Five steps to begin your future at Middlesex
1) Apply for admission to the college
- You may apply online or call 1-800-818-3434 to request an application.
- Once we receive your application, we will send you an admission letter and forms to return to us.
2) Schedule your College Placement Test appointment
- Schedule online or call 1-800-818-3434 to make an appointment for your placement test or return the testing exemption card. Placement testing is an important foundational piece of your education; the results determine the level of coursework you need to take in English, reading and math. We want you to do your best, and so we offer a number of ways to prepare. You may not have to take the test, or only parts of the test, if you have previously completed college-level coursework in English and math. Please note that you will need to show a picture ID at your appointment.
3) Register for classes
- Students who have been admitted to the college and are enrolling in day classes should
make an appointment to attend a Getting Started Academic Advising and Registration
Session. This can be done online or by calling 1-800-818-3434.
- Prepare for your registration session by reviewing your course placements and major program of study requirements. Explore the upcoming semester schedule of classes.
