Registration

New Students

Registration for new students at the Vancouver Campus will take place during Orientation Week.  Following placement testing, students will meet with their Academic Advisor, who will assist them with their registration for classes. 

Continuing Students

Continuing students receive advanced registration privileges. This advanced registration begins in March for the summer term, June for the fall term and November for the spring terms. The scheduling of the date for each continuing student to register is based upon credit hours earned, with those closest to graduation receiving the highest priority. Students can register directly online through WebAdvisor

Detailed course information on courses and course descriptions are available on Web Advisor and Course Finder.  Please review the course offerings in preparation for registration paying particular attention to any special registration notes.  Course offerings, times and rooms are subject to change based on enrollments.  Remember to check your web advisor account through the remainder of the term and in particular during the week prior to the start of the term to check for any updates.

If you have any questions, you can contact your Academic Advisor to discuss your course selection.  The past few terms some courses have been running at capacity, so students, who delay registering until later, run the risk of not getting the courses or sections that they want.  If you are a student currently on a Leave of Absence, you will need to contact the Enrollment Services Office to ensure your account is active.  You should also contact your academic advisor to discuss your course selection.

Registration can be done in person with the advisor, or online through WebAdvisor.

Students with outstanding accounts will not be able to register until their accounts are paid in full. Academic records also will be withheld until all financial obligations have been resolved. Please see Arlette Hernandez in the Enrollment Services Office, if this applies to you.
