To be granted admission to MFTI, a prospective student must interview with a MFTI admissions advisor and complete an application for admission. In addition, all other general and specific admission requirements must be met, including those regarding age, prior education and evaluation of proficiency in the college-level skills needed for coursework in the chosen field of study. Once MFTI accepts the application paperwork, applicants are provisionally admitted, pending satisfaction of all remaining admission conditions.

Each applicant for either an online or on campus education must be at least 18 years of age on the first day of classes.

International applicants should obtain academic advising prior to enrolling to ensure they can retain nonimmigrant status while enrolled at MFTI.

MFTI is authorized by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to accept and enroll F-1 visa students and will require international applicants to submit certain financial and academic documentation before they will be considered for admission.

Each applicant must have earned one of the following educational credentials from a MFTI recognized organization: a high school diploma or equivalent, a General Educational Development (GED®) certificate, or a post-secondary degree or professional degree. The diploma or other acceptable documentation of the applicant's educational achievement must be provided for the student's file by the end of registration unless MFTl grants an extension. An official high school transcript (or equivalent documentation) with the high school graduation date, an official GED® transcript with the content scores and an indicator that the student passed the GED® test, or an official college transcript (or equivalent documentation) with the grade point average (GPA) and, if applicable, the graduation date must be provided for the student’s file by the end of the second session of enrollment.

Prior educational performance is considered in conjunction with demonstrated proficiency in college-level skills to determine admissibility. MFTI grants admission to individuals whose prior educational performance meets the criteria outlined below. Applicants whose prior educational performance does not meet these criteria must complete the college-level skills evaluation and demonstrate specific basic skill levels in order to be granted admission. All applicants must complete college-level skills evaluation through standard means prior to starting classes, to determine appropriate initial course placement.

Applicants are accepted if they meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Have earned a qualifying associate degree or higher from a MFTI recognized post-secondary institution.
  • Have earned a high school diploma or the equivalent, as well as completed an appropriate amount of qualifying college-level work at MFTI recognized post-secondary institutions, with grades of at least C (70%) or a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 2.00 (on a 4.0 scale).
  • Have achieved an Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score of at least 60 on their Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) for admission to the military as documented on an original score report.

Applicants must show evidence of college-level skills appropriate to the chosen program in at least one of the following ways:

  • Submit ACT or SAT examination scores deemed appropriate by MFTI. Although requirements may vary by program, the minimum scores MFTI considers when evaluating college-level skills are: ACT Math – 17; ACT English – 17; SAT Math – 500; SAT Reading – 500. Applicants with lower scores in one or both areas may still demonstrate college-level skills in any of the other ways listed. In addition, applicants should note that minimum scores considered for SAT examinations taken prior to March 2016 are: Math – 460; English – 460.
  • Attain appropriate scores on MFTI administered placement examinations in reading, writing, arithmetic and algebra.
  • Submit required documentation indicating acceptable grades in qualifying work completed at a recognized institution.
