Registering for Classes

Before registering make sure you understand and follow the steps in Preparing for Registration.

Registration Process

See below for information about the process to follow depending on your student classification.

  1. New on-campus students
  2. New distance students (on-line students)
  3. Current students; on-campus and distance; undergraduate and graduate
  4. Former students

1. New On-Campus Students

New on-campus students register for their initial term classes by making an appointment with staff in NTC One Stop Services.  Call 218-333-6600 to schedule an appointment.

2. New On-LINE DISTANCE Students

New distance students, admitted through Distance Minnesota will be able to register for online courses using e-Services inside myNTC. Work with your assigned academic advisor for proper course placement.

3. Current Students; On-Campus and Distance

Students register using e-Services, available through myNTC.  Dates and times to register for each term are assigned to each student based on total earned credits.  Students should plan to meet with their advisor prior to their assigned registration time to determine course selection, degree completion progress, and to obtain a registration access code, if required.  Registration access codes are required for all on-campus degree seeking students.

4. FORMER Students

Former students (those who were previously at NTC and have taken a leave of absence) will need to contact NTC One Stop Services to reactive their account.  Upon reactivation, students can register using e-Services provided they left the college in good standing and don’t have any registration holds.
