Online and Hybrid Courses Orientation

Students in online classes are responsible for balancing their time around the assignments and requirements of the class, for meeting deadlines announced by the instructor and possibly attending an on campus final examination. To see if an online course is right for you and the way you study, first watch this short video, then review Is an Online Course Right For You?

Hybrid courses will require attendance on campus for about 50% of the time and about 50% online. Be aware that an Online or a Hybrid course may require more work rather than less than a traditional course.

Most Online and Hybrid courses use Campus Cruiser, except for some Math courses where you will be told how to access the course by Math Faculty. 

Using Campus Cruiser

If you are a first-time user of CampusCruiser OR are having a problem with access, please read the following sections: 

Campus Cruiser log-in ID and password are mailed to your home address on registeration at MCC for the first time. Students can also look for their Campus Cruiser log-in ID on a current schedule or bill.  If you do not have your Campus Cruiser log-in ID or password you must go to the Registrar's Office in Chamber's Hall with your MCC student ID card. You may call the Registrar's office at 732-548-6000 for hours of operation. DUE TO FERPA REGULATIONS NO PASSWORDS OR LOG-INS WILL BE GIVEN ON THE PHONE.
