Miami, October 12, 2009 - Miami Dade College’s (MDC) leadership is again urging students to register early for the 2010 spring term. Registration opens Monday, Oct. 12, 2009.

The surge in enrollment and budget cuts have impacted the registration process. Last fall, many students were unable to register for certain classes; some were totally unable to register, because the College was not able to add more class sections due to budget cuts.

Classes for the spring term begin on Jan. 5, 2010 – the same day as late registration. Registration will also be available on campus during the holiday break on Dec. 29 and 30, 2009.
