Course Registration Guidelines & Tips

Classes fill quickly! For best course selection, develop a Student Education Plan with your counselor and register as soon as possible!


  • All new and returning students (you have not been registered for classes for two or more semesters) are required to submit an Application for Admission as early as possible.
  • Before you register, clear any prior debts to the college at the Business Services Office. Business Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.
  • Review counseling, testing and orientation information.
  • Students are limited to registering for a maximum of 18 units during priority, open registration, and Web registration. Students must have a advisor's approval to register for more than 18 units.
  • Check to see if any courses you are enrolling in have a prerequisite. It is your responsibility to be sure you have met the prerequisite.
  • Plan a balanced schedule.
  • Classes with low enrollment may be canceled. Be sure to register early so your enrollment is counted!
  • Students currently on academic probation may need to see an advisor before registering for classes.

Some courses are graded on a letter-grade-only basis and some are graded on a Pass (P) No Pass (NP) only basis. Other courses offer students an option. To request a P/NP grade, select the "Register P/NP" option when registering for your class via WebAdvisor. If you decide to change you registration from Grade Only to P/NP after registration, you may do so up until 25% of the way through a class. Your decision is final and cannot be changed later.  Changing to P/NP is not allowed after this date. For courses less than a semester in length, check with your instructor or send an email by clicking here: P/NP question.
