• Natural Resources Technology (NRT) - How to Get Started


  • Registering for NRT program classes for Fall 2019

    Natural Resources Technology is a limited entry program that begins in the fall term only. The program accepts 40 new students each year. Prospective students are admitted on a space available basis after academic requirements have been met. Registration for Fall term begins in May. Once spots are filled, students will be placed on a waitlist.

    Follow this simple 3-step process to reserve your spot in the program.

    1. Submit an MHCC general admission application at https://my.mhcc.edu/ics/Admissions. New students and those returning after four terms or more will need to submit this form.
    2. Meet the minimum academic requirements in reading, writing and mathematics, which can be satisfied by placement into RD115, WR115/WR101 and MTH060/MTH058 or by completing RD090, WR090 and MTH020 (Non-MHCC students need to submit official transcript(s) and request a transcript evaluation. Evaluations can take up to six weeks, please plan ahead).

      For information about determining course placement, visit Testing Services or call 503-491-7591.
    3. Complete the NRT Program Interest Form

      The first 40 students will be added to our contact list and emailed in April to receive follow up information for Natural Resources Technology course registration. Information will also be provided about a June mandatory orientation. Submissions received after April will be sent information regarding their next step.
