Fees & Registration
MTA Program Fees

The MTA fee includes trainer costs and instructional materials; this includes the primary text for all graduate level courses which is sent directly to participants upon completion of registration. For some programs, the instructional materials fees are waived if the district prints the materials and delivers them to the training site. A light meal will be provided during all after-school, multi-session courses. MTA prefers to contract with the school district food services. This cost is part of the program fee. MTA accepts credit cards (MasterCard and Visa only), purchase orders, and personal checks.

Fitchburg State University Tuition

Undergraduate or graduate credit is available through Fitchburg State University (FSU) for some programs. Participants must register and pay tuition at the first session; payment is to FSU, which accept checks, credit cards [American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover].
