graduated in 07 with a degree in Information networking technology. I've given up on trying to enter the workforce in this field. MATC doesnt provide any sort of assistance or guidance for job seekers. my training and degree were outdated before I even graduated.If you are considering going to MATC, go into nursing, you can have a modest career in medicine. there is no local demand for most of the programs though.

I enrolled in two summer classes as a test run for this college. The woman who is in charge of verifying attendance for veterans is clueless and had no idea there is more than one type of GI bill, furthermore she thinks that the GI bill is "free money" she can control. The teachers are rude and very liberal opinionated, they teach whatever nonsense they like and disregard the books. Classes are changed and cancelled without notice, the place looks like an inner city high school inside and out, and you have to make an appointment to speak with anyone about anything. The only plus was the academic counselor who advised me to go to K State instead.

Overall Rating:

Trying to pay your loans through them is impossible. Trying to CONTACT them is impossible. Learning in a class full of degenerative high schoolers that the teachers can't control is impossible. I'm extremely unhappy that I wasted TWO semesters here. Also know that when taking student loans out (if you drop out like I did from dealing with too much BS) they will make it so instead of only owing Navient, you'll owe them as well. They make themselves the middle man when there isn't cause for one!

Overall Rating:

A lot of miscommunication goes on here, so get whatever they're telling you in writing. The instructors are very unforgiving of absences even in the case of family emergencies. They claim to be military friendly until the military does something that makes you miss class. Overall, my classmates were wonderful, but I ended up not finishing my program because I had personal issues come up and was given no leeway, while thousands of miles from family, with a young infant.
