Students will be able to view their Program Evaluation in MMC Connect, under the “Academic Planning” section. A program evaluation is an advisement tool that a student can use in planning his/her academic program. The program evaluation will show all completed courses taken at MMC, transfer courses, in-progress, registered, and pre-registered courses, and matches them against the requirements for a particular degree program. The EVAL is an internal document for advising purposes only. It is not a contract, official notification of graduation, or a substitute for a transcript. The program evaluation (EVAL) will also provide a program summary of a student’s total credits earned and GPA, and will list all the degree requirements (both complete and incomplete). Specifically, the program evaluation will produce a customized report that shows whether or not a student has:
- Fulfilled the requirements - (Completed) - highlighted in Green
- Requirements pending because the student is currently enrolled or pre-registered in the course(s) needed - ( Pending completion of unfinished activity) - highlighted in Orange
- Requirements partially completed - (In Progress) - highlighted in Blue
- The course(s) still need to be taken (e.g.“1 Course Needed”)*
*Although 1 course may be needed - check the total number of credits required
- Not started on taking the requirement(s) - (Not Started) - highlighted in Red
The student should review the program evaluation with the student’s academic advisor. Courses that are “Not Started” or listed as “Course Needed”, are courses the student still needs to take. The student and/or advisor can use the program evaluation(EVAL) as an academic planning tool to:
- Verify degree program or concentration
- Monitor a student’s progress towards completing a degree
- Map out course choices for the upcoming registration and future coursework
- Determine if a course substitution is needed
- Discover external credits (transfer credit, advanced placement, etc) pending or missing, and recommend that the student take the necessary steps to ensure that the Registrar’s Office obtains these documents
- Determine a student’s last term at MMC or anticipated date of completion
- Explore other degree programs at MMC / “What-If” the student changes his/her program of study

Students should check with their major department or Office of Academic Advisement to determine when the Advisement Planning Worksheet(opens in a new tab) and Scheduling Grid(opens in a new tab) will be available to students. When the forms are available, students should print out a copy of the forms and use it to prepare for their advisement appointment, along with the printout of their program evaluation.
Students will be allowed to register on specific dates determined by the number of credits they have completed to date. Students must meet with their faculty advisor on the scheduled advisement day(s) prior to registration. Once a prescribed set of courses has been determined, academic advisors will release (or “HBA” - have been advised) the student for registration. If the student has not been released or does not have an HBA clearance, the student will not be permitted to register online. More details about registration dates and times can be found on the “Dates and Deadlines” tab on our Registration Information(opens in a new tab) webpage.
If a student’s account has a hold/restriction, it must be cleared before the student is allowed to register. Restrictions can be viewed through MMC Connect. Restrictions can only be lifted by the Office(s) that assigned them. Once lifted, the student may follow the process(es) below for registration. Go to the Online Registration Manual to view a complete listing of restriction codes.
Online registration in MMC Connect is open to continuing degree-seeking and non-matriculated students. In order to take advantage of online registration, students must have an active MMC e-mail account and have accessed MMC Connect. The Information Technology department can service any student who has not activated their email accounts. Note - students (continuing, non-degree, non-matriculated) who do not have the prerequisite(s) for a class will not be able to register for those specific classes online. Students will need to submit an approved prerequisite waiver form. Go to “Pre-req Waiver” under Planning and Scheduling Forms. If the form is approved, a student service representative or registrar staff will process the registration into the class.
Students must meet with their faculty advisor on the scheduled Advisement Day(s) to choose a set of courses for the upcoming semester. Faculty advisors are responsible for releasing students for registration. If a student has not been advised (“HBA”), MMC Connect will not allow him/her to register online. It is also highly recommended that alternate courses be chosen during advisement since classes have been known to close quickly. Students who are in HEOP, Academic Access, or on an International (F-1 or similar) visa must see their program directors for registration approval.
Non-degree students who are planning to become MMC degree-seeking students will be required to meet with an academic advisor in the Office of Academic Advisement in the Center for Student Services to review their course selections before registering online. If you fall into this category, you will see an NDG (non-degree) restriction on MMC Connect and you can also view the name of your academic advisor, who will release you for registration.
Pre/co-requisite requirements still need to be met for Non-degree students. Students requiring special permission will need to supply CSS with the pre/co-requisite waiver form approved by the faculty advisor/division chair.
All potential problems that could delay online registration should be resolved before attempting to register online. Students should clear any holds/restrictions on their accounts and ensure that they have all necessary prerequisites completed. Students will not be allowed to register for courses that meet at the same time, courses that require permission from the instructor for entry, or courses for which the appropriate pre-requisites have not been completed.
Students are allowed to take up to 18 credits per semester provided they have at least a 3.0 grade point average. MMC Connect will not allow a student to take over 17 credits if they have less than a 3.0. In this case, students must see Academic Advisement for permission to overload.
If a course section is open to only certain class levels (e.g. juniors, seniors), students have to be at the required class level at the time of registration – not the class level upon completion of the current semester and/or completion of future summer or January session classes.
Make sure all pre-requisites have been met. If you are deficient in any pre-requisite(s), the system will not allow you to register for the class. Consult your college catalog for course/pre-requisite information.
If students wish to register for classes without the pre/co-requisites, they will not be able to register online. Students must submit a prerequisite/restriction waiver form. The prerequisite waiver form(opens in a new tab) is available on the Office of Academic Advisement Form’s page under “Planning and Scheduling Forms.” We recommend students submit their prerequisite/restriction waiver form days before their registration time begins. Registrar staff will process the pre/co-requisite waiver form prior to the student’s registration timeslot. If the registration was successful, students will see their class on MMC Connect. If there are any issues (e.g. class section is closed, waitlist is full, accounts hold, class conflict, etc.) the Registrar will send the student an email notification. (*Note: An approved prerequisite waiver does not guarantee a seat in the class. If the class is closed, students can opt to be added to the waitlist if available or find an alternate class.
If the course requires a co-requisite, it is recommended that you add the co-requisite class first on MMCConnect.
Restriction for Advanced Interdisciplinary Perspectives (AIPs) for Fall 2021 CoursesStudents must have 39 credits completed.* The 39 credits may include your Spring 2021 and pre-registered Summer 2021 credits - but not other pre-registered credits for Fall 2021. Students will receive the following alert message in Express Registration if they do not have the required number of credits: “Must complete 39 credits before the start of the Fall term”.

General Frequently Asked Questions
Students may add and/or drop courses online before the start of the term. After that date, all program changes must be made in person at the Center for Student Services. See the registration and deadlines tab for specific dates.
During the official program change period (generally the first week in a major semester and shorter during the January and Summer intersession) a $30 fee will be charged every time a student makes a change to his/her schedule. The fee is charged per transaction, not per course added or dropped. Students must make all program changes within the specified time before incurring academic or financial penalties. Once the program change period ends, classes may not be added to a student’s schedule.
To add/drop a course they must fill out a Program Change form (available at the Center for Student Services). The student will indicate which courses are to be added or dropped from their schedule. The form must be filled out in its entirety with all appropriate fields filled out. Degree students must have the form approved and signed by their advisor. Once submitted, the change will be processed immediately and the student will receive a new comprehensive statement and receipt.
Students who add or drop classes that result in a change in status, (i.e. full-time to part-time) will be responsible for all financial liabilities pertaining to such a change.
Your opportunity to register online begins when your priority registration date/time starts and will not end until the day before the start of term. You can register manually in the CSS, after your priority registration date/time begins and until the end of the program change period, if your registration form has been approved by your faculty/academic advisor, if you have been cleared of all holds, and if you have been advised (HBA) by your faculty advisor. If you are studying abroad, you can still register online. You will need to contact your advisor for approval(HBA) and then add your courses via MMC Connect. Contact an academic counselor in the Office of Academic Advisement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-517-0568, if you have questions and/or problems while you are trying to register if you are abroad.
Note: You will not be able to register before your registration priority date/time slot.
The typical MMC student enrolls for 5 classes or approximately 15 credits per semester. Students are allowed to take up to 18 credits provided if they have an overall gpa of 3.00 or above. Students who would like to register over and above the 18 credits maximum, will need to file a Request for Course Overload in the Office of Academic Advisement. If the overload request is approved, the student must bring the overload request form, along with a program change (PC) form to add the course(s). manually in the CSS.
If you are receiving financial aid and are planning on enrolling in less than 12 credits, you should consult with a financial aid counselor. Most financial aid awards are closely tied to your status as a full-time (12 credits or more) student.
Student status refers to the course load (in terms of credits) a student is taking during a given semester:
- Less than half time: 0–5 credits
- Half time: 6–8 credits
- 3/4 time: 9–11 credits
- Full time: 12 credits or above
- Overload* - 16 credits or above
*Overload: overload credits may result in additional tuition charges
Non-matriculating or non-degree students may register online through MMCConnect as long as the students have set up their network password and ID through the Office of Information Technology (4th Floor, Carson Hall). Non-matriculating or non-degree students register in the same manner as a degree-seeking student. They will be given a priority registration date/time. Non-matriculating or non-degree students will also need to be given clearance for registration (HBA), clear all holds/restrictions, and have fulfilled the prerequisites for each course. If a student is seeking a prerequisite waiver, then the student must file a prerequisite waiver form. The waiver needs to be approved by the course instructor, program chair, or dept/division chair. The student may register manually provided that the student has an approved-registration agreement form and/or prerequisite waiver form.
Once the Program Change period ends, students may no longer add courses into their schedules. They may, however, continue to drop courses but with academic and financial liabilities. Students wishing to drop a course or courses after the program change period has ended must complete a Course Withdrawal (CW) Form (Available at the Center for Student Services). On this form, the student may indicate which courses he/she would like to withdraw from. According to specific time intervals (indicated in the appropriate semester’s course bulletin), a student will receive either a grade of “W” or “WF” at the time of withdrawal.
A “W” grade is shown on the student’s transcript but does not affect his or her cumulative grade point average. A “WF” grade is shown on the student’s transcript and is tabulated into the grade point average as an “F.” The student is financially liable for the full cost of the dropped course and any fees.
The student must complete the Course Withdrawal form in its entirety and have an advisor approve the withdrawal. The change will be processed immediately and a new registration statement and receipt will be issued to the student.
In order to withdraw completely from Marymount, a student must complete a Withdrawal Form (Available in the Office of Academic Advisement). This form is to be used only when withdrawing completely from the school. The student must fill out the form completely with their class schedule. The date the withdrawal is submitted determines whether or not the College will recalculate the student’s tuition, fees, and financial aid. The date the withdrawal is submitted also determines whether or not the student will be subject to academic penalty; that is receive grades of “W” or “WF.” If the withdrawal date precedes the official deadline for withdrawals, the student will receive grades of “W.” If the withdrawal date succeeds the official deadline, the student will receive grades of “WF.” Official deadlines for withdrawal are noted in the appropriate term’s course bulletin. An advisor in the Academic Advisement office must approve the Withdrawal Form
Registration and Records FAQ’s
Students may request an education verification letter either in person, by mail, or by telephone by completing an Enrollment/Degree Verification Request Form. The education or enrollment verification will include the student’s name, enrollment status, and anticipated graduation date. Students requesting proof of enrollment for a term that has not yet commenced can receive proof of pre-registration letter only.
Students or student loan servicer may also contact the National Student Loan Clearinghouse for verification of education and degree. The NSLC’s Enrollment Verify service is Web-based system that provides instant enrollment verifications for student service providers.
If a student has his or her name legally changed, they must fill out an Official Change of Name Form. Students must also show the original documentation stating their official change of name. A passport or other form of state-issued identification is not acceptable.
All of the following must accompany each request:
- Copy of birth certificate
- Copy of certificate of naturalization (if applicable)
- Legal notice of name change (esp. from published newspaper)
- Copy of marriage certificate or divorce decree (if applicable)
Students who must interrupt their studies for a compelling reason (for example, sustained illness, personal or financial matters that impede their ability to continue study) may be allowed to leave school for a stated period, not to exceed one year or two consecutive semesters. To do so, and thereby, retain one’s matriculated status, a student May request to maintain matriculation by completing a Maintenance of Matriculation Application Form.
To qualify for maintenance of matriculation, students must satisfy the following conditions:
- Must be in good academic standing (that is, the student’s cumulative GPA must be at least 2.0)
- Must not have had any disciplinary action taken against them, while in attendance at MMC
- Should not be planning on matriculating at another college/institution while maintaining matriculation at MMC.
Such application must be submitted prior to the beginning of the given semester for which the Maintenance of Matriculation is sought. Students can check on MMC Connect to see if their request for maintenance of matriculation have been approved. The maintenance of matriculation code, “REG 001” will be listed under “Academic History”. Students will be notified via MMC email, if their application has been rejected.
International students, who must attend classes to maintain their F-1 Visa status, are not eligible for Maintenance of Matriculation. They should consult the Director of International Recruitment in the Office of Admissions for additional information.
Degree-Seeking students wishing to take courses elsewhere must complete a Permission to Take Courses at Another Institution form. Students must indicate which courses they will be taking and have them approved for the transfer of credit by an academic advisor or chair of the sponsoring department. A copy of the form must be left with the Center for Student Services and one copy should be brought to the institution where the student will be attending as his or her official permit. Students must, after completing their coursework, have an official transcript sent to MMC so that credits may be transferred. Student must received a minimum grade of C- for transfer.
Grade reports are available online via MMC Connect. If a student desires a printed grade report for themselves or to be sent to employers, they must complete a Grade Report Request Form. Printed grade reports are only available for the current semester and will be withheld if the student has any restrictions assigned to his/her account. Grades cannot be faxed or sent by any other electronic means.
You should review your program evaluation in MMC Connect. Under “Program Summary”, you will see your status. If your PROGRAM SUMMARY states “(In Progress)” - this means you are missing requirement(s). When you meet with your advisor on Advisement Day, you should review your program evaluation together. Since the program evaluation shows what requirements are outstanding, you can map out your registration for the subsequent term(s). If your program summary states “(Pending (Anticipated complete))” - this means you are taking all your requirements in your last semester. Upon successful completion of all your classes, you will graduate on one of MMC’s three (3) conferral dates (June 01, September 01, or February 01).
If you expect to graduate at the end of the term or within the next two terms, you should file for graduation. You can do this do by clicking on “Application for Graduation” under Academic Planning in MMC Connect.
You will be notified periodically via MMC email by the Office of the Registrar, to check your Program Summary status. A Program Summary stating “In Progress”, will alert you that outstanding issues need to be resolved before you can graduate and participate in commencement.
MMC graduates students during three different periods throughout the academic year:
- September 1 (all requirements must be completed by August)
- February 1 (all requirements must be completed by January)
- June 1 (all requirements must be completed by May)
While there are three official graduation dates throughout the year, there is only one commencement ceremony, which takes place in May after the close of the spring semester. September, February, and June graduates are all eligible for participation in the exercises.
MMC offers three different categories of graduation honors based on a student’s cumulative GPA upon completion of all graduation requirements:
- a. 3.500 - 3.699: Cum Laude
- b. 3.700 - 3.899: Magna Cum Laude
- c. 3.900 - 4.000: Summa Cum Laude
Students are only eligible for honors if they have completed 60 or more residency credits at MMC. These credits cannot include independent studies, Pass/Fail courses, or internships. Honors are listed on a student’s diploma and final transcript.
Students who are within six (6) credits of fulfilling their graduation requirements may walk in the commencement exercises under the following conditions:
- The student has registered for their required coursework in either the Summer I or II term to ensure graduation by September 1
- The student has paid for their Summer I or II coursework in full
- The student has completed a “Special Request for Permission to Participate in Commencement Ceremony(opens in a new tab)” application and has submitted the form to the Center for Student Services.
Students must understand that walking in the ceremony does not mean that they have graduated. Transcripts, diplomas, and other pertinent documents will not include graduation date and degree earned until after successful completion of their requirements.
In addition, September candidates participating(walking) in May’s commencement must be aware that they will not have their honors or awards announced at graduation. Honors will be listed on their diplomas or transcripts upon completion.
Diplomas are sent to print following the official graduation date (whether it be September, February, or June 1) and generally take two months to complete. Once diplomas arrive at MMC they are checked for accuracy and are signed by the President and Dean of the College. Diplomas are then sent by mail to the address indicated on the Graduation Application or held for pick-up at the student’s request.
If a student has any restriction(s) on his/her account, their diploma will be held until all restrictions have been cleared. Once the student’s record is cleared, the diploma will be sent in the mail or the student may pick it up. In order to pick up a diploma, a student must show a valid photo ID.
GPA (Grade Point Average) is the numeric indicator of how a student has performed academically each semester. Each course grade received in a course is awarded Quality Points (i.e. grade of A = 4.00 quality points), which are used to calculate an “average” of the grades in a given semester. The semester GPA only takes into account the grades for courses taken in that particular semester. The “Cum” or cumulative GPA (also called cumulative index) takes into account the student’s performance overall their semesters here in the college. Transfer credits are not computed in the GPA.
If a student would like to compute their GPA, they can use the handy online GPA calculator(opens in a new tab). Below is an example:
Each grade received in a course is worth a certain number of quality points and the GPA and cumulative index are calculated using the total quality points earned divided by the number of credits earned. Here is an example of one semester’s GPA for Jane Q. Student:
Grades Quality Points x credits = total quality points
42 (total quality points)/12.00 (credits) = 3.500
To figure out Jane’s cumulative index, not just one’s semester’s GPA, she would need to include the quality points for the total number of courses taken at MMC (excluding a grade of W or P) and divide by the number of credits.
Quality points are shown on grade reports and transcripts.
According to FERPA, your grades cannot be released to your parent(s) or third party without your written consent. Students who wish to authorize family members or other persons in obtaining their academic information must gain access via Parent Connect (for more information, students can download the Parent Connect Instruction Form.
