Online Registration

Students may register for courses, drop and add, withdraw from courses, make payment, and obtain grades online from their MyMCC student portal account.

In-Person Registration

Students may register for courses, drop and add courses, withdraw from courses, and make payment, by visiting the MCC campus or MCC Centers. In person registration requires a photo ID in the form of the MCC Student ID card, valid Colorado driver's license, or other officially recognized ID so be sure to bring proper documents. Hours may vary, so it is recommended you call ahead if you are traveling long distances. Special registration dates are listed in the Schedule of Classes for each semester.

Full-Time/Part-Time Status

Students enrolled in 12 credits or more are considered to be attending full-time. Summer students must meet the same criteria.

Course Wait List

Students may choose to enroll in an electronic wait list when a desired course is full. If an opening occurs the wait list student is notified. It is then the responsibility of the student to register and pay for the course within one day.

Maximum Course Load

A full-time course load is a minimum of twelve (12) and a maximum of eighteen (18) credits per semester. If an academic advisor and student determine that additional credits are necessary, written approval by a Division Chair, Vice President of Instruction, or MCC Center Director is required.

Note: Certain Occupational/Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs approved by the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE) may require students to take up to twenty-four (24) credit hours per term. For these programs, students are allowed to take all necessary courses without written approval.

Adding and Dropping Courses

Students may add or drop courses by accessing their MyMCC student account. Courses dropped by that course's published refund deadline (this date is on the student schedule at the MyMCC portal account) may be eligible for a tuition refund. Beyond that date dropped courses are considered a withdrawal and recorded with a "W" grade and no refund is issued. Financial Aid students who are considering dropping a course or courses should speak to a Financial Aid officer before taking this action so they are aware of any financial implications the change may have on their account.

See TUITION AND FEES for applicable payment rules for added courses

Repeat Course Limits

Application

This guideline applies to the state system of community colleges.

Principle

In order to increase retention and student success, the state system of community colleges has the following limits with regard to repeated courses.

Guideline

Repeated Courses

The following guidelines apply to all students taking credit bearing courses:

  • Students will be limited in the number of times that they can take the same course
  • Certain courses are exempt from the repeat course procedure due to the nature/offering of the course
  • If a student has taken a course twice or more and attempts to register for the course an additional time, the student will not be able to register for that particular course until an action plan is created and approval granted by the college appointed staff member. Please note that the student is able to register for other courses without needing an action plan or approval as per college rules and regulations
  • If the college appointed staff member does not feel that the registration is warranted, the student may appeal via the college's designated appeal policy
  • If a student has taken a course three times and wants to register for the course a fourth time, the student must appeal via the college's designated appeal policy

Course Changes & Cancelations by MCC

MCC retains the right to cancel or alter programs or course offerings where enrollments are insufficient to permit them to be offered on an educationally sound and economically efficient basis. Also, course numbers and descriptions are subject to change.

Withdrawal

Students must officially drop college courses by accessing their MyMCC student account and dropping a course. If this is done after the refund deadline for the course, the student will be assigned a "W" Withdrawal grade. Tuition and fees are non-refundable at this point in the term. A "W" is not computed in the GPA; however, it may affect the student’s satisfactory progress for financial aid purposes. Financial Aid Students should consult a financial aid advisor before taking this step to be advised on how this will affect them.

See GRADES & GRADING

Total Withdrawal from the College

A student who drops or withdraws from all courses in a term is considered to have exercised a total withdrawal from the college. College administration may initiate a total withdrawal from the college for death, veteran service, non-attendance, non-payment of tuition and fees, disciplinary problems and similar reasons.
