How to register for courses

Registering for courses at MVCC can be done either in person at the window or online through each student's "Student Information and Registration System" (SIRS) account. In order to register in person, you are required to pick up or download a registration form from the Office of Records and Registration and fill out all necessary information.

To register online, you must know your M Number as well as your six-digit PIN password for your SIRS account. This information cannot be released over the phone or through email and must be obtained from the Office of Records and Registration through regular mail or in person.
