Your future, your choice - take advantage of Advanced Standing credits through your high school!
Advanced standing recognizes the skills students attain in certain high school courses by allowing them to earn college credit. When students enroll at MSTC, credit for those high school courses in which they earned advanced standing will be applied toward their technical college degree or diploma. Students receive these credits at no cost, making their college education more affordable.
