The subject line to your email should be ATC.ACCT.13
. Professor Tydlaska is the faculty member handling these approvals. The approval period is substantial due to the high volume of students. Do not send your request more than one time. Do not leave voice mail messages or email staff asking when you will be approved.
6. You will receive an email stating you are approved to register. You will not be approved for a course(s) if you have not completed the prerequisites.
7. MVC does not enroll you in the courses – Professor Tydlaska approves your course work, the approved courses are then unblocked in the system for that particular student. It is best to request your course work on one form. Do not send in multiple requests.

one can take per semester is 9 hours. This does not include any business related courses
. Students will be approved or not approved on a case by case basis if requesting more than 9 semester credit hours of upper division accounting courses.
