For the 2013 Spring Semester Registration period, Admissions would like to assist you in the most efficient way possible to reduce long lines and wait times. Please help us by following these guidelines:
· We are very fortunate to be in our new location, please NO food or drink in the building at all times.
· Cell Phone Quiet Zone: For your security and confidentiality we ask that you silence cell phones and refrain from use inside the lobby.
· Please keep safety in mind; your safety is important to us.
· If you have a hold on your student record you will not be allowed to register. Please check your status prior to registration.
To reduce wait times during peak registration periods:
· Completely fill in the registration card neatly (please print) using blue or black ink.
· Provide your Coyote Tracks ID number and an active email address at the time of registration.
· Have your valid photo identification readily available for the Admissions staff.
· We ask that the inner lobby be reserved for only the student registering; please ask your companions to wait in the outer lobby or outside.
We appreciate your cooperation with these guidelines. Thank you!

Major Change in State Course Repetition Policy - October 2012

Students with the grades of D, F, or W are limited to a total of three (3) enrollments in the same course. After this point, the student cannot retake the course at CMC.

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION STEPS
1. Fill Out Application for Admission Online
The application for admission is available at www.cccapply.org Students must complete the application prior to taking the assessment test. Please note it takes 24 hours for your application to upload from CCCApply. Please call 760-366-3791, ext. 4232 to obtain your CMC Student ID #, "Coyote Tracks ID #."
2. Take Assessment Test
The Assessment Test identifies the best level of English, reading, and mathematics courses at which students need to begin their college program of study. All matriculated students are required to take the Assessment Test, except those students who have completed English Composition and Intermediate Algebra with grades of "C" or higher at another accredited college or university. The Assessment Test is not a timed exam. Students should allow approximately two hours to complete the test comfortably. To schedule an appointment, call Admissions & Records at 760-366-3791, ext. 4232. Please remember to bring a picture ID and your CMC Student ID #. Testing is also available at the Base Office of Student Services: 760-366-3791, ext. 4368.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for the test. Results and score interpretation are provided immediately following the exam. Students should keep the test results and bring them when meeting with a counselor, advisor or when attending orientation.
Non-CMC students taking the assessment test at CMC for another college, will be assessed a $5.00 fee.
Before taking the Assessment Test you may want to practice with the free prep review test available at www.testprepreview.com On the left hand side, click on the second link in the list "Accuplacer Test Practice." Also visit www.collegeboard.com/students/testing/accuplacer for more information.
If you have taken the Assessment Test at the high school, please bring a copy of your Assessment Test results to Admissions & Records at CMC's Main Campus.
3. Participate in New Student Orientation and Register for Classes
Students enrolling for the first time are required to attend a small group orientation before classes begin. Please call (760) 366-3791, ext. 4232 to make an appointment to attend a two hour session. Please do not bring children to orientation sessions. Schedules for Student ID Cards, Assessment Tests, and E-Orientation
4. Fill Out Financial Aid Paperwork
You may qualify for a Board of Governors Waiver (BOGW) for fees. See the Financial Aid Office for details. You may also be eligible to receive a Pell Grant or other forms of aid to assist with school expenses. Fill out the "FAFSA" application as soon as possible. Students applying for financial aid need to apply as early as possible to avoid delays in receiving funds. FAFSA applications are available in the Financial Aid Office in the Office of Student Services and the Base Programs Office, and online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov
Admissions & Records
Full or Closed Classes
When a course reaches its maximum capacity, students cannot be added to the course. Maximum capacities for classroom courses are based on the maximum fire code capacity per each room where the course will be taught. Maximum capacities for online courses are based on faculty contracts and cannot be adjusted. Students who find that desired courses are closed are encouraged to check the Schedule of Classes to select an alternative section of those courses.
Once a class is full, the next person trying to enroll will become the first person on the wait list and be the first person to be offered a seat in the class if someone drops or becomes an "instructor drop" for non-attendance. Coyote Tracks (student database) tracks who is next in line to be offered the open seat in the class.
In order to be wait listed in a class, you must provide Admissions & Records with an updated email address. If you are the first person on the wait list and a seat becomes available, you will be notified via email, you will then have 24 hours, until the end of the business day, to come into Admissions & Records and register for that class. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Wait List Restrictions: Students are restricted to being either in a section or on one wait list for a section of that course. However, a student can be on a wait list for a Chem class and on a wait list for an English class, as these are not the same course. No multiple wait listing for the same course within different sections is permitted, but they can be wait listed on multiple separate courses.
Students cannot "crash" a class! This is why we have wait listing.
Auditing a course is not permitted.
