Assessment & Registration sessions will last a minimum of 3 hours. Plan your schedule accordingly. Once you complete the session, you will leave with your college schedule.


New, incoming students are required to attend a registration session, which will cover important information about Mesabi Range College services and policies. This is also an opportunity for you to meet advisors that will help you with your course selection.

All new students must take the Accuplacer before registering for classes. The Accuplacer is an assessment test of Reading, English and Mathematics. Mesabi Range College uses this test to determine your skill level, and also to determine your placement in campus courses. You may re-test once per fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th).
