Registration Dates and Windows

What is a Registration Window?

Your registration window is the time frame in which you can register for classes.  Internet or online registration windows are made available to students based largely on the number of completed credits you have earned. 

You can check your online registration window by logging in to the web portal, select the 'Registration' tab and then select the proper year/term and click on the 'Registration Window' link. For most courses the registration window closes on the fifth day of the semester.

Late-starting courses and late-registration

A student may register for any course on a space-available basis before the course begins, though once the registration windows are closed the registration will need to be processed on campus at the registration counter.

A student may not attend or participate in any course for which they are not registered. The college may refuse to process registration requests late in the semester.
