How do I apply to attend MTC for Career Dual Enrollment?

All students interested in attending a Career Certificate Dual Enrollment Program must apply to Marchman Technical College utilizing the Pasco Pathways School Choice Application. Student applications will be reviewed to ensure the applicant meets the eligibility criteria of being on track for graduation with a 2.0 GPA. Preferences established in the Controlled Open Enrollment Plan will be followed when the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of seats open. Students residing in the district will be given preference followed by those outside the district. Applicants are randomized and seats are filled by the number of open opportunities designated during the seat-setting process. Students not placed during the lottery process will be placed on a randomized waitlist. Transportation is not provided.


Sign up to receive more info via email and get a friendly reminder once the Pasco Pathways school choice application window opens later this school year.
