Martin Methodist College (MMC) has instituted a test-optional admissions process in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Tyler Cox, Vice President of Enrollment, high school seniors who have not taken their ACT or SATs are still eligible for admissions to MMC, even if they lack scores for this current application cycle for fall enrollment.
Cox added the recruitment process may look a little different this summer, MMC is open will host campus tours for students and their families.
Of interest to many families, financial aid is still available. And the new graduate program in Criminal Justice is accepting applications currently. In many ways, it's business as usual," Cox said.
According to Dr. Judy Cheatham, Provost, classes, and classroom instruction have also been modified based on health and safety recommendations. Students will have regular face-to-face instruction, but they also may have some classes taught in a hybrid manner or on-line.
Through months of planning as well as additional training and new technology, MMC can offer several different options for students in classes in the fall.
Classrooms have had extra chairs and desks removed, physical distancing and polycarbonate barriers have been implemented, even restrooms have been modified.
However, students will find that tutoring, advising, library services, the MMC clinic, campus life will all be available.
MMC will welcome the Class of 2024 at the 151st opening of the school year, September 10th.
