MTCC will open at 10 am on Friday, January 21. Temperatures are not expected to be above freezing all day on Friday. With the threat of black ice and continued poor road conditions, this delayed opening will allow for sound decision-making about safe travel to campus during full daylight hours. Please pay close attention, and only travel if it is safe. Always communicate with your supervisor or instructor if you have concerns. Students: Continue to check your MTCC email and Open LMS for updates from your instructors for make-up options for this week. Instructors may offer alternate class meeting options (e.g. virtual or recording lessons) and/or alternate assignments. For high school students, we understand some class meetings may have overlapped with college class meetings due to the delayed opening. In cases like these, always communicate directly with your instructor.

McDowell Tech will offer an associate degree nursing (ADN) program beginning the Fall 2022 semester. The new degree was approved by the North Carolina State Board of Nursing (NCBON) during its meeting on January 13th. The ADN program prepares students to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®) and will better serve McDowell County’s healthcare needs and the needs of local residents. ADN is a two-year program and completion allows students to sit for the NCLEX exam. Students who receive a passing score on the exam are eligible to apply for licensure as a registered nurse in the state of North Carolina.
In a rare instance of unity, meteorologists seem to concur that Snowmageddon is shaping up for this weekend in McDowell County. Be sure to follow us now on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for real-time updates on weather-related closings and delays. Or, sign up online for MTCC text messages to immediately be notified of delays and cancellations. (Click on the headline above to sign up!). Alternatively, you may check out the news section on our website or follow the scroll on WLOS or other local television stations for similar weather-related information. Assuming the meteorologists are right, you will want to have your phones and flashlights charged, water bottles filled, and of course, have plenty of milk and bread available for protein-rich milk sandwiches.
I hope everyone is having a great first day of Spring 2022! As we start a new semester, we also have another "beginning" today to announce. Check out McDowell Tech on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to see the announcement about the college's new nickname. Or, just use the first video link to watch the reveal video.
