Step 3

Speak with an advisor

 

Speak with an advisor in the Student Service Center to make sure you’ve taken all the pre-requisites for the classes you wish to take. Call 269-782-1499 or visit the Student Service Center on either campus.

Step 4

SMC does not require the Michigan Uniform Guest Student Application, but your home school might. Speak with your home school advisor to find out if you need it.
