We can’t wait to see you this summer!

Think of it as a day to check off all your MAC to-do's, like:

  • Register for classes
  • Purchase books
  • Get your student ID
  • Explore campus 
  • Meet our navigators
  • Learn about resources
  • Ask questions
  • Get free MAC swag!

We have four CARDS DAYS planned at three different MAC locations.

CARDS DAY is open to any student interested in or planning to attend Mineral Area College in the Fall 2023 semester.

It's an Open House and Registration Day all in one. So, no matter where you are in the process, you are welcome to join us. We'll be ready to answer all your questions, help you with books, classes and more!

There's no need to RSVP to attend a CARDS DAY! When you arrive on campus, we will check you in, but the day is designed to let you move at your own pace. 

We'll have resources available to help you get your MAC to-do list taken care of!

The MAC Store will be open and ready to help you find the books you need for your fall classes! If you'd like to get your books that day, you can.

The MAC Store also offers online ordering! 

Yes! You can get your MAC Student ID, while you're here. Be ready to smile!

We'll have have several options for you to explore campus. You can take a self-guided tour or have a staff member show you around. If you've registered for your classes already, we can even help you find your classrooms!

Yes! We will have Navigators and Advisors available to help you register for your fall classes.

Absolutely! It's easy to apply to MAC online and we'll have staff ready to walk you through the process and answer any questions you have.

Ideally, you would attend a CARDS DAY at the location where you'll take classes, but if the timing just doesn't work for you, our staff will still be able to help you with books, registration, ID and resources at any location. You'd just miss out on meeting site-specific staff and campus tours (but we'd always love to meet you a different day!)
