New students must complete the online orientation, assessment and the academic planning session prior to the following dates in order to receive a higher priority registration date:

Summer/Fall    April 1
Spring             November 1


Continuing students can request a priority .5 registration date through a counseling appointment for their last semester/term @ FLC prior to transfer and/or graduation.  The priority 0/.5 form should be completed by the student, and signed off by the counselor - then submit to Lupe Martinez for processing.  Priority .5 forms are accepted through the day BEFORE the priority .5 registration date.

General Registration Processes 

Adding Classes
Prior to the start of the semester, you may add classes online using eServices or in person at the A&R office. Students can add classes during priority and open registration - if there is room in the class.

As a class fills, a wait list will become available (with room for 5-20 students). Although wait listed students get first consideration for available seats in classes, it is still possible for other students to try to add classes once classes begin. If there is space available in the class, the instructor will give out a Permission Number. Students can then add the class online using this Permission Number and the class number. The Permission Number will be valid for the first two weeks of a full-semester class. If you were on the wait list, make sure to drop yourself from the wait list first -- then add the class with the permission number. Late adds - After the semester has started, students can no longer be added to a wait list. In addition, the nightly process which automatically adds students from the wait list to the roster no longer runs. After the start of a semester or term, a permission number is required in order to add. After enrollment deadlines pass, students must petition with the Admissions & Records office to add.

Dropping Classes
You may drop classes using eServices or by submitting a drop request form with the Admissions & Records office. Deadlines for dropping classes and resulting penalties, if any, are listed on the district website - go to Add/Drop date calendar. Be mindful that adding, dropping or withdrawing may affect:
* Financial aid
* Veterans' benefits
* International student status
* Academic standing
* Athletic eligibility
See a counselor or the appropriate department for assistance before making changes to your schedule. It is the student's responsibility to drop from classes in which they do not plan to attend or are no longer attending. Instructors may or may not drop students for non-attendance. Students who drop from classes after the deadline for the last day to drop for a refund/credit are responsible for all fees.  

Drop notations:

  • No notation ('W' or other) will appear on the student's transcript if the student withdraws during the first 4 weeks or 30% of a term, whichever is less.  
  • Students who withdraw between the end of the 4th week and the last day of the 14th week of instruction (or 75% of the term, whichever is less) shall receive a 'W' grade.  
  • Students who withdraw after the 14th week ( or 75% of a term, whichever is less) will receive whatever grade they have earned in that class.  Students with extenuating circumstances (verified cases of accidents, illnesses or other circumstances beyond the control of the student) may petition for a 'W' grade. 
  • 'W's cannot be removed from transcripts unless the student can prove that they withdrew due to discriminatory treatment.  

Late Enrollment and Program Changes
Beginning the second week of instruction, adding a full semester classes requires a permission number obtained from faculty. Instructors, at their option, may add students to classes through the end of the second week of instruction. Drops must be processed by published dates to receive refund/credit. No late class additions for full semester classes will be processed after the second week of class (see calendar for other session deadlines, i.e., 8 week classes). There are exceptions involving approved section switches (i.e., ENGWR 300 for ENGWR 101, SPAN 101 for SPAN 401, etc.) or extenuating circumstances (i.e., accident, illness, family death) that prevented a student from processing the necessary paperwork. Student petition forms for late adds are available at the Admissions & Records offices and online.
