What is priority registration?

Priority registration is designated specifically for students who enroll in SBCC for the purpose of degree or certificate attainment, transfer to a four-year college or university, or career advancement. Students who have completed orientation and assessment, developed an education plan, declared a major, and maintained good academic standing will be granted higher priority for registration.

体育365Admissions & Records notifies students of their registration dates by posting the date and time in the student’s Pipeline account 2 weeks prior to the start of Priority Registration. Specific dates and times are determined by: Student Type (Continuing, New, Returning, etc.), Educational Goal, Support Programs (DSPS, EOPS, Foster Youth, Veterans, CalWorks), Academic Standing and completed course units (0-99).

Enrollment priorities are defined in Administrative Procedure 5055
