The health and well-being of our MTI community is a core priority
MTI College is committed to the health and well-being of our entire school community. Our plans are guided by information disseminated by local, state and federal health officials, with additional guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As the situation around COVID-19 tends to change rapidly, MTI is ready to adjust safety measures and operations as needed. In the event of major changes, MTI will communicate through e-mail or text to all students, faculty, and staff.
