Enrollment is up over 17% over last fall at McDowell Technical Community College. The increase is primarily due to the college’s Learn and Grow Scholarship program, providing tuition-free college and other assistance to students.

McDowell Technical Community College is dedicated to supporting regional workforce development. The newly-branded McDowell Apprenticeship Pipeline, in cooperation with ApprenticeshipNC, is dedicated to ensuring the region has innovative, relevant, effective, and efficient workforce development system that develops adaptable, work ready, skilled talent to meet the current and future needs of workers and businesses to achieve and sustain economic prosperity.
Responding to local workforce development needs and the need for additional affordable housing in McDowell County and Western North Carolina, McDowell Technical Community College and Gateway Wellness Foundation have partnered to create a new Construction Trades Academy that will address both needs.
Effective Monday, November 15, 2021 MTCC's COVID-19 Protocol will be modified as follows: Masks or face coverings will continue to be required in all classrooms, labs, and in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain for the remainder of the semester. However, this version will now allow flexibility for masks to be optional in public settings where social distancing is possible. For example, if an employee visits the restroom or the copier, face coverings are now optional. Or, if a student is studying alone in the library, the face covering is now optional.
