Registering for Classes

With the exception of Special Part-Time Populations that must register in person, all students receive an appointment time to register online using Reg-e. You can find important information about the deadline to receive a registration appointment for upcoming semesters here.

RESIDENCY

If your acceptance email states that you are being considered a "non-resident for tuition purposes" you may still register for classes. Your fees will reflect out-of-state status. If you feel that this determination has been met in error or you would like to learn more about residency see Residency.

HOLDS

Students with a hold on their record will not be permitted to register for classes until the hold has been cleared. You may check the type of hold you have on Reg-e.

ADDING CLASSES

Students may add classes online until the posted deadline. Find deadlines posted on the class schedule under "details".

To add a class once the semester has begun, students must obtain an add code from the instructor. Once an add code is received, the student must add the class through Reg-e. It is important to note that if there is a balance on a student's account, the "Register/Add Class" button will not be available. Students must pay their fees before adding further classes.

If you are attempting to register online and receive the error code: Prerequisite Not Satisfied please refer to Counseling.

DROPPING CLASSES

Students may drop classes online until the posted deadline. Find the important deadlines for dropping without a "W" and with a refund as well as deadline to drop with a "W". It is a student's responsibility to drop a course by the posted deadline or a letter grade will be assigned. Simply not attending class will not drop you from the roster.

UNIT LOAD

The maximum study load for a primary semester (fall/spring) is 20 academic units including Exercise Science (formerly Physical Education) activity units.

Students are reminded that each unit of credit is calculated to involve a total of at least three hours of classroom and outside time per week. Thus, a 20-unit study load represents a minimum 60-hour work load each week. Students working full-time are advised NOT to attempt a full-time college program

Twelve units of credit is considered a minimum full-time program during a semester; nine units is three-quarters time, and six units, half-time.

The maximum study load for summer session is 12 academic units including Exercise Science (formerly Physical Education) activity units. Six units of credit is considered a minimum full-time during the summer session; four units is three-quarters time, and three units, half time.

  1. Failure to pay all mandatory fees in accordance with the fee payment schedule;
  2. Using an add code issued to another student;
  3. Failure to meet the terms and conditions of a fee deferment;
  4. Failure to meet academic or progress standards;
