  • Please submit a First-Choice Course and also provide a Second-Choice option, in case a course is unavailable.
  • My Turn Students, auditing classes, cannot register for the following courses: Culinary Arts, Computer Science (Math), English 1200, English 2400, Math, Nursing, Tourism
  • Note: Classes with prerequisites, and requests to repeat a class,will require departmental approval.
    If you have already met prerequisites, please note the Semester/Year that you took the course. If you wish to repeat a class please note the last time the class was taken.
  • Please keep in mind that matriculated students are the priority and are registered before MY Turn students can be registered in open classes.
  • Class Format: The mode of instruction will include online, in-person, and hybrid (hybrid combines traditional, face-to-face “seat time” with some online learning activities). Be cognizant of the class format when choosing courses.
  • Requirement for in-person/hybrid courses: Students interested in taking in-person/hybrid courses are required to be fully vaccinated.
  • Current Student Announcement
    Proof of Residency needs to be updated yearly. Please contact the My Turn Office if you have not updated proof of residency or are unsure of your documentation status.
  • New and Current Student Matriculation Information
    As of fall 2020, new and current My Turn students will only be allowed to audit courses and not receive college credits.

    My Turn students who choose to matriculate will no longer be a part of the My Turn program and will be able to apply for financial aid.

    Current matriculated My Turn students are part of a select cohort who will continue to have their tuition and fees waived and receive credits for the courses they are enrolled in through 2024.
