After submitting an application for admissions, New College Students are required to take an assessment test and complete the online Orientation and First Semester Ed Plan in WebAdvisor before they may register for classes. While Continuing Students will automatically receive Registration Appointments, Returning Students must first reapply before they can register for classes.
Students may register for classes on or after their Registration Appointment. These are made available 6 to 8 weeks before the start of term. A student can find out the date and time of their Appointment by clicking on the link “Check my Registration Dates/Holds” in WebAdvisor.
Class schedules are available approximately two months before each term. A limited number are available at campus bookstores. During the registration period, you will also be able to view classes that are still open on WebAdvisor.
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 and your student account will be charged with the enrollment fees. Please check your schedule regularly online with WebAdvisor and/or your RCCD email account to confirm your status.
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 midnight of the evening prior to 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:
- Log in to WebAdvisor
- Click on "Register and Drop Classes"
- Then click on "Manage My Waitlist"
Students can register for classes in WebAdvisor, by logging in and clicking on the link “Register and Drop Classes”. WebAdvisor is available 24 hours a day .
Walk-in registration is available through the Admissions & Records office.
