The registration process for online classes was the same as ordinary in-person classes: look up the class code, speak to your adviser, and enter it into your account/database. The difference is that there is very little peer to peer or teacher/student interaction, aside from the weekly discussions (you only had to reply to one-two people though) or if you needed to email the professor any questions/concerns about the class. The workload was moderate, with a smaller amount of tests/quizzes--close deadlines and quite frequent, but all the note taking/projects and studying was self-paced. If you have more than 15 hours, then having 1 or two online classes can get a little overwhelming, especially if you have a job or extracurricular activities outside of class hours.
Since MGCCC was a 2-year college, I was a part of the Science Preparatory program, which contained all of the classes that I needed to transfer to a 4-year, such as Biology, Microbiology, Chemistry, etc. However, there were several elective classes that I needed to take, such as Public Speaking and Art Appreciation. Because band took up most of my time as well, I was unable to take two of my required classes. Although I enjoyed some of the pre-requisite classes, I feel that I would have much more accomplished if I didn't need to take them. The workload was consistent, even though some teachers forgot to input grades or assignments onto the online database, which delayed some of out assignments, and hang everyone cram. The LRC was a great place to study; it had tutors for almost every subject, plenty of computers to work from, and stocked library upstairs; my favorite was at the Jefferson Davis Campus. There was work-study available, but it was more geared towards students who had a car, or carpooled with another student of the same/nearby job. Those jobs, were either the fast-food chains, or the Wal-Marts nearby.
I'd like to see more architecture classes as I would in any college; however, the teachers are fantastic. The student-to-teacher ratio makes tutoring and office hours rather flexible, while the professors have courses rigorous enough to prepare one for a four-year university. I would not recommend this college if you are the type of student who doesn't attend class daily. The attendance policy is solid.
