The College of Southern Maryland will close all campuses for the Independence Day holiday July 4, including the St. Charles Children’s Learning Center, and CSM’s Kids’ and Teen College programs.

Registration for Summer II classes, which begin July 7, is available online. Additionally, registration for fall semester classes is now available.

Students are encouraged to register for fall semester now to have the best selection.

“Students shouldn’t wait to register if they already know what courses they need to move ahead in completing their degrees,” said CSM Senior Director/Register Carol Harrison.

“If a class you need or a class that best fits your schedule is full, we encourage students to place themselves on a waiting list while also registering for the next best choice. This will help CSM determine if an additional course section should be added,” she said.

Access to online services, including registration, is available at www.csmd.edu and through my.CSMD services.

The MVA will close its full-service and express offices on Friday, July 4 and Saturday July 5, 2014 in observance of the Independence Day Holiday. All Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) stations will also be closed.
