The California Community Colleges Board of Governors approved changes that will establish system-wide enrollment priorities designed to ensure classes are available for students seeking job training, degree attainment or transfer and to reward students who make progress toward their educational goals.

I. What are the new criteria?

1. Students must matriculate - complete Mathematics and English assessment (or provide approved alternative), and complete college orientation & advisement.
2. Students must have an education plan.
3. Continuing students must be in good academic standing (2.0 G.P.A.) and have not exceeded 100 units (not including units in basic English, basic Math or English as a Second Language). We encourage students on probation to seek help to improve their academic standing. Students nearing 100 units should carefully plan their remaining courses.

II. Will students who currently get priority, based on California Community College regulations continue to get priority?

Active-duty military and veterans, current and former foster youth, followed by students in Extended Opportunity Programs and Services and Disabled Students Programs and Services will continue to have first priority for registration if they meet the same criteria listed above.

III. What if I don't meet the new criteria?

Students that don't meet the above criteria will enroll after the students who have earned priority.

IV. What if I am a concurrently enrolled high school student?

California Community College regulations require that concurrently enrolled high school students receive a low enrollment date so as not to displace adult students.
