Q. What is my Priority Registration Appointment?
A. Students who are eligible for Priority Registration are randomly assigned an appointment date and time, which is their first opportunity to register for classes (and any time after that). Students can check online on eServices for their own priority appointment date/time.

Q. How do I add a class?
A. If you were unable to add a class during the regular priority or open registration period, attend the first class meeting. Although wait listed students get first consideration for available seats, it is still possible to add a class. If there is space available, the instructor will give you a Permission Number. Use that number along with the class number to register online via eServices.

Q. How do I drop a class?
A. As a student, you are responsible for withdrawing or dropping from classes in which you are officially enrolled. You can drop classes online via eServices. If you fail to attend a class in which you are officially enrolled and do not drop the class, you are still liable for the fees and may receive a "F" or "W" grade. Be sure to check online for drop deadline dates. Deadlines vary for dropping summer and short-term classes.

Q. When is the last day to drop a class?
A. There are different deadline dates, depending on which term the class is in and if the deadline is for no notation, a refund, or receiving a "W" grade. You can find the add/drop date calendar online or pick up a calendar in the admissions offices.

Q. What is the maximum number of units I can take?
A. The district policy for the maximum number of units you can enroll in per semester is 18. Students wishing to take more than 18 units during a semester must obtain approval from a counselor and Enrollment Services Dean. The Student Petition for Exceed Unit Limit form can be found online or pick one up at the Enrollment Services Office.

Q. How many units must I take to be considered a full-time student?
A. If you enrolled in 12 or more units in the fall or spring semester, you are considered a full-time student. During the summer session, if you are enrolled in 6 units, you are considered a full-time student.

Q. Do I have to repeat a class in which I received a D or F grade?
A. It is to the student's benefit to repeat a class in which he/she received a grade of D or F in order to raise their GPA. In order to satisfy major requirements and General Education Requirements for CSU Breadth and IGETC, the student must have a minimum of "C" grade in all courses. If you received a grade of D or F in a course, you may repeat the class twice.

Q. How do I get a refund?
A. To be eligible for a refund, classes must be dropped by appropriate deadline dates (see add/drop calendar ). It is the student's responsibility to drop the class as well as file a refund request form. Refund forms must be filed by the last day of the semester of the class. You can apply for a refund online or fill out a refund request form in the Business Services.
