Get the classes you want

To get the best selection of classes, you should register as early as possible for the upcoming semester. Check Registration Dates to learn when registration begins.

Before you choose classes, you need to see which classes you’re eligible to take.  This is based on your Placement Testing.

We recommend that you next meet with a counselor to discuss what classes you should take. The counselor will make sure the classes you choose fit in your program and lead toward graduation. If you’ve never attended college, you must meet with a counselor before you can register.
