Records & Registration
7 Steps to Enrollment
Become a student at Normandale Community College in just seven easy steps!
4. TAKE PLACEMENT TESTS
New students register during their Advising & Registration session.
For currently enrolled students and students who have previously attended Normandale, summer and fall registration begins mid-spring semester and spring registration begins mid-fall semester.
Students are assigned a registration time or window based on the number of credits they have earned so far.
Students can determine their registration window by logging into eServices or from the Registration Guide.
With the exception of those students who are enrolled in programs that require a counselor's written approval prior to registration, students register using eServices.
Adding Classes After the First Day
Although College policy allows students to add classes through the 5th day of the semester (or the 3rd day of the summer semester), not all courses are designed to accommodate students who miss the first or subsequent class meeting(s).
Students are advised to consult the instructor before adding a class after it has started.
Registration Credit Limit
Normandale limits the number of credits for which a student can register each semester to ensure academic success.
During fall and spring semesters, students may register for up to 18 credits.
Registration for 19 or more credits requires written approval from an academic advisor or counselor.
The maximum enrollment during the summer semester is 14 credits, with a recommendation that a student enrolls in no more than 8 credits in a session.
When determining the number of credits for which they plan to register, students should consider the rigor of their selected coursework, their history of academic success, work and family obligations, and other factors that may impact a student's academic life.
