Registration and Course Payment
- Your first step should be to review the available MTI dual credit classes and discuss with your high school counselor whether an MTI class and dual credit is a good option for you. Consider how the class fits your personal learning plan and your education plans after high school graduation.
- Once you decide to register; apply online using the MTI Dual Credit Application. To fill out, print and send in a paper application, use the Technical Institutes Dual Credit Enrollment Application form. The form must be signed and your enrollment approved by a school administrator. Class enrollments are limited for dual credit students and some classes reach capacity quickly, so early registration is encouraged.
- After your registration has been processed, you will be emailed a course schedule. The schedule indicates your registered class(es), and the invoice indicates the amount due for payment. You may drop a class within the first 10 class days of the MTI academic calendar without being charged and without receiving a grade. Contact Jenna Reis to drop a class.
- The cost of MTI dual credit classes is $48.33/credit hour (3-credit class cost is $144.99).
- Payment for your class is due to MTI within the first ten days of the semester. If your school district is paying for your class, provide a copy of the cost to your high school principal. Payment may be made by check (include your student ID# on check) or call the MTI business office 995-3022 to pay by credit/debit card.
Grades for dual-credit classes will be provided to the student’s local school district. Grades will also be recorded on an MTI Transcript. Official transcripts may be requested for a fee in-accordance with MTI procedures outlined at www.mitchelltech.edu/academics/registrar/transcript-request. Students may print an unofficial transcript from MyMTI.
Dual-credit classes taken from MTI may or may not be accepted for transfer credit at other colleges or universities. Most MTI classes are not accepted for transfer credit at SD Board of Regent Universities. Other colleges or technical institutes may accept MTI classes for transfer credit and if a student intends to apply for transfer credit at another institution, it is recommended they first check with the Registrar at that school to determine transferability prior to enrolling in the MTI class.
