Priority registration allows you to register early so you can get into courses before they fill up. To be eligible, you must participate in orientation, complete the assessment process for math and English course placement, and develop an Education Plan with your counselor or advisor. This process will help you to clearly define your goals, stay on track, and take the most direct route from start to finish.
If you are in a degree or certificate program or planning to transfer to a four-year college or university, achieving and maintaining priority registration is a crucial part of getting into the courses you need to reach your goals.
In addition to completing the three basic steps—orientation, assessment, and Education Planning—all campuses have additional requirements for maintaining priority registration eligibility.
Certain students will always receive the highest registration priority. If you fall into one of these groups, talk to a counselor to find out more:
There is an appeal process available if you lose priority registration eligibility or are on academic probation. Contact your college’s counseling center for assistance getting back on track.
