Integration Between MATC Certificates and Associate Degree Program

All IT Computer Support Specialist Program offerings are integrated as part of MATC’s IT Computer Support Specialist Pathways , designed to help students choose between the different educational educational credential available for IT Computer Support Specialist Program. Pathway allows students to start small and get a certificate in one semester. After getting the certificate students can either start looking for a job or continue their studies or take a break in education and return back to the studies later (due to change family circumstances).

We have designed IT Computer Support Pathway in such way that any technical course students take counts toward either Certificate, Technical Diploma or Associate Degree Educational credentials. Most of the courses are also interchangeable with other MATC programs and also can be transferred toward 4 year degrees (How MATC IT Support Program allows you to transfer to 4 year program).

Pathways are also helpful for students that might have different interests and goals with IT Support technologies, since it offers transfer opportunities to other IT Programs inside or outside of MATC. Curriculum is offered in different methods for flexibility of scheduling. Financial Aid is available to qualified candidates.
