Beginning Monday, April 19, online registration will open for the Intersession, Summer and Fall 2010 terms. Online registration is open to all returning students that are in good standing with the College (no student account balance, all transcripts received, etc).
“In the past, our systems would only allow a small part of the student body to register online. Now, the vast majority of our students will be able to take advantage of this time-saving benefit,” Dr. Judy Traylor, Vice President for Student and Outreach Services, said.
While students will still have the opportunity to speak to advisors in person if they need to, everyone is now encouraged to complete registration online via Campus Connect at www.ntcc.edu. This removes the necessity of driving to campus to register for, drop and add classes.
“Registration has historically been associated with long lines and confusion. The new process allows you to manage your schedule from the comfort of your own home whenever it is most convenient for you,” Jeanni Pruitt, Director of College Connection, said. “Also, by registering online, you are able to pick your classes as soon as enrollment opens. So if you are hoping to get a certain professor or time for a class, you won’t have to wait until just before school starts.”
First-time NTCC students will also be able to register online, but only after completing a myEagle Orientation session. These will be held throughout the summer and are mandatory for all new students. While dual credit students are not currently eligible for online registration, NTCC has made many improvements to the process and they should find it easier to sign up through their dual credit advisor.
In addition to an easier registration process, NTCC has also made improvements to financial aid processing. Students should see faster turnaround time for award letters and increased communication from the financial aid office. Now is the time for students to complete the FAFSA form at www.fafsa.gov if they will need financial aid for the fall 2010 semester.
Improved online registration is just one of many improvements that NTCC hopes to make over the next months. For more information, call 903-434-8100. Students who will be attending NTCC for the first time in Fall 2010 should call 903-434-8140 to sign up for a myEagle Orientation session. Computers are available at NTCC for students who may not have access to the Internet at home.
