Mohawk Valley Community College has set new registration deadlines for the 2013-14 academic year. For new and returning students, registrations will be accepted until the business day before the start of classes. New applicants and returning students should register as early as possible to meet the deadlines and take advantage of the best selection of classes.
For the Fall 2013 semester, the last day to register is Aug. 27 at 7 p.m.; classes begin Aug. 28. For the Spring 2014 semester, the last day to register is Jan. 21; classes begin Jan. 22. All other deadlines and procedures for billing, placement testing, and other necessary enrollment steps are unaffected. For a complete list of these steps visit http://www.mvcc.edu/firststeps.
The new deadlines do not affect adding and dropping classes once the semester begins. However, students who attempt to create a new schedule after the deadline will be required to wait until the following semester. The Offices of Admissions and Advisement will assist students with making plans for future semesters.
Students can avoid delays by scheduling now instead of waiting until the last minute. Registration for the Fall 2013 semester is currently open to new and returning students. Students may also register for the Summer 2013 semester at this time.
The new deadlines were adopted as part of MVCC’s ongoing study of student success rates. Students who schedule after the start of classes have been more likely to fail or drop all their classes by semester’s end. Registering sooner helps students be better prepared and increases the likelihood they will succeed academically. It also minimizes classroom disruptions from students who start class later than their peers.
