Since all the courses will be taught online, students can take courses offered through either campus regardless of their place of residence.

EMCC first began offering Maymester courses in 2018.

“The needs of our students are ever-changing,” Rush said at the time. “As a result, we are making it a priority to offer classes that fit the schedules of our students.”

Current students can register online or find out who their advisor is through their LEO account. Students who need assistance with registering are asked to email their advisor to schedule a telephone conference or video conference. Students will need to include their full name and date of birth in the email to help advisors access their records.

Current students may also use Student Planning, which is located under the self-service menu on LEO, to self-register. Those with general advising questions can email advising@eastms.edu

New students can apply online at www.eastms.edu. Click on the “Prospective Students” tab. Newly admitted students will be contacted by an advisor to prepare their schedules and provide JourneyEAST information.

Registration is also underway for EMCC’s summer and fall terms. For more information, visit www.eastms.edu.
