Adding and Dropping Courses

Students may add or drop courses, withdraw from courses, or pay via their online MyMCC student account. Courses dropped by that course's published refund deadline may be eligible for a tuition refund. Beyond that date, dropped courses are considered a withdrawal and recorded with a "W" grade and no refund is issued.


Financial Aid students who are considering dropping a course or courses should speak to a Financial Aid officer before taking this action so they are aware of any financial implications the change may have on their account.

Course Wait List

Maximum Course Load

A full-time course load is a minimum of twelve (12) and a maximum of eighteen (18) credits per semester. If an academic advisor and student determine that additional credits are necessary, written approval by the Dean of Instruction, Vice President of Instruction, or Director of Regional Community Outreach is required.

Note: Certain Occupational/Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs approved by the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE) may require students to take up to twenty-four (24) credit hours per term. For these programs, students are allowed to take all necessary courses without written approval.

Course Changes and Cancelations by MCC

MCC retains the right to cancel or alter programs or course offerings where enrollments are insufficient to permit them to be offered on an educationally sound and economically efficient basis. Also, course numbers and descriptions are subject to change.


Students must officially drop college courses by accessing their MyMCC student account and dropping course(s).

If a drop occurs after the course's listed drop deadline, the student will be assigned a "W" Withdrawal grade.

A "W" grade is not computed in the GPA. Tuition and fees are non-refundable when a course is dropped after the refund/drop deadline for the course.

Financial Aid Students should consult a financial aid advisor before taking this step to be advised on how this will affect them. Drops/Withdrawals done after the refund deadline for the course may affect the student's satisfactory progress (SAP) for financial aid purposes.

Total Withdrawal from the College

A student who drops or withdraws from all courses in a term is considered to have exercised a total withdrawal from the college. College administration may initiate a total withdrawal from the college for death, veteran service, non-attendance, non-payment of tuition and fees, disciplinary problems and similar reasons.
