How to Register for Classes
For students who have already successfully applied for admission to MC, credit course registration is simple: Log in to MyMC, click on "Registration," then choose the icon that says “Register for Classes.”
For new students, see Getting Started: How to Apply and Register for a step-by-step guide to becoming an MC student.
After completing your registration, print your schedule. Make sure to pay your tuition and fees before the deadline to avoid having your class registration dropped. Go to MyMC and pay your bill or set up a payment plan. If you have financial aid check with the Financial Aid office to make sure your charges are covered.
To register for noncredit classes, visit the Workforce Development and Continuing Education course catalog.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, most classes are fully online until further notice. Students in certain programs may come to campus for face-to-face classes. See Student Guidance for more information.
If you haven’t applied yet, you’ll need to complete the admissions application and related assessment and advising steps before you can register. See Getting Started: How to Apply and Register for a step-by-step guide.

If you are not seeking a degree from MC but wish to take credit classes for career, graduate school preparation, or personal interest please be aware that most courses have assessment levels and/or prerequisites that you must meet prior to registration. Please review our Course Prerequisites and Assessment Levels.
On-Time Registration means that registration and payment are due before each class is scheduled to start. Early registration allows more time for early planning, including advising, applying for financial aid, ordering books, and locking in the classes you want at the times you need.
Online registration is available until 11:59 p.m. the day before the class starts. After this time, you may still register for a class the same day it begins, as long as you register before the class start time. To do so, complete a registration form (PDF, ) and email it to the campus registrarnew window on your campus.
Payment deadlines are based on the time of registration. Each student is responsible for his or her tuition and fees. Register for classes and then make payment arrangements so your courses are not dropped for nonpayment.
