The Last Step of STAR—Getting Your Class Schedule

After the academic advising portion of your STAR session, you’ll know which program you’d like to pursue and you’ll have a list of courses that are most appropriate for you in your first semester. With this information, you'll complete your registration during STAR and leave with your class schedule in hand.

Your advisor will also show you how to use schedule planner, a tool that:

  • Accepts the list of courses you selected for your first semester.
  • Searches our database to create all possible course schedule combinations of those courses.
  • Allows you to select the course schedule that best fits your life situation.
  • Automatically transfers your selection to our course registration system (course shopping cart in MyMSTC).

Finally, you’ll use MyMSTC to transfer your courses from the shopping cart and register in those courses. That’s it—you’re registered for your first semester courses. Don’t worry—the tuition bill won’t come until just before the beginning of the semester.

What if I complete academic advising early?

If you complete academic advising very early, the Mid-State course schedule for your first semester may not yet be complete. In that case, your advisor will show you how to finish the schedule planning and registration process at a later date when course scheduling becomes available.

Are there other ways to search for available classes?

A list of course schedules is also available here.

Once I've completed STAR and registered for classes, is there anything else to do before my first day of classes?

Before starting the classes you’ve registered for, your next and final step is to attend New Student Orientation.
