  2. To withdraw from courses contact your advisor or counselor, after communicating with either your advisor or counselor submit a withdrawal from to the Office of Admissions and Records (OAR). Electronic Forms are available at the OAR web page. Changes should be reflected on your proa portal.

Waitlist Steps:

The registration feature in the Proa Portal allows you to get on a waitlist for classes that are full provided you take the following steps:
  • A course that is full will have a “Wait” button instead of “Add”. Click on “Wait” to include this course in “My Cart” as a Waitlist Item. Your waitlist item(s) will remain with the status, “On Waitlist”, as long as the class remains full.
  • When a seat becomes available and you are next on the list for this seat, you will automatically be notified by e-mail that your status for the course in “My Cart” has changed to “Waitlist Pending”. In “My Cart”, check the box beside the course name and click on the “Next” button at the bottom of the page. The course will now appear in “My Cart” with the status “Registered”. NOTE: You will have 24 hours to add the course.
  • Email the Financial Aid Office ([email protected]) for financial aid award adjustment, if applicable, and/or to the NMC Finance Office ([email protected] or [email protected]) for financial payment and final processing.

Waitlist Tips:

  • If you decide you are no longer interested in taking the course, REMOVE yourself from the waitlist so that the next student will move up on the list.
  • Have a back-up plan in case a seat does not open up. There is no guarantee that a seat will become available.
  • If you chose to waitlist for a class, check your e-mail and “My Cart” daily. If you are notified that a seat is available, take action quickly. You will not automatically be registered once a seat becomes available. You will have 24 hours to register for the course (refer to Step 2 above) or the course will automatically be removed from “My Cart”. You are responsible for registering yourself for the course. Your advisor will not get an email and you will not automatically be registered.
  • The waitlist option will close, as will registration via the Proa Portal, one day prior to the first day of classes for the term.
