Q. How do I sign up for classes?
A. If you are a new student, you must first submit an online application. Go to our Steps to Success for new students for more detailed information. Continuing students must submit a Supplemental Enrollment Form on eServices every semester in order to register for classes.

Q. What is my Priority Registration Appointment?
A. Students who are eligible for Priority Registration are randomly assigned an appointment date and time, which is their first opportunity to register for classes (and any time after that). Students can check online on eServices for their own priority appointment date/time.  Times range from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and registration can occur on eServices during that entire time period.  If you need personal assistance in our office, please be aware that we may be closed at the time of your particular Priority Appointment.  You will need to come in later in the day or the next day, whichever applies.  After the Priority Registration period has ended, all students can register during Open Registration.

Q. How do I add a class?
A. If you were unable to add a class or get on the wait list during the priority or open registration period, attend the first class meeting. Although wait listed students get first consideration for available seats, it is still possible to add a class. If there is space available, the instructor will give you a Permission Number. Use that number along with the class number to register online via eServices.

Q. How much are the enrollment fees?
A. California residents: The current enrollment fee is $46 per unit (although fees are subject to change at any time).   Fees are higher for non-residents and international students. Details and a list of other fees can be found online.

Q. How do I drop a class?
A. As a student, you are responsible for withdrawing or dropping from classes in which you are officially enrolled. You can drop classes either online via eServices or at the Admissions & Records office. If you fail to attend a class in which you are officially enrolled and do not drop the class, you are still liable for the fees and may receive a "F" or "W" grade. Be sure to check online for drop deadline dates. Deadlines vary for dropping summer and short-term classes.

Q. When is the last day to drop a class?
A. There are different deadline dates, depending on which term the class is in and if the deadline is for no notation, a refund, or receiving a "W" grade. You can find the add/drop date calendar online or pick up a calendar in the admissions and records offices.

Q. What is the maximum number of units I can take?
A. The policy for the maximum number of units you can enroll in per semester is 18 (the maximum in the summer is 8 units).  This maximum unit load applies across the Los Rios District.  Students wishing to take more than the maximum must complete the Excess Units Petition form, obtain approval from a counselor and then register in person at the A&R counter - at the college where the enrollment puts the student over the 18 unit load. The Student Petition form can be downloaded from here or pick one up at the A&R counter.

Q. How many units must I take to be considered a full-time student?
A. If you enrolled in 12 or more units in the fall or spring semester, you are considered a full-time student. During the summer session, if you are enrolled in 6 units, you are considered a full-time student.
Return to Top

Q. Do I have to repeat a class in which I received a D or F grade?
A. It is to the student's benefit to repeat a class in which he/she received a grade of D or F in order to raise their GPA. In order to satisfy major requirements and General Education Requirements for CSU Breadth and IGETC, the student must have a minimum of "C" grade in all courses.  If you received a grade of D or F in a course, you may repeat the class twice.
Return to Top

Q. How do I get a refund?
A. To be eligible for a refund, classes must be dropped by appropriate deadline dates (see add/drop calendar ). It is the student's responsibility to drop the class as well as file a refund request form. Refund forms must be filed by the last day of the semester of the class. You can apply for a refund online or fill out a refund request form in the A&R office.  Refunds are not automatic and do not roll forward to future semesters.

Q. Are students who have a bachelor's degree or higher required to pay additional fees because they have the degree(s)?
A. No. Students with bachelor's degrees or higher are subject to the same fee schedule as students without a degree.

Q. Can I get an official transcript even though I owe money to the college?
A. No.

Q. Can I pay for my fees in installments?
A. Yes. The college has a payment plan service for students paying non-resident or international student fees. For more information, contact Business Services at 916-608-6549.

Q. Where do I buy a parking permit?
A. You can purchase a parking permit online via eServices when you register for your classes - or in person at the FLC or EDC admissions& records/student services offices.  Please be aware that a parking decal is not required when parking at RCC.  If you purchase the decal on eServices, the decal will be mailed to you the next business day.  Buy online - to stay out of line!
