Registration Guidelines and Tips

Classes fill quickly! For best course selection, develop a Student Education Plan with your counselor and register as soon as possible!

Please click on the topics below for specific information on each topic

  • All new and returning students (you have not been registered for classes for two or more semesters) are required to submit an Application for Admission as early as possible.
  • Before you register, clear any prior debts to the college at the Business Services Office. Business Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.
  • Review counseling, testing and orientation information.
  • Students are limited to registering for a maximum of 18 units during priority, open registration, and Web registration. Students must have a advisor's approval to register for more than 18 units.
  • Check to see if any courses you are enrolling in have a prerequisite. It is your responsibility to be sure you have met the prerequisite.
  • Plan a balanced schedule.
  • Classes with low enrollment may be canceled. Be sure to register early so your enrollment is counted!
  • Students currently on academic probation may need to see an advisor before registering for classes.

Some courses are graded on a letter-grade-only basis and some are graded on a Pass (P) No Pass (NP) only basis. Other courses offer students an option. To request a P/NP grade, select the "Register P/NP" option when registering for your class via WebAdvisor. If you decide to change you registration from Grade Only to P/NP after registration, you may do so up until 25% of the way through a class. Your decision is final and cannot be changed later.  Changing to P/NP is not allowed after this date. For courses less than a semester in length, check with your instructor or send an email by clicking here: P/NP question.

  • Complete an application for admission to CR.
  • Complete the prerequisites for the course.
  • Print the audit form.
  • After the second class meeting, meet with the instructor to verify that you may audit the course. If the instructor signs your audit form; return the form to Admissions & Records.
  • Pay fees of $15.00 per unit (non-refundable), and Health Fee.
  • Financial Aid (including fee waivers) does not cover audited courses.
  • Once a student signs up to audit a course, the student cannot change to receiving credit and a grade for the course or vice versa.
  • Concurrently enrolled high school students may not audit courses.

Students use WebAdvisor to register and pay for classes. Review our schedule of classes and log-in to register. It is easy, quick, and can be done from the comfort of your home.

In some instances, short-term classes may be offered that begin later in the semester. You are encouraged to register in advance.

Students on waitlists must go to the first class meeting.  Instructors will  let you know if he/she will allow you to add the class.  If the instructor chooses to add you to the class, s/he will let you know what time s/he will complete processing your add authorization.  After that time, you will be able to log onto WebAdvisor and change your registration from "Waitlisted" to "Registered. It is your responsibility to register yourself for the class using WebAdvisor.

Students may add an open class via WebAdvisor until 11:00pm the evening before the first class meeting.

If the class has already begun then it is up to the instructor to decide if s/he will take more students. You must obtain an instructor-signed add card and bring it to Admissions and Records for it to be processed.  You are not registered for the class until the add card is processed.

It is your responsibility to pay any fees, if applicable.

Payment is due upon registration. Students may contact the Business Office to arrange payment plans if necessary.
