Cumulative averages are determined solely on the basis of points and credits earned at MCC. They are calculated by dividing the total of each semester's quality points by the total of each semester's credits.
2. My professor said he turned in a grade change for me. Why isn't the change on my records?
Processing of grade changes is usually done in a 24-hour turnaround time upon the receipt of the grade change in the Office of Records and Registration. Check with your professor to be sure he/she submitted it.
3. Why do I have to get a green slip from my professor when I'm just changing sections?
Once the add period has ended, students need to request permission to be admitted into courses even if it is only a section change. If permission is given by the instructor, a "green slip" will be signed and given to the student by the instructor. Green slips must also be signed by the Department Chairperson. Since policy on green slips differs among departments, students should contact the faculty member or department chair regarding their policy.
4. What if I'm not sure what I want to do?
MCC offers several resources to help you find out about your own talents and gather information on various career options. These free services are available to all MCC students. Just call the Counseling Center for details at 292-2030 or call/visit the Career Center at 292-2248, Bldg. 3-108.
5. Getting a degree is a lot of work. Is it worth it?
The latest employment trends indicate that those who have an associate's degree will earn 30% more than those with only their high school diplomas. Whether it's just a few classes or an entire degree, education can make you more marketable and more promotable. To continue to learn and grow can significantly enrich your life experience.
6. Can I afford it?
Monroe Community College offers you the best opportunity in terms of customer satisfaction and cost. Transfer students can significantly reduce the cost of a four year degree by completing their freshman and sophomore years at MCC. Financial aid and scholarships are available to those who qualify.
The real question is, can you afford NOT to go to school. Today, education gives you an edge on the job market. In an increasingly competitive and more technologically complex work environment, the average person cannot expect to get ahead without some additional training or a college degree.
7. How can I get my name on a Waitlist for a closed course?
Some courses offer a Waitlist to students that wish to enroll for a particular course but, for now, it is full. Simply ask the person helping you register to place you on the list - it is that simple! If you are using the WEB to register, click on the Add/Drop dropdown menu and highlight the word Waitlist. You will be notified if you are enrolled in the class. Students may wait list for courses that have reached their maximum enrollment capacity. As seats become available in courses, students are moved from a wait list status to an enrolled status. If you choose to take advantage of the wait list option, it is your responsibility to check your schedule regularly to track when you have moved from the wait list to the course roster. If you are no longer interested in the wait listed course, please remove your name from the waitlist through the web or by completing a drop/add slip. A student is financially responsible for all tuition and fees after the registration has been processed. Failure to know your registration status is not a valid reason for a refund.
