  2. Under Attribute Type, you will see several options, including different course lengths (15-week Classes, 1st 7-week Classes, 2nd 7-week Classes, and 13-week Classes). Choose the length(s) you would like.

  3. A list of course subjects will display. Choose a subject to see all available courses. Check each section's start and end dates to confirm the class length.

Most courses at MC have a waitlist if the course fills. Add yourself to a waitlist for a closed course. If a space becomes available, you will be notified via your MC email address to register for the course. You have 48 hours (or 24 hours if within one week of the start of classes) to login to your MyMC account and change your registration status from "Waitlist" to "Registered Web" for that course. You will not be charged for the course until you register. Waitlists are purged two days prior to the start of the class. See the Waitlist FAQ for more information.

How to Register

Once you have your courses selected, log in to MyMC. Click on the "Registration" tab then choose the icon that says "Register for Classes." Online registration is available until the day before the class begins.

To register on the same day the class begins, go to an Office of Records and Registration on any campus prior to the class start time.

If you are not yet a student at MC, you'll need to apply first. See How to Apply and Register
