New first-years enrolling at CMC in the fall semester register for classes for the first time at the conclusion of new student orientation before fall classes start. Over the summer, some incoming first-year students are registered for a portion of the first-semester course load in courses such as by-invitation-only courses. New first-years are assigned a 2-hour registration window before classes start, during which time only new students are able to register and make schedule changes. Once classes start, registration opens for all students.
First-year students entering CMC mid-year are offered a registration opportunity in January before spring classes begin.
