How to Register for Classes


Questions regarding registration or registration forms that need to be processed can be sent to your Campus Registrar in the Records and Registration Office using your MC email address.  We will respond to inquiries in the order that they are received.


MC Student

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. 

You can view class schedules and MC Programs, Majors, and Degrees online.

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.

Most Classes Are Fully Online

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.

Before You Register

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. 

Search the Schedule of Classes:

Be sure to check classes you want to take for course prerequisites and assessment levels

If you are a visiting student from another college or university and plan to take classes at MC to transfer back to your home college/university, visit Resources for Visiting Students

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

Register and Pay on Time

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, Get Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader.-Link opens in new window.) 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. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Very few. Under limited circumstances, students are allowed to change or add courses after the class has begun. Exceptions will be granted and approved by the Dean or designated Department Chair for the discipline in consultation with the course instructor. 

  • If you are assessed by the instructor or the department and it is determined that you need to be assigned to a different course, you will need documentation of the new assessment and approval from the department chair.
  • If the College cancels your class too late for you to add another class, you will need to obtain approval from the department chair.
  • If there is a documented registration error by the College, you will need approval from the campus registrar, followed by approval from the department chair.
  • If you have a documented medical emergency that prohibited you from registering online or in person prior to the start of the class, you will need documentation of the medical emergency and approval from the campus registrar, followed by approval from the department chair.
  • If you registered on time, attended the course, but were dropped from the course for reasons other than listed above, you will need approval from the department chair.
Deans and department chairs for academic departments, after consultation with the instructor(s) of the class(es), will approve exceptions for: Add/Drop, Assessment, and Course Cancellation. The Office of Records and Registration will assist you with exceptions relating to College Error and Medical. The approver for these two exceptions is the campus registrar.

Do not go to the class and ask the professor. Your appeal for a registration exception must be reviewed and approved by the campus registrar and/or the appropriate dean or department chair.

The campus registrar and/or deans or department chairs provide the approval for registration exceptions. Deans and Chairs work with faculty to determine if space is available in classes, and if students can make up the work they missed from registering late.
Priority Registration
Priority registration is available to returning students with at least 30 earned credit hours. If you are eligible for priority registration, you may register for classes the week before general registration begins. This provides students, especially full-time students, an opportunity to register early for classes they may need to complete their degree program. You will be notified if you qualify for priority registration.
After You Register
  • Go to MyMC and pay your bill or set up a payment plan. Pay on time to ensure your class registration is not dropped.
  • If you have financial aid check with the Financial Aid office to make sure your charges are covered.
  • Buy books and other course materials in person or online.
  • Check the calendar to find out when classes begin.
  • Review your schedule in MyMC the first day of each class to ensure the room assignment hasn't changed.
