Register for Classes

The Fall 2024 semester begins August 12, 2024!

Register Online

  1. Use your SEP to determine which classes you need. Go to the Schedule of Classes to find what is offered.
  2. Use Self-Service (access through MyPortal) to sign up online for each class or contact the Admissions & Records Office.  Stay on top of Registration Due Dates.

Remember to estimate your time. 1 unit equals 3 hours of homework per week.

Add Classes after the Semester begins

Once classes begin, the only way to add a class is to obtain Add Authorization from the instructor. The instructor's email address is in the course information in Self-Service. If the instructor has room in their class, they will assign Add Authorization in Self-Service. Students who were on the waitlist for the course before the start date will be given priority. Use the instructions below to register for the course using the code.

Instructions on Registering for a Class using an Add Authorization

  1. Log in to your student MyPortal (see instructions at the top of the page for login information) 
  2. Go to Self-Service on your dashboard
  3. Under the Menu (“hamburger”), click on Academics then “Register for Classes/View My Schedule”
  4. If you do not see your class listed, enter the 5-digit section number in the “Search for courses..” box at the top
  5. In the results, click “View Available Sections”, then click Add Section
  6. At the top, click “<Back to Register for Classes/..”
  7. Now find your class in the list with the status “Authorized for Add” and click Register
