Taking just one or a few classes
You can take Tompkins Cortland courses without applying for admission to a degree program. If you are interested in registering for just one or a few classes (but not full time, 12 or more credits), there are a few things things specific to your situation that you should know.
Begin a Search
Sign in to myTC3.
Select myINFO from the set of buttons or from the navigation choices.
Select the Search tab from the myINFO main menu.
Select Section Search from the submenu.
Search for a course
Enter the course abbreviation and number in the Course Code box. Examples: ENGL101, ART 102, PSYC101.
Note: All courses need four letters. If the course abbreviation (example: ART) contains fewer than four letters, add one space before the course number in your search. (example: ART 102).
Select the year and semester from the Period menu to limit your search results to just one semester. Example: Spring 2015.
Tips: To broaden your search, enter the course abbreviation only. Examples: ENGL, ART, PSYC. This is useful if you are having trouble identifying a specific course number, or if you prefer to search all of the course offerings in a particular area of study. The Keywords search may also be helpful, but is less selective than a Course Code search.
Offerings by time and location
To search for online courses, select the Advanced Search tab and then choose "Distance Learning - Web" from the Campus field.
At the Section Search page, select the Advanced Search tab before entering a course code. In the advanced search menu, select "Cortland Extension Center" or "Ithaca Extension Center" from the Campus menu on the right column.
Class locations are also listed as such in the Schedule column when viewing the full course schedule.
At the Section Search menu, select “session” and choose a designation. Examples: “1st 5 Wks,” “Late Start/10 Wks.”
Learning community course pairings
Learning communities are paired courses that must be taken together. Available learning community course offerings are viewable online. If you wish to enroll in a learning community, you must add and register for both courses.
At the Section Search page, select the Advanced Search tab before entering a course code. In the advanced search menu, select Sub Type on the right column and choose “learning community.”
