I’m looking to enroll in courses at MassBay and not pursue a degree. What do I need to do?
I’m unable to receive my MassBay advisor signature on my registration form, what should I do?
If you are unable to receive your advisor’s signature at this time, you may forward our office an email from your advisor’s MassBay email address that states you have permission to enroll in the course(s) indicated on your registration form and we will accept their email in lieu of their signature. Our email is email@example.com.
The course I’m interested in requires proof of a pre/co-requisite. What do I need to do?
If the course you are looking to enroll in requires proof of completion of a pre/co-requisite, please submit a registration form along with a copy of your unofficial transcript. Your unofficial transcript must state your name and the name of the school. Once received, we will forward your forms to the Advising Office for review to make sure you have met the requirements. A registrar representative will be in communication with you about your enrollment status within 1-2 business days.
If you’re a non-degree seeking student and the course(s) you’re looking to enroll in requires proof of completion of a pre/co-requisite(s), please submit a Non-Degree Registration Form which allows you to self-certify that you have completed the per/co-requisite(s). If you’re a degree seeking student and you have not submitted your transcript to MassBay, you may submit your registration form along with a copy of your unofficial transcript to our office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Your unofficial transcript must state your name and the name of the school. Once received, we will forward your forms to the Advising Office for review to make sure you have met the requirements and a representative will be in communication with you regarding your enrollment.

I requested an official transcript to be mailed. How long will it take to process my request?
Our official transcript processing directly from the Registrar’s office is delayed due to the corona virus. Official transcripts will be mailed every week as we are able to.
