Do you need help in classes you are taking? Do you need help deciding which classes to take? Or, do you already know the classes you want but simply need to register for them? Martin Community College offers a variety of helpful solutions. (Note: if you are not a current student, please see the Future Students area, and apply for admission.)
If you already have an idea of the classes you will need, take a look at what is being offered next semester by checking out the Class Schedules and Textbooks area. This area contains all class and seminar schedules. If you need help selecting classes, see your advisor or talk with a counselor in the MCC Admissions Office.
Towards the end of each semester, you will generally be required to take a final exam in each of your classes. Very often, final exams are not scheduled exactly as your classes are scheduled. Check the current Final Exam Schedule to view a complete listing of times and dates, and plan accordingly.
If you need assistance outside class, help may be available to you in the form of peer tutors. To request a tutor or to become one, see the MCC Academic Skills Lab area for more information, or contact the MCC Academic Skills Lab.
Paying for college can be one of the most difficult -- and stressful -- aspects of your college experience. Be proactive in acquiring financial aid, and carefully consider your options as you explore financial aid. Make yourself aware (and adhere to) any deadlines that might affect your ability to be awarded, or maintain, financial aid.

Generally, classes at MCC will require you to purchase textbooks and other supplies, such as computer software, access codes, or graphing paper. The on-campus MCC Bookstore can provide you with nearly any required purchases. Visit the the MCC Bookstore, or contact the MCC Bookstore staff.
Internet connectivity is becoming a cornerstone to everyday life, and college courses are no exception. Most courses make some use of online activities, such as e-mail and other online interactions and communications.
If you are having any technical problems with an online class, see the technical-help page for online classes.

If you are close to graduating, congratulations! This is an exciting moment in your life, and you want to make sure everything goes smoothly. To ensure graduation day is your day, take a moment to ensure you meet all graduation requirements.
All along during your time at MCC, you -- in conjunction with you advisor -- should be sure you are taking the classes you need to graduate. In your semester just before your last, schedule a brief conference with your advisor to make absolutely sure you meet all graduation requirements and are on-track for graduation. Then, visit the MCC Registrar's Office to acquire a Graduation Packet, which contains everything you need to finalize your graduation and reserve your spot at the graduation ceremony.
Get involved! Your time in college is about more than just taking classes; it is about living life to its fullest, having new experiences, and networking with people from all walks of life. Check out some of the exciting clubs, associations, events, and areas at MCC:
If you are having trouble in a curriculum class and believe that you will not receive the grade you are wanting, you have the option of withdrawing from the class. As set forth in the Curriculum Academic Calendar, if you withdraw on or before the "Last Day to Withdraw," you are allowed to "withdraw" from courses with a grade of "W" placed on your transcript for those withdrawn courses. The grade of "W" does not affect your GPA. Choosing to withdraw from classes is an important decision, and you are urged to discuss your choice with your advisor, a college counselor, and the MCC Financial Aid Office before proceeding.
Be sure to check the Curriculum Academic Calendar to make sure you withdraw on or before the Last Day to Withdraw. If you are enrolled and do not withdraw (and thus, overcut you classes), you will receive a grade of “WF” in each overcut class, which is equivalent to a grade of "F" when calculating your GPA.
In any case, if you are receiving financial aid, you may be held responsible for repayment of aid. Please refer to the MCC College Catalog. To process a course withdrawal, complete the following steps:
