Online Orientation

Priority Registration

What is priority registration?
Priority registration allows you to register for classes earlier than the rest of the CR student body. This helps you get the classes you need to achieve your goals and not end up on a wait list.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Complete the New Student Orientation online
  • Complete the Math and English Placement Process *
  • Develop a Student Education Plan
  • Maintain good academic standing
  • Earn a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.00 or better
  • Successfully complete 50% of all units attempted
  • Have not earned more than 100 degree-applicable units
  • Have not earned an Associate's Degree or higher

* Pursuant to AB 705, College of the Redwoods maximizes the opportunity for all students to be able to progress through transfer level English and mathematics courses within one year.  There are various ways to determine which English and mathematics courses are most appropriate for a student’s preparedness and goals.  These various ways are called Multiple Measures.  Multiple Measures can include, but are not limited to, things such as guided placement, high school records, self-report, and self-placement.  To speak with someone about which English and mathematics courses are best for your preparedness and goals, contact the Academic Support Center or Counseling and Advising services at the campus you plan to attend.
