Priority registration is given to Continuing Students who have completed the matriculation process. Matriculation components consist of assessment, orientation, counseling and the completion of a Student Educational Plan (SEP). Even if a student is exempt from matriculating, the student may complete any of the components to increase the probability of academic success.
First-term priority registration includes assessment, orientation, and counseling/advising; continuing priority registration includes the completion of a Student Educational Plan.

This table reflects a combination of State or Federal mandated groups, priorities that align with the College Mission and the goal of increasing student success and completion. Overall, students must have completed orientation, assessment, and have met with a counselor for initial priority and have completed a Student Educational Plan (SEP) for subsequent priority.
You may be given priority registration status if you complete the following steps:
Students can view their priority registration appointments via the web. See How to Check Your Registration Status for full instructions.
You may also inquire at your local campus office, or at the Office of Counseling, or at ACCESS Programs at the Ridgecrest / IWV campus. You may register at the time shown or anytime thereafter that the system is available. Your registration will not be accepted prior to the scheduled time. Priority registration notification will not be mailed.
All courses are closed for enrollment after the first course meeting. Late adds are granted for extenuating circumstance only. Examples of verifiable extenuating circumstances may be: accidents, illness, death of an immediate family member, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student. A late add petition must be signed by the student, instructor, and the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Documentation of extenuating circumstance will be required.
You may not add a short term/late start class by phone or online on/or after its initial class meeting date.
If a class is full when you register, you will be added to the waitlist.
