Steps for International Students

Transient

  • Transient students are required to provide an official transcript from current college/university and copies of transcripts from every Texas public institution college or university previously attended.
  • Continued enrollment is contingent on receipt of official transcripts.
  • Transcripts should be sent electronically, institution to institution, via EDI or SPEEDE if those services are available.
  • Students attending classes at Texas public institutions should request the Texas Success Initiative Status be included in the transcript.

Failure to provide all official transcripts by the end of the 15th class day of the term will result in a HOLD on your account. Students will not be able to register for additional classes, see their grades, or receive their official Midland College transcript until all official transcripts have been received and processed.

For details regarding specific transcript/score information, refer to the Catalog & Student Handbook

Texas Success Initiative (TSI)

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a program designed to help students be successful in college. It includes assessment of students before entering a state-supported college or university, advisement and an individual plan designed to prepare students to meet college-readiness skills. Students are required to submit TSI assessment test scores or proof of exemption prior to enrolling.

HELPFUL INFORMATION

    • In most cases, Transient students in Texas have already addressed the TSI requirement at their home institution. Please request that your institution include your TSI information on your transcript (if the institution is a Texas public college or university).

    • Students who are from a private or out-of-state college or university may meet the TSI requirement if the student has earned college-level coursework in English (equivalent to ENGL1301 or 1302) or any college-level Math.

    • Visit our TSI Information page for more information. 

    TSI Information & Requirements

  • Online Students

    Students taking online classes only do not need to submit meningitis documentation. They will receive a notification that there is a warning on their account, acknowledge the message, and continue to add the class. The warning keeps students from registering for on-MC campus classes.  

    Meningitis Vaccine

    As of January 1, 2014, all entering students under the age of 22 at an institution of higher education are required to show proof of an initial meningococcal vaccination or a booster dose during the five-year period prior to enrolling. They must get the vaccine at least 10 days before the semester begins. Students planning to take online classes only are not required to submit meningitis documentation.

    Helpful Information

    • When submitting meningitis documentation via email or fax, include your MC student ID number.
    • Local pharmacies that carry the vaccine include: HEB, Grahams, and Walgreens.
    • Typical shot cost at pharmacy is $129.00.

    Exemptions

    A separate, signed application must be submitted ONLINE for each individual to receive an exemption from Texas meningococcal vaccination requirements. This form is for official use only and is not valid if photocopied. You must have a working printer to complete this transaction. If the student is 17 years or younger, the form must be signed by a parent/guardian.

    Exemption Form

    For more information regarding college vaccine requirements, visit the Texas Department of State Health Services Vaccine Requirements website and the Texas Legislature SB62 website.
