In order to ensure a fair and balanced process, MPCTC is requiring that any reserved slot be paid in full no later than 2 months from the start of the academy. Names of attending recruits need to be updated in the online registration system 6-weeks in advance of the start date. If the tuition is not paid by the deadline, the agency will lose that reservation and MPCTC will move to the “waiting list.” Payment can be made by credit card or check through the MPCTC Finance Department. However, all State Agencies must use RSTARS to make payment; credit card forms are not acceptable.
