Early Registration

Early Registration is a process available to all students who are currently enrolled and in good academic standing. It is an opportunity for students to receive first choice of the courses that are offered the following semester. Registering early can save money and time. Early Registration for the fall semester usually occurs during the first and second week of April. Students who register early also get an opportunity to bursar early, thus avoiding long lines found during the Regular Registration period. Students who register early the fall can pay during the first and second week in July. Early Registration for the spring semester usually occurs during the first and second week of November. Students who register early for the spring semester can pay at that time or the first and second week of December.

Regular Registration

All students who failed to take advantage of Early Registration (continuing students) and those who could not (probation, first-time freshmen, transfers, re-admits), will receive a notice indicating the date and time they may register. If he/she does not receive notice indicating the registration date and time:

  1. Continuing Students should contact the Registrar’s Office, 1637 Bedford Avenue, Room S-107, 718-270-6040 (Tel) or mecregistrar@mec.cuny.edu.

  2. New, Transfer and Readmitted Students should contact the Admissions Office, 1637 Bedford Avenue, 718-270-6024 (Tel) or Admissions@mec.cuny.edu.

Late Registration

The Late Registration period begins the first day of classes. During this time, a student can either register for courses or make changes to courses previously selected. Late Registration is the most critical period due to cancellations, and closed courses. In addition, there is also an additional fee of $25.00 for registering late during this period.

Program Change Period

There is no fee charged to students who wish to make changes in their early registered schedule. However, students who wish to make changes during late Registration period will incur an $18.00 fee.

Refunds

The refund periods are extremely important because of the timetable for refunding tuition. If a student wishes to receive a 100% refund, he/she must drop from all courses, either in person or via before the first day of classes. A complete listing of all refund percentages and the applicable dates are outlined in the Academic Calendar. For additional information, please refer to the section of the catalog pertaining to Tuition, Fees and Refunds.

Tuition Payment Policy

You are legally bound to pay for courses once you are registered. If you decide not to attend the College, you are legally obligated to cancel your registration by “Officially Withdrawing” from courses prior to the first day of classes. If not, you will be billed and if you fail to pay your tuition, your credit may be adversely affected.
