MTECH Articulation

How the Articulation Credit Works


Mountainland Technical College (MTECH) students can receive UVU credit for non-credit coursework completed at the MTECH through the Credit Articulation Agreement. This satisfies a requirement toward an AAS Degree in Technology. MTECH programs in the following areas that meet or exceed 900 hours are eligible:

  • Automotive Technology
  • Cosmetology
  • Culinary Arts
  • Dental Assistant
  • Digital Media Technology
  • Information Technology
  • Machine Tool Technology
  • Medical Assistant
  • Medical Billing & Coding
  • Practical Nursing
  • Surgical Technology 
  • Web Programming & Development 
  • Pipe Welding Processes
  • Welding Technology 

Students who want to transfer from MTECH to UVU must meet UVU admission requirements, provide an official transcript, and pay all application and admission fees associated with getting UVU credit and acceptance. MTECH students can receive 14 credit hours toward the degree's Core Requirements and 16 credit hours toward the degree's Elective Requirements for a total of 30 credit hours. Students are unable to transfer these credits to other UVU programs or to other USHE credit institutions.

Expand Your Career Potential With An AAS Degree

The UVU Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Technology is ideal for MTECH students because it is designed for individuals working in a technical area who have considerable work experience and/or have specialized certifications, licenses, and apprenticeships.

Building upon the specializations students receive from MTECH, the AAS Degree in Technology includes core courses to provide fundamental knowledge of the latest technologies and elective courses so students can explore and learn skills across broader technical areas. There is also a required supervisory course where students learn skills to manage workers. Students who graduate with an AAS Degree in Technology can also continue their education by going on to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Technology Management.

Before admission to the AAS Technology Program, MTECH students must meet with the program advisor at UVU and complete an AAS Technology Advising Sheet. Once this document is signed, it becomes the articulation contract between the student and UVU. Take your first step today by contacting an advisor at UVU.
