Online registration for most classes closes three days before a class begins, but you may register by phone up until the day that class begins provided space is available. Registration for some classes closes earlier. The registration cutoff date is found in course details on the online registration page.
We encourage you to register as early as possible. We determine if we have sufficient enrollment to run class about one week in advance.
If you’re registering for a course and it is full, you can request to be placed on the waiting list. If space opens up in the class, we will contact the first person on the waiting list by email. You will have 24 hours to register (preferably online) before we move to the next person on the list. You cannot be placed on a waiting list if you don’t provide an email address.
Full payment must accompany your registration. Payment may be made by check, money order, cash, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover.
Checks returned to the College for insufficient funds will result in a $25 charge.
Can a third party (employer, workforce agency) pay my fees?
Yes. A third party can pay your course fees directly at the time of registration, or we can bill them provided we receive an authorization for payment.
Authorizations must contain the following information:
The class(es) you're taking
The total fee authorized for that registration
The address to which we can send an invoice
Authorizations can be emailed to email@example.com or delivered in person. Authorizations must be accompanied by your complete registration information (your name, address, phone, email).
Participation in Continuing Education classes result in CEU award, but not college credit. Because participation does not result in college credit award, you may not use financial aid for Continuing Education classes. Minneapolis College does not currently offer scholarships for Continuing Education classes.

Our refund policy: If you need to cancel your registration and do so at least three full business days before the class starts, you will receive a full refund. No refunds will be granted for cancellations requested fewer than three full business days before a class starts.
Some classes meet at our community partners’ sites, in which case those locations will be noted in the class description and on your confirmation. You can find details about those locations on our partners' websites:
