Students with more than 90 degree-applicable units completed within the Los Rios Community College District and students with two consecutive terms of probation or dismissal will no longer be eligible for priority registration. Affected students will register during Open Registration.

First-time college students are required to complete all pre-enrollment steps (Steps to Success) by established deadlines.  These steps are Orientation, Assessment, and Education Planning with a counselor.  Students who do not complete these Steps to Success and lose their priority registration status will register during Open Registration.  

Some students are exempt from the pre-enrollment process such as students who have earned an Associate degree or higher OR a student enrolling in fewer than 12 units and have declared an educational objective such as Acquire Job Skills, Maintain Certificate or License, or Discover/Formulate career interests. However, exempted students are certainly welcome to take advantage of these very important activities.

I am a first-time college student. When must I complete the Steps to Success to register during Priority 1 enrollment?

First-time college students must complete the Steps to Success by April 1 for summer/fall Priority 1 registration or by November 1 for spring Priority 1 registration. Meet the deadlines and we can guarantee Priority 1 enrollment. Otherwise, the best priority registration window you could expect to receive would be during Priority 2.

I normally register during Priority 0. Am I exempt?

No. Any student can lose his/her priority registration status by completing too many units in our college district, being placed on probation or dismissal for two consecutive terms, or failing to complete the Steps to Success (as a first-time college student after spring 2014).

Which classes are counted when determining if I have completed too many units?

Only coursework completed within the Los Rios Community College District will be considered. Additionally, only coursework that is degree-applicable will be counted in the 90-unit limit. Examples of classes that wouldn't be counted are Arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, English or Math Labs, Advanced Placement credit, and other college/university transfer credit.

Is there an appeal?

Yes, but grounds for a successful appeal are very limited and specific. Review the appeal form carefully and submit the completed form to the Admissions and Records Office. Please allow 2 working days. You will be notified by Los Rios Gmail. Appeals are specific to a registration cycle. This means that an affected student will need to submit an appeal for each registration cycle the he/she is in a loss of priority status.

Note: A successful appeal for loss of priority registration will also constitute as an approval for the reinstatement of fee waiver eligibility lost due to poor academic/progress performance.
