Steps To Complete Online Enrollment

MC uses an online registration process for Dual Enrollment students attending MCPS schools. Students will be able to complete all enrollment steps, obtain appropriate approvals, and track progress electronically.

IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS:

First, review the College and program requirements, then meet with your high school counselor to discuss your overall education plan to include your high school program of study and the college course(s) you wish to take.  Download and review the "important documents" (see above), for reference and use. MC Counselors are also available to help students select courses that will lead towards a degree and/or transfer to a four-year institution.

Submit an MC admissions application online following the instructions below. MC will confirm your DE participation with your high school DEPA, assign you a College ID number (M number), and mail you an admissions welcome letter. 

As a high school student, the entire enrollment process is handled through the Dual Enrollment Office. Please check with your MCPS DEPA or an MC Academic Coordinator should you have any immediate questions. 

The Dual Enrollment office will contact you by email once you have submitted the admissions application and your info has been verified. This process generally takes up to 2-3 business days after proper submission. The email you receive will notify you regarding next steps to enroll at MC. Additionally, you will be mailed an admissions letter with other important information that you will need as a student. Please keep this in a safe place, as you will need to reference it later.

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.
