*Have you applied, arranged financial aid and payment, completed your placement testing, completed Bigfoot Beginnings, and talked to an academic counselor? You may not be able to register until you have been cleared by all the previous steps.

Note: Non-degree seeking students do not need to complete Bigfoot Beginnings Canvas course. Running Start students will work directly with the Office of Concurrent Enrollment to 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 in English composition and mathematics courses. Students not meeting the prerequisite are allowed to register in English composition or mathematics, or courses requiring an English or mathematics prerequisite.
