Mohave Community College will temporarily expand its services in January to ease spring semester registration for new and returning students. The student services offices on each of MCC’s campuses will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Jan. 10, 17 and 24. MCC’s student services office assists students with college enrollment and class registration. The office is regularly open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. MCC encourages anyone who is interested in taking spring semester classes to start the process right away to help avoid longer wait times as the semester approaches. The college will also extend its student services hours until 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 8. New and returning students are encouraged to attend to learn about the academic support services available to help them succeed in classes. Prospective students will also be able to gather enrollment information and are encouraged to apply prior to the event. Students must have their spring semester classes paid for by Jan. 10 or risk being dropped from their classes. Students who begin enrollment and registration after Jan. 10 have until Jan. 20 to take advantage of a payment plan that requires no down payment for classes and four monthly payments from February through May. Students who have not yet applied for federal financial aid may still do so, but they must pay for their classes in full or through a payment plan until their financial aid has been processed. Federal financial aid processing typically takes two to four weeks depending on the individual student’s situation and accurate submissions of requested documents. MCC is also offering “The College Experience.” The “Experience” will allow first-time MCC students to take only one of 30 pre-selected classes at half of the class’s tuition rate; the significantly reduced rates as part of this opportunity range between $80 and $160 per class. MCC is offering several new academic programs, including a caregiver program, certificate for production technology (CPT) for those interested in manufacturing, health information technician (HIT) for students interested in computer information sciences and medical assisting, and a new visual communications program for those interested in art and design. Prospective students are encouraged to fill out a free college application at http://www.mohave.edu.
