be completely disciplined in order to make sure you are completing your assignments in a timely manner.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: MCTC has a very wonderful career center. All staff are very helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: MCTC is a very wonderful school. Tuition is well worth the education with this school. The teacher's all seem so very passionate about teaching. The financial aid office is very wonderful with explaining any and all questions you may have. I suggest this school to all.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I had great teachers, but here at the school you need to make sure you study very well because you will need it when it comes to finals and special projects.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is very good here at $155.85 per credit better than most school in Minnesota.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My education at MCTC is very cheap and I get a lot of financial aid which makes it even cheaper. I am learning a lot for the amount that I am paying. I enjoy being surrounded by a very diverse group of people. I don't exactly regret starting school here. I know that going to any college is an impossible kind of dream for some people and MCTC can help them achieve that dream. But I believe that I am capable of attending school at a place that is more rigorous and challenging for me. A school that fosters the development of my life towards the direction of achieving my goals.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The library is okay. There aren't many books but there are good places to study and many reference sources. Weight room is small but you can get a good workout in. Gym size is pretty basic. Open gyms everyday. There are no sports teams. Student center is a fun space. Many places to study. You can find the student senate offices and talk to the senators. Also voice your concerns to the student president or sit in senate meetings. Many rooms to reserve for club meetings or study groups. Fine Art studios aren't very impressive: fairly small. No ventilation means no oil painting. Student services are very good. They will help you with anything. They reviewed my resume and gave me advise on how to make it better.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Wi-fi speed is so-so. It can be extremely slow sometimes and normal other times. Also it probably depends on what building your in. There aren't very many computer labs. The internet on the schools computers usually isn't very slow. Printing is very cool. On your student ID card you get $100 for printing. It comes from your tuition. Each black-and-white print is $0.10 and each color is $0.25. You can get 1000 prints in black-and-white or 400 prints in color in one whole semester. And then it renews the next semester.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The academic advisors are very helpful. Most of MCTC's classes are transferrable to almost all Minnesota colleges. They will also transfer to other colleges if you meet with your advisor early and plan your years as an MCTC student and contact the school that you wish to transfer to. The advisors are very helpful with transfer processes.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility really depends on what teacher you have. But one thing that I have learned is that if you need help with anything, just ask anyone. Many of the teachers are willing to help with just about anything school related, especially passing a class. I had a teacher who even told us to let him know if we are having trouble financially and he will find a way to help us out. Also, the academic advisors are very nice. I went for transfer counseling and they were very helpful. Since it's a community college the faculty understand that students may have children or financial issues, and that most of them want to transfer to another school at some point.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Since MCTC is in the heart of Minneapolis you will probably find students who are fairly hippie/grunge/punk who don't believe in the system of education where you have to pay thousands of dollars just to get a job. You will also find many people who come from low income families (typical of community college) but who are actually trying to do something with their lives. And students like me who are taking generals to transfer to a four-year college. Also, there are a lot of older people. Literally people of any age go to MCTC. Even your grandma. If you hang out in the right places you will find some pretty cool kids doing things like breakdancing, singing, playing the guitar, playing pokemon or dungeons and dragons, and making art.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: MCTC is very cheap. I don't know what classes are like at other colleges or universities but I am learning a lot here for the very little amount of many that I am paying. Also, I fill out the FAFSA each year and it saves me a TON of money on school. If all you are really looking for is a super basic education where you are actually learning a lot of stuff than it might be a good idea to go to a super cheap college like MCTC. If you want to be more specialized in anything other than Liberal Arts or general education than I suggest you go somewhere else. Also, I plan on transferring after I attain my Associate's. So, starting my first two years of college debt free is kind of fantastic.

3 College Junior

Facilities: MCTC has a very small weight room in the basement, but it's free. Also there are open gyms everyday. The student center isn't very big but it is a great space to study or have club meetings. And it's the newest building, so it looks very nice. There are lots of clubs but not even a hundred. In general the campus is very small. But it is a community college and it looks a lot better and more exciting than some other community colleges I've seen. The library is a comfortable space to study. It isn't very big and therefore doesn't carry a lot of books. But there are plenty of magazines, journals, and reference materials. We also have zines at our library and there is a meditation room there.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: MCTC has a fairly wide variety of classes considering its a community college. My major is Liberal Arts. I like that the instructors offer ideas on alternative learning. There is a large focus on alternative thinking and learning about different, underrepresented groups of people and ideas.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: MCTC seems pretty well known for their technical programs. They offer many certificates and diplomas in courses from Apparel Technologies and Culinary Arts to Athletic Instruction and Engineering. There are also Associates degrees of course. With those you can study majors like Liberal Arts or Visual Arts.
