Standard Registration Periods
CMC’s academic year is three semesters (summer, fall, spring). Standard registration periods pertain to credit courses that start the first week of the semester (standard) and courses that start after the first week (non-standard). Click on the links below for more information.
Students must meet campus academic advising requirements and have a zero balance on their account. Payment is deferred to a later date and not due at the time of early registration.
An invoice will be mailed to the student. Fax-in, in-person, and phone-in registration methods are available during this period.
Early registration is offered for prior to fall and spring semesters only. No early registration period is offered for summer semester.
All methods of registration (in-person, phone, fax, mail, and online) are available for students to use.
Payment is due at the time of registration during this period.
- Currently registered student dropping and/or adding courses to make a schedule change will be allowed to register after the first class session during the drop/add period with approval from both the course faculty and campus instructional leader or designee.
- Students starting the registration process are allowed to register for a class during drop/add period at least one day before the first class session. Student must meet campus advising requirements and get approval from the academic advisor or designee.

Class Attendance Policy
NOTE: A no-show for a face-to-face class is defined as lack of “attendance” where attendance is defined as one of the following:
- Physical class attendance where there is direct interaction between instructor and student
- Submission of an academic assignment
- Examination, interactive tutorial, or computer-assisted instruction
- Study group assigned by school
- Participation in on-line discussion about academic matters
- Documented initiation of contact with instructor to ask question about academic subject
NOTE: A no-show for an online class is a student who has not:
- Completed the introductory assignment(s) by the deadline
“No-Show” Reporting: If the student has not “attended” (per language above), the student will be reported as a no-show on Wednesday, January 23. Class reinstatement cannot occur after this point without significant documented extenuating circumstances.
“No-Show” Reporting and Financial Aid: If a student is dropped from a course (or courses) for non-attendance, the resultant loss in credit hours may cause a reduction and/or cancellation of his/her financial aid award. Like class reinstatement, financial aid awards can only be reinstated with documented extreme extenuating circumstances. Reinstatement in class DOES NOT guarantee financial aid reinstatement.
