Online registration is underway for the upcoming summer and fall 2021 academic terms at Middle Tennessee State University.
Priority registration runs through Friday, April 16. Students can access the MTSU Registration Guide at http://mtsu.edu/registration/registration-guide.php, then should contact and meet their advisers either online, email or phone and obtain the classes they need.
Tyler Henson, director of the MT One Stop, recommends students make sure they are taking classes that are in their degree program to avoid any issues with financial or graduation. See also at www.mtsu.edu/cpos.
“Make good choices,” Henson said. “And make it count when you meet your academic adviser and plan your schedule for each semester. You’ll be glad you did. Taking classes outside of your program of study could impact financial aid awards drastically.”
This summer, because of ongoing public health precautions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be a mixture of on-campus and online courses offered. However, MTSU plans to get back to a more “normal” schedule in the fall semester.
“While we always offer a number of online courses, we are getting back to a majority of our classes being offered on-campus this fall,” Henson said. “Students will find we have options for all students, but we’re looking to return to a schedule that looks more like it did pre-pandemic.”Henson said priority registration for summer and fall is crucial for currently enrolled students because they can register before thousands of incoming freshmen and transfer students.
“Those who wait risk losing their seats as early as the Monday after priority registration, when the new students can register for summer courses,” he added, “so it’s in their best interest to register at their assigned time and not wait until August or May to sign up for fall classes.”
MTSU offers more than 300 combined undergraduate and graduate programs.
