Priority Registration - Fall 2014

What is Priority Registration?
Priority Registration takes place exclusively online from April 14 - April 27, 2014 and allows current students who have completed a specified number of credit hours to register before students who have completed fewer credit hours. Registration will be controlled by date and is based on your total credits earned to date. Please see the chart below detailing the number of credits that must be earned (completed) in order to register on the specified date.

How do I know how many credits I have earned?
The total number of credits you have earned can be found on your unofficial transcript when you log into MyNCC. The following do not count toward total earned credits: courses in progress (courses must be graded to be considered complete), repeated courses (only one counts, if successful), audited courses or courses that are graded as 'Incomplete' or 'Failed'. Transfer credits do count.

Do I need to make an appointment with my advisor prior to registration?
All full-time students (students registered for 12 or more credits per semester) must have their advisor's approval prior to registration. For more information about advising services, visit the Academic Advising page.

Do I need to pay for my courses the same day that I register?
No, you will not owe any funds toward your tuition the day that you register. Tuition payments are due to the Bursar's Office no later than August 5, 2014

If you owe an overdue financial obligation to the College, however, you will not be eligible for Spring or Summer registration.

What day do I register?
The registration system at the College will assign students to specific dates based upon the total credits you have earned to date. You will not be allowed to register before the date assigned by the registration system. Once your assigned date arrives, you will be able to register and the registration system will continue to remain open to you from that point forward. You will then be able to make schedules changes until registration for the semester ends. Please refer to the grid below for all important dates regarding registration.

How will I be notified of my registration date?
MyNCC will show your allowed registration date based upon completed credits.

What should I do to prepare for registration?
Full-time students will need to be cleared by an advisor prior to their registration date.  Full-time students should schedule a time to meet with their assigned advisor.  Students can find their advisor's name and contact information in MyNCC under My Advisor.

Part-time students are not required to meet with an advisor.  However, part-time students are encouraged to consult with an advisor if they wish in the Advising Office on the Main Campus or the Student Services Office on the Monroe Campus.

Prior to meeting with an advisor, students should use the "Courses Needed to Graduate" feature in MyNCC to determine which courses are still necessary to complete their degree, certificate, or diploma.  Students should also plan a tentative schedule for the Fall semester to share with the advisor when they meet to discuss their courses.
