WEST WINDSOR – To better accommodate students who have suffered hardships as the result of Hurricane Sandy, Mercer County Community College will offer on-site registration services on Wednesday, Dec. 26, at the West Windsor campus for those who have been unable to sign up for Spring 2013 classes.
“As a community college, we share in the challenges of the residents we serve, and that includes some of the difficulties brought on by Hurricane Sandy,” said Dr. Patricia Donohue, president of MCCC. “If opening for an extra day can make a real difference in student success and helping them achieve their academic goals, we are more than happy to put forth that extra effort.”
While the focus will be on registering students for Spring 2013 classes, Dec. 26 also marks the first day of on-site Winter Session courses. Winter Session, which features accelerated, intensive classes over a three-week period, run through Jan. 18. They have proven to be particularly popular among visiting students from other colleges or students needing to make up a class during Winter Break. Registration for Winter Session classes is currently under way, and students will also be able to register Dec. 26, subject to available space and a late registration fee.
MCCC offices are normally closed the last week of the year for Winter Break, but this year students still needing to register for Spring Semester will be able to do so on Dec. 26 at the West Windsor campus from 8:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. Registration, advising, and the Bursar’s Office will all be open. Registration will resume during regular business hours Jan. 2, with Spring Semester beginning Jan. 22.
MCCC also offers assistance with financial aid, academic counseling, tutoring, and career services. For more information, visit www.mccc.edu and click on Student Services.
