The Registrar’s Office exists to assist students and faculty with course registration; to maintain and protect academic records; to provide official transcripts; and to aid in academic advising.
To access commonly used forms, such as transcript requests, use the links below. Users will have to print the form and either mail or fax to the Registrar's Office.
Commonly Used Forms:
Drop Add Procedure
Non-punitive schedule changes can be made for up to two weeks from the first day of classes (see Academic calendar). Tuition is refundable during this time; fees are not. (MACU catalog, p. 83) On the Student Transaction form: Print your Name ONLY. Name the course(s) to add or drop (include course number/section) and indicate ‘adding’ or ‘dropping’ (right side of form). Give adjusted credit hours for the semester at the bottom. Have your advisor sign to indicate approval for the change(s). Return the completed form to Heritage Hall (# 113 Academic Suite). There is a $15.00 change of schedule fee per transaction form.
Students who are interested in transferring courses from a NC Community College or a VA Community are encouraged to look at this table for course equivalencies. For information on the MACU transfer policy see this web page.
Registration Information and Materials
Registration materials are both posted on the website and sent to student’s Mid-Atlantic email accounts each semester.
- General Registration Materials
- FERPA Disclosure Form
- Deferred Payment Application
- Student Insurance Waiver
Each semester, during a designated period (see the Academic Calendar for early registration dates), continuing students are expected to register for the following semester. Each student must meet with his or her academic advisor before registering. The advisor will counsel the student and sign the form to approve the proposed schedule. Students in more than one professional program must meet with the advisor of each program.
Registration is not complete until final registration when all fees have been paid and all registration materials are properly completed and submitted to the Registrar’s Office. Continuing students who fail to complete early registration at the assigned time may register by final registration day specified on the Academic Calendar for the additional late registration fee. Any change in registration must be completed with the Registrar’s Office by the end of drop/add.
New students, after being notified of acceptance to MACU, will officially declare a program of study. After the declaration has been made, the student will be assigned to an advisor to work with them during the course of his or her academic career at MACU. Prior to registering for courses, the new student should complete all competency and placement testing. The test results will be forwarded to the advisor and the advisor will initiate contact with the new student to set a course schedule for the first semester.
At the beginning of each semester students either confirm the course schedule that they submitted earlier or they register for the courses they wish to take. At this time, students will also complete transactions with the Finance and Student Life offices (see Finances).
The University reserves the right to cancel any registration in specific courses for which the student is ineligible. The registration of a student who is ineligible to attend the University is subject to immediate cancellation. The University also reserves the right to cancel the registration of a student whose attendance at the University, in the opinion of the appropriate administrative officials, would not be mutually beneficial to that person and to the University.
