College Credit-Seeking Students

You can register for classes after you apply, attend orientation, and meet with an academic advisor. Give yourself plenty of time to enroll based on when you want to start classes.

Semester, 12-Week, 8-Week, and 4-Week-Long Courses Available

In addition to full semester (16-week) courses, courses are also offered within the full semester in 12-week, 8-week, or 4-week session formats. There is a priority registration period and an open registration period for each semester. Priority registration is when registration first opens for all terms in a semester. After priority and open registration end for a semester, you can still register for 12-, 8-, or 4-week session courses that have not started yet.

Keep reading for details on term dates, when you can register, and schedule adjustment dates.

Semester/Session Dates and When You Can Register: College-Credit Seeking Students

After priority and open registration end for a semester, you can still register for courses in sessions within that semester that have not started yet. The last day you can register for a term or session is the day before that session starts. You can still register and pay for classes online during times when the college is closed.
