Next Steps Before You Can Register

IF YOU:

Completed and submitted an MC application but have NOT done the assessment/placement tests:

  • You should promptly complete any remaining placement test requirements.  Most courses require that you demonstrate skill levels in English, Reading and/or math prior to registration.
  • Students may be exempt from placement testing with appropriate alternative test scores (i.e. SAT, ACT, etc.)
  • Students with college-ready test scores from the High School ACCUPLACER Program (HSAP) do not need to retest in those specific areas.  These scores have been received by MC.
  • Information on MC’s Assessment/Placement testing, including available test dates, practice tests and criteria for exemption from placement testing can be found at www.montgomerycollege.edu/assessmentcenters
  • More information on  enrolling “step by step” can be found on the Admissions tab of  the MC website,  www.montgomerycollege.edu

 IF YOU:

Completed and submitted an MC application AND  have completed the assessment/placement process  but have NOT attended an Academic Orientation session:

  • You should attend a MAP/IMAP/ or e-MAP session.  Information about MAP sessions can be found at:   www.montgomerycollege.edu/emap 
  • More student  information to get advising can be found on the Counseling tab of  the MC website, www.montgomerycollege.edu

 IF YOU:

Have taken at least one course at MC and have already attended a MAP session:

  • You need advising to select your next semester courses and should see a counselor or advisor.  Students must complete the Advising Questionnaire and make arrangements to see a counselor/advisor by appointment by visiting the Starfish icon in the upper right corner of MyMC. 
  • Please note that students who were waived from course or assessment levels through Early Placement should be aware that this waiver DOES NOT exempt the student from having to meet the assessment levels for other MC courses.
