Q: How do I register for a class if I am waitlisted?

A: You must attend the first day of the class and ask the instructor for an add card or email your instructor to request an access code. Then by clicking the "Add Class with Access Code" link you can register for that class.

Note: you can now automatically be moved up on the list and/or be placed on the class roster. Simply check your Student E-mail and/or your Class Schedule on PiratesNet/connectColumbia. If you are eligible to add the class, the word "Permission" would be next to your waitlisted class.

Q: I am trying to add a class and it says "Prerequisites have not been met." What does that mean?

A: It means that the class requires you to take a different class prior to enrollment. It can also mean that you have not taken your Assessment Test. If you feel you have completed the above requirements, you can call the MJC Admissions Office at (209) 575-6853 or the Columbia College Admissions Office at (209) 588-5231, for further assistance.

Q: I am trying to add a class but it gives me the following error message: "Data record did not pass the criteria specified in the rule, your address has changed." What does that mean?

A: You have to contact the MJC Admissions Office at (209) 575-6853, or the Columbia College Admissions Office at (209) 588-5231, in order to update your address.

Note: students now have access to update that information on PiratesNet/connectColumbia, under "Update Contact Information."
