Tips on how to use the online application system. This
is a short video on how to register for the online application system and tips on
how to navigate through it. All Intents to Apply and Full Applications at MHT require the use of this online application system, and it
is helpful if you are a first-time user.
Helpful hint: If you're using the "Forgot Password" button to reset your password, when the system asks for your "current password" it is asking you to re-enter the temporary password you received via email.
