Important: All enrollment transactions take place online. You may enroll in any class with space available until the evening before the second class meeting if the class is less than 90% full. Beginning the day of the second class meeting, you must have an Instructor Authorization Code for each class you wish to enroll in, even if the class has space available. Exceptions: (1) The enrollment deadline for online, hybrid, or Arranged Hours classes is the Sunday evening prior to the week the course begins; (2) for classes meeting once per week and courses with a lab, you may enroll until 10 p.m. the night before the first class meeting. If the class is full, you will need an Instructor Authorization Code.

Please Note: All enrollment takes place on the web via Corsair Connect. If a class is closed and the term has not started, please keep trying, as it will re-open if space becomes available. More information about the enrollment process.


All fees are specific for Fall 2021. See smc.edu/fees for the most current information.

If you qualify for the SMC Promise Program, you are exempt from paying enrollment, Student Benefits, Health Services, Student Representation, and A.S. Resource fees. See smc.edu/freetuition for details.

If you are taking only noncredit courses (designated by section numbers of 7000 or above), you are not required to pay the Health Services fee or A.S. Resource fee. However, you are required to pay the Student Representation fee, or you may opt out of it through Corsair Connect (go to smc.edu/cc, click on “Enrollment,” select the relevant term/semester, then click on “Fee Assessment”).
