Applicants for technical programs must attend one of the departmental orientations which are scheduled on a weekly basis. Individual counselor interviews are scheduled following each orientation program to discuss test results, program placement, special needs, and registration procedures. Referrals to the Applied Academics for Adult Education (AAAE) Center are made if minimum basic skill levels have not been achieved. Registration for postsecondary students is held three times annually (August, January, and June).
Applicants must complete an Application for Technical Center Enrollment through their high school guidance counselor. The completed application is forwarded to McFatter Technical College along with a copy of the student's transcript. Students are accepted on a space available basis. All high school applicants are scheduled for a counselor interview with their parents.
Orientation is scheduled with individual program counselors. Each session is limited. Orientation provides information pertaining to curricula, costs, entry requirements, support services, financial aid, and general institutional policies.
