Steps to Success

Want to start your college career at Folsom Lake College? Complete the steps below in order to register for classes:

Step 1: Apply

Apply - Complete your application online. Fill out and submit your application starting February 1st (for Summer/Fall terms) or starting September 9th (for Spring term) - just click here and then select Folsom Lake College. Once your application has been accepted, you will receive a Student ID number by email, which you will need to access all of our services. Once you receive your student ID, you will want to set up your password to access eServices and your Los Rios Gmail Account, click here to set up your password. In order to access your Gmail account, click on this link and log in using your student ID and your new password.

Step 2: Orientation

Orientation - Orientation is offered in an online format for the Los Rios Community College District. For more information, click here. You may complete the online orientation 24 hours after you receive your student ID number.

Step 3: Assessment

Assessment - It is best to take your assessments in February/March (for Summer/Fall terms) or in September/October (for Spring term) in order to qualify for priority registration. Students will test in both English and math to place into classes that match their skill level. Testing dates are available on the Assessment wepage here. You should also prepare for testing by reviewing the Assessment Preparation Tutorial and study guides for both English and math (Note: there are 4 different levels of math. There are practice tests online to help you choose a level and prepare for your assessments.). Test results will be given to students directly after testing and are needed in order to develop an education plan.

Step 4: Create an Education Plan

Counseling - Students should plan on attending an academic planning session after completing assessment testing. During this planning session, you will put together a first semester education plan with academic counselors. To sign up for a group session, click here. Things to bring with you: Assessment Results, High School Transcripts and/or College Transcripts, and AP Test Scores (unofficial documents are acceptable). Think about why you are coming to college and your academic goal. Sessions are for students only.

Steps #1-4 above MUST be completed by April 1st (for Summer/Fall terms) or November 1st (for Spring term), in order to receive an earlier priority registration date. However, students may complete these steps at any time to enroll for classes during open registration.

Step 5: Registration

Registration - Summer/Fall registration for newly matriculated students will happen in May; students will be assigned a date and time when they can begin registering by mid-April, which can be viewed on eServices. The class schedule will be posted online in April for you to start selecting your Summer and/or Fall courses. Spring registration for newly matriculated students will happen in December; students will be assigned a date and time when they can begin registering by mid-November, which can be viewed on eServices. The class schedule will be posted online in November for you to start selecting your Spring courses.

Students must complete the Application, Orientation, Assessment, and Create an Education Plan in order to register for classes in a timely manner! Students may register for classes online using eServices or in-person at Folsom Main Campus, El Dorado Center, or Rancho Cordova Center.

Step 6: Pay Your Fees

Enrollment fees are due when you add a class(es). Nonpayment of fees will result in the class or classes being dropped. If applying for a BOG fee waiver or arranging for 3rd party billing, it is important to take care of this before adding classes.
