PRIORITY REGISTRATION FOR SPRING 2023 WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 31ST, 2022.

PRIORITY REGISTRATION FOR SUMMER/FALL 2023 WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, MARCH 13TH, 2023.

Registration dates and times for each student will be automatically assigned by the registration system. The system will compute registration dates and times based upon variables associated with point values, and then will sort by student ID number. Registration dates and times will be set approximately 2 weeks before registration. No priority group or student will begin registration while the college is closed (i.e. after 4:00pm or on a weekend). Starting times will be distributed over the number of days allotted for a particular group with priority assigned from the highest points down to the lowest.

See the points table below to calculate point values.

Our registration system is set up so that you may enter the registration system anytime beginning on or after your assigned registration date and time. You can log into your online student account via Cougar Tracks to check your registration status, and assigned registration date and time. Once you log in, click on Students > Registration > Registration Status. If you miss your day and time, you may log into Cougar Tracks and register thereafter.
