Misdemeanor Drug Conviction MT

Hello all,
I’m currently in my second year of college and was interested in transferring as an upper division student. 3.31 University GPA, 29 ACT… but the only hitch is I’m completing a deferred sentence for a marijuana conviction that will be complete in April 2013. How will this affect my chances for MT? And can you apply twice? I’ll have a completely blank criminal record after April
Thanks for any info

Misdemeanors aren’t too big a deal. You will get accepted. Make sure you disclose it when you apply for your MMC after your enrolled and taking classes. Talk to Peg Solveson in the classroom building. She’s the STCW coordinator at CMA. Very helpful. The only thing you have to worry about with that is the USCG and she will help you with that…
