PARK HILLS, Mo. – The days on the calendar are winding down that lead up to the beginning of spring semester at Mineral Area College.

“Spring classes start January 17 and, even though that seems like a long way off, registration started October 24 for currently enrolled sophomores and October 26 for currently enrolled freshmen and opened to the public October 31,” Registrar Pam Reeder said. “Before we know it, we’ll be registering students in March for summer classes.”

Reeder said many potential students will be visiting MAC’s website,, to apply for admission, check out the registration guide, view course offerings, register for classes, and reserve text books.

“Each year, we try to expand the information available on our website and MyMAC, the student portal; both are great resources where students and the public can find answers to questions regarding classes, financial aid, and the college in general,” she said.

Spring semester begins Jan. 17 and ends May 12. The eight-week summer semester begins June 5 and ends July 31. MAC also offers 8-week classes in the spring, and 4- week and 6-week classes in the summer. Many classes are offered evenings, online, by telecourse, interactive television, and at MAC’s four outreach centers.

“Personal schedules are as varied as the classes we offer, so we strive to meet a variety of needs when we think about scheduling classes,” Dean of Students Jean Merrill-Doss said. “Classes are offered to meet the early-morning needs of students who work in the afternoon, and the after-five needs of students who work during the day. Some classes even meet on Saturday mornings and a weekend format.”

First-time students can apply online at or contact the Admissions Office at (573) 518-2133 for application information. Once admitted, students will be assigned an advisor with whom they can schedule an appointment to discuss degree and course options.

Appointments are available Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. - 4 a.m. and Monday and Wednesday evenings by calling (573) 431-4593. All students are encouraged to meet with an advisor to stay on track to graduate.
