Student Parking Permit Pick-up

Students who have already paid the $10.00 parking permit fee through Pay N’ Go and have completed the Google form will be able to pick up their parking permits from the MCTC Front Office reception desk on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday, August 10th from 9:00 -11:00 AM and 1:00 - 3:00 PM
  • Monday, August 15th from 1:00 -3:00 PM

Students who are unable to pick up their parking permits on these days will be able to pick them up the first week of school while at Miller.

Student Drop-off and Pick-up

Student Drop-off in the morning (before 1st period) and mid-day (before 5th period) is located in the front drive of Miller. Please do not wait to pull all the way up to the front door to exit your vehicle. Once in the front drive circle, please exit your vehicle, so traffic can continue to flow.

Student Pick-up in the morning (after 3rd period or after 4th period) and at the end of the day (after 7th period) is located behind MCTC (on the south side). Enter the pick-up line through the Shaw Center parking lot and line up. There is no pick-up in front of the school. It is unsafe to pick-up students in the street. Please follow the traffic pattern procedures as detailed in the MCTC Traffic Patterns Map below (teal arrows = Pick-up). Staff members will be out to direct you.
