A note about Driver’s Ed: Each year we get many questions about how to register for driver’s education at MMU. The first thing students need to do in order to get on our driver’s ed list is to bring their permit to Student Services to be copied. This makes one eligible for the class. Each semester, we schedule the oldest students whose permits are on file. We are currently scheduling students for Fall 2019 driver’s ed and will schedule Spring 2020 driver’s ed in October.
