Update: Fall is nearly over! Check out our dates for spring.
Fall is just around the corner, and there’s lots to see and lots to do before your classes start. Hopefully we can help keep you on track!
For your convenience, we have added an extended Saturday registration day on Saturday, August 12. All seven DCCCD colleges will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day to help you get admitted, register for classes and answer any questions. The last day to register is August 15 for students with an academic standing of “good.”
Heads up: All DCCCD campuses will be closed Friday, Aug. 18 for District Conference Day.
Please also note that new students will not be able to register after Aug. 18. (Students who have registered by Aug. 18 will still be able to add or drop classes after that date, assuming those classes have not begun yet.) If you’d like, you also can register online with eConnect. (But on that note, you might want to find out if you’re eligible for online registration.)

“Why Can’t I Register for This Class?!”
If you normally attend another college or university and you’re taking classes with us this semester, we’ll need your transcripts from those other institutions. One of the primary reasons for this is because many courses have prerequisites that must be met before you can register. Your transcripts are the main way we find out if you’ve taken those prerequisites elsewhere before coming to DCCCD.
Transcripts are evaluated by DCCCD Admissions/Registrar’s offices, and you will need to have your transcripts sent to the college you plan to attend. (Still have questions about transcripts? Check out some of our frequently asked questions about transcripts and evaluation.)
