Academic Engagement Policy

CSCU’s Policy on Grading, Notations, and Academic Engagement requires colleges to formally drop students who do NOT begin participation in each class by a certain date each term. You must begin to actively engage in your classes, or you will be dropped.

Faculty will take note of students that have not met the requirements for academic engagement. The Registrar’s office will drop students from courses in which they have not clearly demonstrated academic engagement as previously defined.

Academic engagement has a direct impact on both financial Aid and veterans’ benefits, as well as registering for future terms.  Therefore, if you receive either of these funding sources it is imperative you are academically engaged in ALL your courses.

Questions about this policy may be directed to your instructor, the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs Office, or to the Registrar’s Office.  You may also view this quick video to understand academic engagement  or review the policy document.

The following does not count as academic engagement or active participation:

  • Logging into an online class without active participation; or
  • Participating in academic counseling or advising.

Credit/No Credit Policy

See the Grade Conversion Policy for more information on the CR/CRT/NCE grade options. Students are encouraged to speak with their advisor and the Financial Aid office prior to selecting the Grade Conversion Option.

To meet with an advisor:

New students:  You should have received an email from the Admissions Office with your placement.  Please view the New Student Orientation page for more information.

Registering for Classes

There are four academic registration periods: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
Fall and Spring: General fund courses run for 16 weeks in a semester format. Credit extension courses run for eight weeks in two blocks: Session I during the first eight weeks of the semester and Session II runs the second eight weeks of the semester. There is also a 12-week accelerated session offered during both the fall and spring.

Winter: Accelerated credit extension courses run for three weeks in between the fall and spring semesters.

Summer: Accelerated credit extension courses run for three, six and eight weeks with start dates in May, June and July.

Registration times vary depending on the student and the semester. For a detailed schedule, please refer to the academic calendar.

New students can register for classes once they have attended New Student Orientation. Transfer students are not required to meet with an advisor for program and/or course selection but may schedule a meeting by calling Advising and Counseling Services at 860-512-3320. Students interested in transferring credits to MCC should have their prior college transcript evaluated in the Admissions office before meeting with an advisor. Please bring the preliminary evaluation with you to your advising meeting.

Students who are not pursuing a degree or certificate at MCC, plan to register for 11 credits or fewer, have an assessment test exemption, and/or meet all the requirements for testing and immunizations can register online or in person.

Add/Drop

Add/drop can be done online through myCommNet, normally through the first week of classes for the full semester course.  For accelerated classes that meet less than the full 15 week semester, add/drop ends before the classes begin. You can read more about the withdrawal policy on the withdrawal/refund page.

Transcripts

Information for requesting college transcripts can be found on the Transcript Request page.
