Registration for the 2016 fall semester at Northwest Mississippi Community College is just around the corner.

Open registration and orientation for day classes for students who have not previously registered will be held on Thursday, Aug. 18 and Friday, Aug. 19 on all Northwest campuses.

Open registration for evening classes will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 16 from 4:30-7 p.m. on all three campuses.

Open registration for day classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the DeSoto and Oxford campuses, and from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the Senatobia campus. On the Senatobia campus, registration will be held in the Haraway Center.

Returning students will complete their registration online through Wednesday, Aug. 17. New students who complete online orientation and have an ACT score of 17 or higher may register online, as well.

Open registration for Northwest eLearning’s online classes Aug. 16 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. and Aug. 18-19 from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Day classes and evening classes begin Monday, Aug. 22. Late registration will begin Aug. 22 and end Aug. 26.

In an effort to reduce the price of books for students, some nursing, economics, biology and psychology courses will begin using eBooks this semester. Electronic textbooks will be available through Northwest’s CANVAS system the first day of class. The eBook can be accessed at any time after downloading it to a device, even when students have no Internet connection.

Students whose courses use eBooks will be assessed the fee for the book when they complete their registration. If students would like a hard copy of the entire textbook, there will be black and white loose-bound books available for purchase in the bookstore.

Jennifer Luna, director of Financial Aid announced that Financial Aid staff on all campuses will be available to assist students with financial aid questions during registration.

On the Senatobia campus, Financial Aid staff will be in the McLendon Center Computer Lab during registration from Aug. 16-19, but will return to their office in Yalobusha Hall, Suite 103 on Aug. 22.

As of this date, all Northwest residence halls are full, and there is a waiting list, according to the Northwest Housing Office.
