Mini-Mester C is a limited course availability registration period available to certain eligible students during the Fall and Spring semesters. Mini-Mester C classes run the second 8 weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters and are condensed, rigorous classes.

Students who wish to begin taking courses during a Mini-Mester C registration period are required to attend a mandatory, on-campus orientation and registration session in order to receive registration access to register for Mini-Mester C classes.

It is highly recommended that students who are interested in the Mini-Mester C registration period meet with an Enrollment Advisor at the One Stop PRIOR to attending their orientation. An advisor can help assist with determining if appropriate courses in the student’s major are available to the student during Mini-Mester C. There may be instances where no courses or compatible times are available during the Mini-Mester C period for a student in which case, they will need to wait until regular registration opens for the next semester when the full availability of courses in all majors are offered.

Call 770-962-7580 and press '0' to sign-up for your mandatory Mini-Mester C orientation and registration session. Space is limited, so call now to ensure your first choice is available.

Students can also sign up for their Mini-Mester C orientation and registration session by visiting the information desk at either campus Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.. At the Lawrenceville campus, the information desk is located at the front entrance of Building 100.

Before You Make Your Reservation

Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions below and information related to Mini-Mester C orientation and registration.

The Mini-Mester C orientation will last approximately one hour. After the orientation, students will be released to either stay on campus to register for their classes or meet with an enrollment advisor. Or, students may leave to register for their classes at home or another location.
Due to the mandatory nature of the session, students will NOT be permitted to sign-in for registration access if they arrive more than 15 minutes late after the orientation has started.

No. Students must attend the on-campus Mini-Mester C orientation and registration session in order to receive access to register for Mini-Mester C classes. Students who either miss attending the sessions, arrive too late for sign-in, or have schedule conflicts will not be eligible to receive registration access for Mini-Mester C classes. Students who do not attend an orientation session would need to register in the next regular registration period for the following semester.

Yes. Registration access is only given to students who attend the Mini-Mester C orientation sessions for that specific Mini-Mester C registration period. Prior campus New Student Orientation, online orientation, or Mini-Mester C orientation completion in the past does not waive the requirement to attend the Mini-Mester C session to receive access for the current Mini-Mester C registration period.
