Using MyCentral to Search for Classes

When is the next semester's course schedule available?

The summer semester schedule is available online in mid-December and the fall semester schedule is available in February. Enrollment for both summer and fall semesters takes place during March and April. The spring semester schedule is available online in mid-September and enrollment for spring semester takes place in October and November.

Where can the next semester's course offerings be found?

  • Public Access Site (does not require student log in): From any UCM website, click on the "Academics" link near the top of the page.  Choose “Schedule of Courses” from the Related Links list.  Pick the semester you wish to search in. This site does not provide summary data and can be more difficult to view.

  • MyCentral (for current students): Go to MyCentral and login.  Choose the “Student Services/Student Home ” tab, “UCM Registration”, and “Look-Up Classes to Add.”

  • Schedule Planner (for current students): Go to MyCentral and login. In the "UCM Home" tab (the default tab) find "Schedule Planner" in the middle column. Find more details about how to search for classes and plan your schedule using Schedule Planner.

When does enrollment begin for next semester's classes?

Enrollment for Summer and Fall classes begins in March and enrollment for Spring classes begins in October.  Enrollment access dates span a period of four weeks, with seniors enrolling first and freshmen enrolling last.

Enrollment access dates are determined by your hours earned (does not include those in progress). Earned hours can be found on your academic transcript (available in MyCentral in the “UCM Student Records” section of the "Student Services" tab). It is very important to enroll early on your enrollment access date. Your access will be open at 12 a.m. (midnight) that day. Approximately 700 students enroll each day. Waiting a few hours can make a big difference in your schedule.  

 Tips for Searching for Classes in MyCentral

Student Level

If you are an undergraduate student, limit all of your searches to “Undergraduate” in the “Course Level.” That way you don’t have to see all of the graduate level classes (Graduate students, you can do the same)!

Campus Location

If you only wish to take courses on the Warrensburg campus, limit all of your searches to “At UCM in Warrensburg” in the “Campus” field. This will prevent you from accidentally signing up for a class that is in another town or state.


Try searching for all of your prefixes at the same time instead of one by one – this makes it easier to compare days/times of your classes. You can do this by holding down your Ctrl key while you choose different “Subjects.” For example, you can look up ENGL, HIST, MATH and SOC together to make your schedule.


If you are taking a class that has a separate laboratory component (either with or without credit hours), be sure to add both lecture and lab at the same time or you will get an enrollment error.

Day/Time Slots

The computer will not let you sign up for two classes at the same time or with any time overlap– you will get an enrollment error.

Searching for a class at a particular day/time? You can choose all subject areas (choose the first subject, hold Shift, choose the last subject) and then limit your search to your particular day/time (be careful, times must be exact!). This is also a good way to search for first and second half semester classes.

Course Information

For more information about a class, click on the CRN (highlighted 5-digit number) and then again on the title of the course (also highlighted). This will show you the course prerequisites, waitlist numbers, withdrawal and refund dates, and instructor credentials.

Online Class(es)

Want an online class? Find all online courses by selecting all Subject areas (choose the first subject, hold Shift, choose the last subject) and then limit the “Schedule Type” field to “Online.”
