Register for Classes

To register for classes you must have:

  • Completed the admission process, which typically includes a placement test, and have a ctcLink ID number.
    • This step is done one time only. If you are a returning student and cannot remember your ctcLink ID number, contact Enrollment Services for assistance.
  • An assigned registration time, or register during open enrollment – see the Assigned Enrollment Dates chart. These times are automatically assigned to students. You do not call to set up a time to register for classes.

How to Register for Classes


Students who can’t register online include:

  • District high school students – a school district enrollment release/permission form is required each quarter you attend.
  • International high school completion students – need HSC advisor’s permission to add/drop classes.
  • Students enrolled in the following programs: GED, ELA, EdCAP, PCAPP, Pre-College and FLED Co-op preschool.
  • Students who haven’t taken the English and/or Math placement test or had it waived.

Students who are allowed to register online can do so using their ctcLink ID number from any computer.  See the Academic Calendar page for deadlines.
