Pre-Registration Information

Before You Can Register

Once you have followed the Matriculation Process, you should have your Student Education Plan, or otherwise know which classes you need to meet your goals. You are then ready to prepare for enrollment in classes.

You will NOT be permitted to register if a hold has been levied against your registration. See instructions on how to identify and clear any holds.

Prerequisites & Co-requisites

Prerequisites are classes that you must have passed with a grade of “C” or better prior to taking the class for which it is a prerequisite. Co-requisites are classes that must be taken during the same semester as the class for which it is a co-requisite.

Ensure all prerequisites are met prior to registration and that you qualify for and have room in your schedule to take any required co-requisites. Check for course descriptions and prerequisite/co-requisite information.

If you have taken the Math and English placement tests within the past 2 years, your scores are still valid and you can register for those classes. If your scores are more than 2 years old and you have not taken an English and/or Math course at a SCCCD college/campus, we recommend that you retake the appropriate Assessment Test.

Generally, if a prerequisite has been satisfied at a college outside of the State Center Community College District (SCCCD), you will need to forward your official transcripts to:

Fresno City College
Attn: Records
1101 E. University Avenue
Fresno, CA 93741

However, if you are not intending to earn a degree or certificate from an SCCCD campus, and you have satisfied a prerequisite at a college outside of SCCCD, take your unofficial transcripts to the Counseling Department for review. In either case, you will need to have Counseling enter a prerequisite override for the course or courses.

Review the class schedule to find the Subject, Course Number, and Section Number of the class for which you wish to register.

Holds & Restrictions

If you are not restricted to a limited number of units due to a Counseling Hold, register for your classes online through WebAdvisor. Instructions on how to register WebAdvisor video. If the number of units for which you can register is restricted, you will need to bring your signed approval and register in person at the Admissions and Records counter.

If you are restricted to a limited number of units or if you have a prerequisite override from an instructor and must register in person, bring your documentation to the Admissions and Records counter. If your work hours preclude you bringing it yourself, you may designate a ONE TIME authorized substitute by filling out the front side of the Student Registration Worksheet. You must sign and date it. If your authorized substitute makes an error on your registration, you must understand that the college may not be able to correct it. Any resulting charges are your responsibility. We recommend that you do your own registration whenever possible.
