How to Get Registered for Classes

We're excited to have you join us at SCTCC next semester! If you still need to register, we're here to help you get started with different ways to get registered for classes.

During registration, new students will meet one-on-one with an advisor. During this meeting, you'll:

  • Be able to ask questions about classes
  • Review your academic plan
  • Register for classes for the next semester

Current student?

Email or call the Academic Advising Center, or get a hold of your faculty advisor for your Access Code. Each semester students are required to meet with an advisor to:

  • Review their academic plan
  • Receive their access code in order to register for courses for the coming semester
  • This code is unique to you and can only be obtained through your advisor

Students should come prepared with Degree Audit (found on e-services) to attend a drop-in meeting with an advisor to review their academic plan and receive their access code.
