The Office of Enrollment Services, located directly inside the front door, is every student's first stop upon applying to MxCC. Even after applying and getting acceptance you'll visit the Office of Enrollment Services in order to register for your classes, take care of some official matters such as name or address changes, advisor or major changes, and to apply for graduation. The Office of Enrollment Services works closely with the Financial Aid Office and the Business Office to guide students through paying for college. All of our representatives in these offices are committed to ensuring that MxCC students are getting the help they need.
