Student Services

Registering for Classes

Registering for classes at MCTC is done online. Students use their student id number and PIN (provided in their acceptance communications from the Admissions Office) to log in to eServices on the college website.

New award-seeking students who have completed the admission process and the placement test requirement must complete an orientation prior to their first-term registration. During Orientation, new students will receive:

  • Information about College activities, policies and resources
  • Assistance with choosing and registering for first-semester classes
  • Opportunities to ask questions of College staff and experienced students

New transfer students that do not require advising assistance have the option of completing a transfer orientation worksheet and then registering on their own when registration for transfer students begins.

Non-degree seeking students and students enrolled in non-credit continuing education are not required to attend an orientation session.

What every student must know

You are responsible for your registration, including academic consequences that result from your schedule.

You are responsible for all tuition and fee charges resulting from your registration and to meet the payment due date indicated in the class schedule.

MCTC reserves the right to drop you from courses for which you have not met the prerequisite requirements or have not tested into based on the results from your placement tests.

You may not register for more than one section of a class. Students who register for multiple sections of the same course may be subject to discipline and will have their duplicate enrollments cancelled.

Classes added through late registration (after the drop/add deadline) are not eligible for the Federal Pell Grant.
 

The College may drop you from classes for non-payment of tuition and fees.

If you have not provided an immunization record you may be blocked from registering. Minnesota law (M.S. 135A.14) requires college students to have current immunization records on file. If you are being blocked from registering for an immunization hold, you must submit the immunization form before you will be able to register. Students who need to update, or submit, their immunization records (including medical and conscientious exemptions) may complete the form and deliver it in person to the Student Services Center (T.2200), or fax it to 612-659-6250.

Registration dates

Dates vary depending on type of student: returning, new degree seeking or non-degree seeking. Refer to the academic calendar for a complete listing of dates and deadlines. The registration dates for continuing and returning students will be determined according to the number of credits earned at the time of registration. Registration dates for upcoming terms will be posted on the MCTC website. Students can check eServices to find out when their online registration window will open.

New student registration

If you are a new degree-seeking student, you must complete the admission and placement testing procedures and attend a new student orientation before registering for classes. Students are responsible for completing any prerequisites listed for a course prior to enrolling in the course. Not meeting all course prerequisites will result in the student's registration being blocked.

Transfer student registration

New degree, diploma or certificate program students transferring to MCTC from another college or university with 16 or more prior college credits and a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher may be eligible to complete the Orientation Worksheet for Transfer Students to meet the orientation requirement in order to register.

Transfer students who do not meet these guidelines must attend an orientation session before registering for classes.

Students are responsible for completing any prerequisites listed for a course prior to enrolling in the course. Not meeting all course prerequisites will result in the student's registration being blocked.

Under special circumstances, students who have completed the placement requirement and had their official transcripts evaluated (applicable to all transfer students) may petition to meet a course prerequisite by other documentable means. See the Student Services Center to determine if special registration will be allowed.

Course cancellations

The Office of Academic Affairs reserves the right to cancel a course or course section after the schedule has been published if the associate vice president of academic affairs determines that it would be in the best interest of the College. Students who registered for a course that has been cancelled will be notified via phone and mail.
