In keeping with its philosophy of offering a program of the highest quality, MTSA continually evaluates its educational program via its institutional effectiveness process and reserves the right to make changes in the policies, curriculum, or practicum at any time including any fees or costs related to these changes.  

The MTSA Student Handbook is updated annually. However, items in the handbook may change between publications. Such changes are expected to be minimal. Students will receive notification of these changes and are expected to abide by them.
