Getting Started

There are two steps to enrolling in classes as a High School Enrichment Student:

  1. Apply Online
    • If you have not submitted an online application in the last two years, complete the online admission application for the first semester the student plans to attend. You must select “Enrichment/Dual Enrollment” under the “Term Applying For” in the application. An instructional video is available with step-by-step directions on filling out the online application. You will receive an email with you college ID number within two business days after submitting your application. 
  2. Complete the High School Enrichment Packet
    • Once you receive your college ID number, you can work with your high school counselor to select the courses you wish to take and complete the HSE packet. To see which classes are available, check the current class schedules. Please note: the HSE packet requires signatures from your parents, high school counselor, and high school principal. The packet includes fillable forms and digital signatures (make sure to open the packet in Adobe, not your internet browser). If you are unable to access the digital signature option, a scanned copy of the application with physical signatures is acceptable. For questions regarding the application packet, please call 559.442.8225
    • Email your completed HSE packet to collegerelations@fresnocitycollege.edu. All packets must be accompanied by a current high school transcript (unofficial).

Please note: Online Applications and High School Enrichment Packets must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the beginning of your desired course(s).

Registration Information

After you have submitted the online application and HSE packet, a counselor will review your application. If you do not meet the eligibility requirements and you have submitted the additional documentation (see Requirements and Eligibility above), the application will be forwarded to the Vice President of Instruction for review. If your application is approved, College Relations will forward your application to the Admissions & Records Office for registration. HSE students cannot register or drop courses online through WebAdvisor.

College Relations will notify you by phone or email if/when you are registered for your course(2).

What are waitlists?

A waitlist is a list that students can join and wait for open seats in a class. If a student in the class drops, a seat opens up and is filled by a student on the waitlist. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a seat in the class. It does, however give you a priority making it more likely you will get a seat in the class.


Waitlists will be active from the first day of registration through the Thursday prior to the start of the term. For short-term courses, the waitlist will close 7 days prior to the start of the class.

How do I register into a class from a waitlist?

Once your seat becomes available in your waitlisted course, you will receive an email notification. The message will only be sent to your student email account or you can access the information in WebAvisor under “Manage My WaitList” to see if your status has changed to “Permission to Register.” Once you receive the email notifying you that you have permission to register, please call our office at 559.442.8225 so we can process your registration. Remember, HSE students cannot register themselves online.

Once permission to register is granted, you will have four days (including weekends) to enroll in the class using WebAdvisor. After four days, if you have not enrolled in the class, you will be removed from the active waitlist and the next student on the list will be notified.

What if I forget to check my email?

It is your responsibility to check your email and/or your waitlist status. The time allowed for enrollment will not be extended. You should check your email or status on WebAdvisor daily to allow yourself the maximum amount of time to enroll. 

What if I’m still on the waitlist after registration has closed?  

If you are on a waitlist after registration closes, you must attend the first class meeting and check with the instructor to see if there is space available for late enrollment. If you do not attend the first day of class, you will lose your place on the waitlist and another student may be added instead. If there is space in the class, the instructor will provide you with a registration code that you can use to register through WebAdvisor.

What if I’ve waitlisted an online class?

Prior to the closing of registration, the exact process applies for students on a waitlist for online classes. After registration has closed, you may email the professor of your desired course to ask for permission to register. If a space becomes available during the add period, you will receive an email from the online instructor with a registration code that will allow you to add the course.

Regular registration for courses closes the Friday before the classes begin. At this point, we are unable to register students without an add code from an instructor. After registration has closed, you may email the professor of your desired course to ask for permission to register. If a space becomes available during the add period, the instructor will provide you with an add code that will allow you to add the course. Please call 559.442.8225 so we can complete your registration. HSE students cannot register on their own with an add code.

If you need to drop a course, contact College Relations at 559.442.8225 so we can assist you with dropping the course. HSE students cannot drop courses on their own through WebAdvisor.
