Maysville Community and Technical College was founded in 2004 after the merger of Maysville Community College and the Rowan Technical College in Morehead, Kentucky. The college is one of 16 schools that comprise the Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges network. Maysville CTC operates three campuses and numerous extension centers across northeastern Kentucky. Besides the main campus in Maysville, there are campuses in Morehead and Cynthiana. The Cynthiana campus is also known as the Licking Valley Campus. Maysville CTC is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Maysville CTC offers associate’s degrees, diplomas and certificates. The associate’s degree can be transferred to a four-year institution, with the student entering at junior standing. Diploma and certificate programs are designed to quickly train students in employable skills.

Distance learning at Maysville CTC allows students to take full-credit classes on their own schedule. Students must have access to a fairly modern desktop or notebook computer and a high-speed Internet connection. An online class is identical to a traditional class on a student’s transcript.

Unique Programs

Maysville CTC offers a Workforce Solutions program for area employers. Non-credit professional development and training programs are available to corporations at a discounted price. A more skilled workforce benefits the community and the economy in countless ways.


Prospective Maysville CTC students must have earned a high-school diploma or GED by the time of application. Official score reports from the ACT or COMPASS test are also required of new applicants. The Maysville CTC application can be completed online or on paper. Scores from the standardized tests will help academic advisers and admissions officers place students in the appropriate levels of math, reading and English. Maysville CTC has an open admissions policy; every applicant meeting the basic requirements will earn admission. However, certain technical programs may have stricter guidelines than the college as a whole.

Transfer students must send official transcripts of all previous college work as part of their application. Generally, Maysville CTC expects transfer students to show at least a 2.0 GPA on completed work. The registrar determines which credits can be transferred from the other institutions. Students with a GPA of less than 2.0 may be admitted on a probational basis.

Students who have been out of the KCTCS system for more than two years are eligible for academic bankruptcy. With academic bankruptcy, credits earned in the past will not count in the formulation of grade point average. For-credit courses will count towards a student’s degree or certificate program.

Financial Aid

The mission of Maysville CTC, as with all of Kentucky’s community colleges, is to provide a quality and affordable education to the state’s residents. The majority of students, however, still need assistance in covering the bill for their tuition, fees and books. Students needing help paying for college should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as early as possible. This application makes the student eligible for many kinds of federal and state aid, and helps financial aid officers put together a package that will best meet the student’s needs.

Financial aid comes in three forms: grants, scholarships and loans.


The federal government administers both Pell Grants and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. Students with demonstrated financial need are eligible for both of these programs. The state of Kentucky oversees the College Access Program (CAP). Funds for CAP are limited, so early application becomes even more important. Grant funds represent free money that does not have to be repaid.


Like grants, scholarships never have to be repaid. Many scholarship awards are based on academic performance, while others also take financial need into account. Some scholarships are open to all students and some are only for students pursuing a particular degree program.


Because of the relative affordability of a community college education, loans are typically not encouraged. Exceptional circumstances, however, may require a student to seek out this sort of funding. The federal government is the prime lender for Direct Loans. These loans offer low interest rates and a variety of repayment plans. If a borrower experiences job loss or other hardship, the lender is understanding and willing to grant deferrals for up to several years.

The student body at Maysville CTC numbers around 4,500, with steady growth expected into the future. The majority of these students are Kentucky natives, with a few coming from nearby states like Ohio. Like many community colleges, the non-traditional population is well-represented. Nearly half of all students are 25 or older.

Maysville CTC does not offer any form of student housing. A cafeteria in the Calvert Center in Maysville offers breakfast and lunch options through the week. Visible parking permits are required for students that wish to park on campus. The fee for parking permits is included with tuition.

Expansion has been the norm at all Maysville CTC campuses. New extension centers in Paris and Montgomery County reach students in communities otherwise lacking higher education. The Licking Valley Campus moved into a new, 19,000 square foot space in 2002. In 2010, a new Science Building opened on the Maysville campus. All students in the Maysville CTC system have access to the Kentucky Virtual Library, while brick and mortar libraries offer their services at all three campus locales.

Student Enrollment Demographics

Local Community

Residents of northeast Kentucky can attest to its natural beauty and cultural richness. The Rowan Campus of Maysville CTC sits at the northern extent of the Daniel Boone National Forest. A few miles west of town, Cave Run Lake provides limitless recreational opportunities, including fishing, camping, boating and hunting. The Pioneer Weapons area on the lake’s western shore offers real wilderness. In Maysville, the Ohio River is the scene for fireworks and festivals throughout the warm summer months. Bluegrass and traditional music are enormously popular in the region. Events like the Clack Mountain Festival provide a common ground for music lovers young and old.
