Students wishing to enroll in more than 25.0 credit hours need to meet with an academic advisor or advocacy or disability support services counselor to request permission.  Generally, only students with a 2.5 or higher G.P.A. for the preceding quarters or demonstrated academic success are permitted to carry more than 25.0 credit hours.

Students are responsible for making any changes in their class schedule. All schedule changes are subject to College procedures, refund policies, and deadlines at all times.


MCC student orientation introduces students to College services and programs that support their educational and personal goals.  Orientation provides information on academic programs, advising and course scheduling, paying for college, campus safety, student support services, and tips for student success.  All new credit students participate in orientation as one of their next steps in becoming a MCC student.  The orientation is a no-cost, no-credit class with six interactive segments and embedded quizzes.  At the successful completion of all quizzes, students receive a certificate of completion.  For more information, go to http://orientation.mccnet.mccneb.edu/.

Change of Registration

The College provides specific timelines each quarter to change schedules. The following guidelines apply to course registration changes:

  • Courses may be added after the first class session with instructor approval. Forms are available in My Services online or in the Student Services office.  
  • Changes and refunds are effective on the date the request is received. The amount for a refund is automatically calculated by the date of the withdrawal. Students may view potential refunds by locating the course on the online credit schedule located on the MCC homepage and clicking Important Dates.
  • Students may withdraw from a course any time prior to the last day to drop a class section.
  • Withdrawing from a course within the designated drop period results in a W, which is recorded on the student’s permanent record.
  • Failure to withdraw from a class may result in the assignment of an F grade to the student’s permanent record.
  • Schedule changes are the responsibility of the student. Non-attendance does not constitute an official withdrawal or relieve a student of the financial obligation of tuition. 
  • Students receiving financial aid are advised to speak with a financial aid representative when dropping classes after the start of the quarter.

Schedule changes are the responsibility of the student.  The changes must follow College procedures, refund policies, and deadlines at all times. Academic advisors and/or the Contact Center are available to assist students with schedule changes.

Course Cancellations

The College may find it necessary to cancel a course due to insufficient enrollment or other extenuating circumstances. Whenever possible, the course is canceled prior to the first class meeting, and the students are notified. Students enrolled in a canceled course receive a full refund.

Books and Materials

Students are expected to obtain books, supplies, and materials needed for classes. In addition, some programs require the purchase of special items (tools, a camera, etc.).  A complete listing of special costs is available at the campus bookstores or online at https://www.mccneb.edu/Prospective-Students/Resources/Bookstore.aspx.  Students can also explore the textbook exchange at https://www.mccneb.edu/bookexch.
