Registering for Classes

New student registration

If you are a new degree-seeking student, and you have completed the admission process and the placement test requirement, you will register with assistance from your advisors at your orientation. You are responsible for completing any prerequisites listed for a course before enrolling in the course. Not meeting the course prerequisites may result in you being dropped from the class or having your registration blocked.

Transfer student registration

If you are transferring to MCTC from another college or university, you may be eligible to complete the Orientation Worksheet for Transfer Students to meet the orientation requirement and register on eServices. You are welcome to join us for assistance with registration at Transfer Student orientation sessions.

Under special circumstances, if you have completed the placement requirement and had your official transcripts evaluated (applicable to all transfer students), you may petition to meet a course prerequisite. Visit student services in T.2200 or talk to your admissions or academic advisor to determine if special registration will be allowed.

Important information about registration

  • Whether you register with an advisor, or on your own, you will register for your MCTC classes using the eServices system online as shown in How to Register for Classes.
  • You are responsible for your registration, including academic consequences that may 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.
  • You may need to provide an immunization record form so you are not 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 will need to submit the immunization form to the student services office (T.2200) drop box before you will be able to register. You may also fax it to 612-659-6250.

Registration dates

When you are eligible for registration depends on what type of student you are (new, transfer or returning) and the number of credits you have already earned. Register for your classes as early as you are eligible. Summer session and fall semester registration both begin on March 16.

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 vice president of academic affairs determines that it would be in the best interest of the College. If you registered for a course that is been cancelled, you will be notified via phone and mail.
