Step 2 – Advisement and Registration

  • Once you receive your transcript evaluation from the Registrar’s Office, contact your academic advisor to schedule your academic advisement appointment. Your advisor’s contact information was included with your transcript evaluation. For help contacting your advisor, please email
  • Since advisement is necessary prior to registration, be sure to schedule your appointment promptly.
  • After meeting with your advisor, you can register for courses.

Step 3 – Last minute items

  • If you completed any in-process courses, have your final transcripts sent to the Admissions Office. Transcripts need to be sealed to be considered official documents. 
  • Submit proof of MMR immunization if you haven’t already done so.
  • Meet with the Financial Aid office to discuss last-minute financing issues like creating your monthly payment plan.

Step 4 – Before classes begin

  • Attend Adult Degree Completion Orientation, which is typically scheduled a week prior to session start. During this evening, students get a chance to meet with their fellow adult learners, receive a tour of campus, and be provided with all essential materials for success including a copy of their schedule, a log-in and password for the college's internal website, an MSMC email address, student ID card, and parking permit.
