How to Add a Class

To add a class to your schedule during Registration from the MJC homepage, select  and log into PiratesNet. Next, select current students and under the Registration heading select Register For Classes / Build Class Schedule. You will need to have your class section number ready. *Note: The section number is located on the Class Search page.

In order to add a class that has already begun, you must obtain an access code from the instructor and then add the class online by using the access code. After you have added a class to your schedule, fees are immediately due and can be paid on PiratesNet, by mail, or at the Business Services Office on the East campus. Questions regarding fees please contact the Business Services Office at (209) 575-6828.

To add an online class that you are not currently on the waitlist for, you will need to log into PiratesNet, select Current Students and then click on Electronic Add Card Request (for Online Classes). Complete the request form and select submit. The request will be sent to the instructor and they will reply by email letting you know if your request was approved. The email approval from the instructor is now your access to add. You may then add a class online.

To add a short-term class, you may add online through PiratesNet or in person on or after your registration date and time until the day before the class starts. To add a class after it starts you will need to attend the next class meeting and obtain an access code from the Instructor. 

To add yourself to the waitlist if the class is full, you can go online to PiratesNet. If you need help you can contact Enrollment Services at 209-575-6853.

*Note:  If you get the message "waitlist full" it means the maximum amount of students that can add to waitlist has been reached. You will need to attend the first class meeting and request an add card even if you are not on the waitlist. Please be aware that your chances of getting an add card are better if you are on the waitlist.

6. The last column is asking for the access/add code the instructor gave you.
