Register for Classes

When Can I Register for Classes?

You can register for classes after registration opens for your amount of academic credits. Second-year students are given priority registration so they can secure the classes they need to graduate. Look for all the admissions and registration deadlines on our important dates calendar.

Course Prerequisites

Some courses have required prerequisites. They are shown in the quarterly class schedule under "Enrollment Requirements.'"You are blocked from registering in these classes until any prerequisites are satisfied.

Placement Testing ensures students meet required prerequisites and mathematics courses. Students not meeting the prerequisite are not allowed to register for mathematics or courses requiring a mathematics prerequisite. Our Placement Testing page helps you determine which English courses you take. Please note that English placement depends on prior achievements and you are not required to take an English placement test.
