How to Register for Classes

Class schedules are available online approximately two months prior to each term. You can view the latest schedule by clicking here. During the registration period you will also be able to view classes that are still open on WebAdvisor.

summer & fall 2013 Registration appointments
Registration appointments for Continuing, Returning, New, and Transfer students will be based on the recommendations of the California Student Success Initiative. To find out if you are a continuing, or returning student read the following:
You are a Continuing Student if you were enrolled in a course after the first two weeks or 20% of the course in the previous term.
You are a Returning Student if you missed one or more primary terms (fall/spring) and must reapply.
You are a New Student if you have never attended college previously. You will be required to complete assessment, orientation and counseling (AOC) prior to registration.
a Transfer Student if you have attended college elsewhere but
have never enrolled in RCCD classes.
Based on the new criteria, students who are NOT ON DISMISSAL shall be allowed to register in the following order:
*Units completed is defined as classes completed within RCCD with grades of A, B, C, D, P or CR
**Excludes basic skills classes
Before the beginning of the term, if a class is closed, you may place your name on a waitlist (if available). If a seat becomes available, you will automatically be added to the class and your student account will be charged with the enrollment fees. Email notice will be sent when you are enrolled in class from waitlist. Please check your schedule regularly online with WebAdvisor and/or your RCCD email account to confirm your status.Be sure to pay fees by deadline to avoid being dropped for nonpayment.
Students registered from the Waitlist must attend the first day of class to avoid being dropped. Students not registered from the Waitlist are encouraged to attend class the first day to see if space is available and the instructor is willing to add them.
Waitlisting ends two days before the first class meeting. You must drop yourself from the class by the drop and refund deadlines if you do not intend to remain in the class. You can manage your waitlist on WebAdvisor by doing the following:
Effective fall 2012, the maximum number of units you may waitlist is 18 units for fall/spring and 9 units for summer/winter.
