Can I take an online class if I'm not from the Madera area?
Currently, High School Enrichment classes are only available to students who attend school/reside in the State Center Community College District service area. If you are unsure whether you fall in this area, please give us a call at 559.675.4160 for clarification.
Am I required to complete the online orientation?
High School Enrichment students do not need to complete the online orientation. If you complete the online orientation, it will not count towards the orientation required of all high school graduates who are enrolling at MCC as a regular student.
I am a high school senior and already applied to the college with my high school. Do I need to fill out another application?
Yes, the High School Enrichment/Dual Enrollment application is different than the application seniors fill out for regular admission after graduation. If you want to take classes during your senior year as well as classes after you graduate high school, you will need to fill out both online applications using the same CCCApply account. The regular application can be found on the Local High School Students webpage.
Why do I get an error message on Self-Service when I try to register for a class?
High School Enrichment students cannot register online, including adding or dropping a class. Once you submit your online application and your High School Enrichment Packet, you will be notified by phone or email by MCC Admissions and Records when/if you are registered for your selected class(es). If you need to add or drop a class, follow the instructions in the section below.
How do I add or drop a class?
High School Enrichment students are not allowed to add or drop a class online through Self-Service. If you want to add or a drop a class, you must contact our Admissions and Records office at 559.675.4848 so we can add or drop the class for you.
What do I do if I want to take a different class than the one I put in my High School Enrichment packet?
If you end up wanting to take a different class than the original one you selected, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with the new class information. A counselor will then review your HSE packet and transcripts again in order to make sure you are eligible to take this new class. If the class is approved, your HSE packet will then be forwarded to the Admissions & Records Office for registration. If the class is not approved, a counselor will contact you by phone or email to schedule an appointment to discuss why it was not approved.
What happens if I forget to drop a class or just stop attending the class?
Failing to notify the MCC Admissions and Records office to drop a class may result in you receiving a “W” or “F” letter grade on your transcripts and becoming ineligible to participate in the High School Enrichment program. It is your responsibility to notify the MCC Admissions and Records office if you decide to not take a class after you were successfully registered for the class. Credit classes will remain on your permanent record even if the secondary school uses the coursework for high school credit. All coursework taken will appear on your SCCCD transcript and may affect your financial aid or academic status at any SCCCD college or center if enroll after high school. Visit the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy webpage or Satisfactory Progress, Probation, and Dismissal webpage for financial aid and probation policies.
What are waitlists?
A waitlist is a list that students can join and wait for seats to open in a class. If a student in the class drops, a seat opens up and is filled by a student on the waitlist. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a seat in the class. However, it does give you priority making it more likely you will get a seat in the class.
Waitlists will be active from the first day of registration through the Thursday prior to the start of the term. For short-term classes, the waitlist will close 7 days prior to the start of the class.
How do I register into a class from a waitlist?
If a seat becomes available for you in your waitlisted class, you will receive an "Add Authorization Granted" email. The email notification will only be sent to your college email account. Once "Add Authorization" is granted, you have four days (including weekends) to contact our Admissions and Records office to enroll you in the class. Remember, HSE students cannot register themselves. If you do not contact our Admissions and Records office to enroll you in the class during the four day “Add Authorization” period, you will be removed from the active waitlist and the next student on the list will be notified.
If you receive an "Add Authorization Granted” email notification, call our Admissions and Records office at 559.675.4848 so we can process your registration.
You can also check the status of your waitlisted class(es) in Self-Service by clicking Academics, then Register for Classes/View My Schedule.
What if I forget to check my email?
It is your responsibility to check your email and/or your waitlist status. The time allowed for enrollment will not be extended. Our office is not open on Saturday or Sunday, but your “Add Authorization” can expire on the weekend if the email notification was sent to you on a Wednesday or Thursday. You should check your college email or Self-Service daily to allow yourself the maximum amount of time to enroll.
What if I'm waitlisted for an online class?
If you do not receive an "Add Authorization Granted” email notification before the online class begins, you will need to email the instructor on the first day of the semester to ask if there is room in the class for you to enroll. If there is, the instructor will email you an “Add Authorization” to enroll in the class. Once you receive an “Add Authorization” contact our Admissions and Records office at 559.675.4848 so we can process your registration.
What if I’m still on the waitlist when the semester starts?
If you are on a waitlist when the semester begins, you must attend the first class meeting and/or email the instructor to see if there is space available to add the class. If you do not attend or email the instructor the first day of class, you may lose your place on the waitlist and another student may be added instead. If there is space in the class, the instructor will provide you with an “Add Authorization” to enroll in the class. Once you receive an “Add Authorization” contact our Admissions and Records office so we can enroll you in the class.
