Dear MTC students,
Your success is our priority, and we will do everything in our power to help you achieve your goals. Our faculty and staff are hard at work preparing for classes to resume Monday. This alternative instruction delivery will continue through the remainder of the spring semester.
We know there might be some anxiety around this transition. That’s why today, next week, and in the weeks to come, we will share resources and information that can help in your success. You have already invested half a semester of time, effort, and work into your courses, so you owe it to yourself to finish – and we are committed to helping you finish.
Here are some essential resources that can help you adjust.

As part of Midlands Technical College’s response to COVID-19, we also are providing all students access to Tutor.com. You can meet with a tutor 24 hours a day, seven days a week anytime this semester. You can also have your papers reviewed and returned to you within 12 hours. To access Tutor.com in D2L, simply click on the "College Links" menu from any of your courses, select Tutor.com, and then follow the on-screen directions from there.
access MTC library resources online
and through their D2L account. While the library’s physical locations on campus are closed for checking out for books, DVDs, laptops, etc., please remember that 90% of library resources are available online 24/7. There will be no late fees during this time.
We understand that some students have limited access to the internet from home. Unfortunately, there is no single solution for everyone. Here is what we know now.
Many cell phone providers have signed the “
Keep Americans Connected
” pledge and are reducing costs and waiving certain fees for people who want to upgrade to data plans that allow phones to create personal hotspots.
