Log in to your myMCC and register yourself online. Contact your advisor (as listed on your Degree Works) if you need assistance selecting the correct classes.


  • If you’re taking a course to supplement your education at another college, make sure your credits will transfer by checking with that college.
  • NOTE: To take a class or two at MCC, you may need to provide an unofficial transcript to show prerequisite compliance, score at the satisfactory level on placement testing or receive instructor permission.
  • After you register, if you change your mind about taking a class, be sure to drop the course before the semester starts. Otherwise, you will be charged tuition.


You can take a class or two without going through the college admission process. However, as a non-matriculated student you cannot receive financial aid. If you are interested in financial aid, please apply for admission to an MCC program.

By becoming an “official” part-time degree-seeking (matriculated) MCC student, your education becomes even more affordable, as you can apply for loans, grants and even MCC scholarships.
