A student may not be permitted to register if the student: (1) is on probation or warning who has not completed a recent Academic Restoration Plan, (2) is on academic suspension, or (3) has any indebtedness to MTI University.
A tracking sheet for each program will be completed for students to clarify the steps and courses needed to achieve a degree. This guide sheet incorporates the requirements found in this prospectus, and presents updated information as courses and requirements change after the prospectus is published. Curriculum guides may be obtained from advisors.
The curriculum guides are prepared for individual students and used to monitor a students progress toward any specific degree program. The guide sheets will be distributed each semester to provide students with a current statement of remaining requirements for graduation. They are powerful advising tools, which are also available on request as students wish to explore the requirements needed should they change degree objectives, or add or delete areas, majors, minors, or teacher education. The tracking sheets should be used in conjunction with information from the prospectus to insure that all graduation requirements are being met. It is the students responsibility to verify that all requirements have been completed.
