What's the difference between academic programs and training programs?
Only academic programs provide college credit, transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and are eligible for federal financial aid (FAFSA). Training programs can be completed in a matter of weeks or months. These are not eligible for federal financial aid, but they may qualify for other scholarships and grant funds.


MTC offers online courses in three formats.

Online courses:delivered via the internet and do not have a set daily class schedule. However, you will likely have regular deadlines you must meet each week during the semester.

Virtual courses:delivered online, through free, downloadable web conferencing software and allow you to see, hear, and speak with your instructors in real-time. These courses meet at set times during the week, similar to a traditional on-campus class.

Hybrid courses:feature both on-campus and online learning. Some learning activities will take place online, but classes will meet on-campus on regularly scheduled days and times as well.

Required Online Orientation Course (Virtual Backpack)

Before registering for an online academic class for the first time, you will need to complete the short, free, and fast Virtual Backpack course. It is not required for virtual or hybrid courses, but we strongly recommend you complete it before registering for those courses too. This short online course will help introduce you to the structure of online courses and give you some of the technical knowledge you will need to succeed in online classes. Once you have been assigned a D2L account, you will automatically be enrolled in the Virtual Backpack course and can access it bylogging into D2L.

Are you a prospective MTC student who is interested in taking online courses? Use the following credentials to demo the Virtual Backpack. Keep in mind that if you enroll at MTC at a later date you will need to complete the Virtual Backpack under your own account prior to enrolling in online courses.

What to Know Before You Register

Every online and hybrid course at Midlands Technical College has a Preregistration Information Page linked on the Class Search Registration page. This page includes information about each course such as technical requirements, orientation requirements, on-campus/off-campus requirements, etc.

There are many benefits to taking online and hybrid courses, including fewer trips to campus, flexible scheduling, and a relaxed learning environment. However, keep in mind that online and hybrid courses demand that you be self-motivated and proactive. Also, online delivery does not mean the workload is less than a face-to-face course nor does it mean that there are no due dates or attendance requirements. There will be an assignment schedule to follow and instructors will verify attendance through the assigned online activities.
