Application and Registration Steps for Non-Degree Seekers
- 1. FIND A CLASS
Use the online ClassFinder to search for any course offered through Mid-State.
- 2. CONFIRM ELIGIBILITY
When looking at a specific course, read the course description to confirm that you are eligible to take the course. If any prerequisites or corequisites are listed and you're not sure if you're eligible, talk to an academic advisor at 888.575.6782.
- 3. APPLY AND REGISTER
Complete and submit the online application and registration form for non-degree-seeking students. (The $30 application fee is waived for non-degree-seeking students.)
Note: Once you have registered for your classes you will not receive a paper bill for fees owed. Check your email for this information, and use your eAccount Management system. Nursing Assistant and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) are programs that require completion of a college application.
- 4. WELCOME TO MID-STATE!
Congratulations on submitting your non-degree-seeking application and registering for your first course with Mid-State! Get in touch with a college experience specialist at 888.575.6782 to learn more about next steps, which may include any of the following, depending on your needs:

Note: If a non-degree-seeking-student later decides to pursue a credential (degree, diploma, certificate), the student will need to complete the regular application for admission again and pay the $30 application fee. The student may also need to complete the Accuplacer.
