The methods of course registration at Lincoln College-Normal vary according to the program of study and division in which the student enrolls. The traditional academic programs, the Center for Adult Learning and Accelerated Bridge to Education (ABE), and the Midwest College of Cosmetology have separate methods described in the following subsections.
Regardless of plan of study or division, if a student has an outstanding obligation to the College, a hold may be placed upon registration and the student will be unable to register for classes until that obligation is met.
Traditional Academic Program Registration
All Lincoln College-Normal students enrolled in traditional academic programs must meet with an academic advisor to discuss course choices and register for classes. Registration for summer classes and fall semester classes begins in March; registration for spring semester classes begins in October. Students should register early since class sizes are limited.
Center for Adult Learning/Accelerated Bridge to Education Registration
All students must meet with an ABE academic advisor to discuss course choices and register for classes. Each student will meet to review his/her Plan of Study and discuss any schedule conflicts, course pre-requisites or any other academic concern. Students should meet with an ABE advisor early since class sizes are limited.
Midwest College of Cosmetology Registration
Students enrolled in any program of study at the Midwest College of Cosmetology are group-registered for classes when they arrive on campus for orientation at the start of their program, and therefore do not need to meet with an academic advisor. Any student at Midwest College of Cosmetology wishing to enroll in additional courses in the Lincoln College-Normal traditional academic programs (up to 6 hours included in tuition for full-time MCC students) must meet with an academic advisor to discuss course choices and register for those courses.
