Do You Have Priority Registration?

Registration begins Friday, do you have Priority Registration?

The purpose of priority registration dates is to help ensure that you can get the classes you need to graduate on time. Currently enrolled students in college level programs of study will be able to register first!

Note that if you are on Academic Probation you will not be able to register for classes until the current semester grades are posted. This means that you will not be able to take advantage of priority registration. Students on Academic Warning must see their advisor to be able to register.

You will receive your assigned registration date through your CPCC email account. Check your email for your registration date and plan ahead to register as soon as possible for the best course selection!

Attention Students: Is the Class You Wanted Full?

Is the Class You Wanted Full?

Is the Class You Wanted Full?

Did you know that you are probably eligible to take other general education courses? For example, many students believe that History 131 must be completed before they can take History 132. In fact, a student can take either course. The same is true for HIS 111 and 112, English 231 and English 232, ART 114 and 115 and a whole host of other options.

Students can see if a course has prerequisites, as well as other important information, by checking the course catalog here. Good places to look are:

  • Course descriptions, to see if a given course has prerequisites (pgs. 220 forward)
  • General education course options, to see what may be available for you to take (pgs. 182 & 183)
  • Transfer Degree course options, if you’re looking to transfer to a senior institution (pgs. 190-203)

Also, if you’re looking to transfer, you might find an AA (Associate in Arts) checklist helpful, which you can find here.

If unsure of which general education course is required for your degree, or if you’ve met the correct prerequisite, please consult your faculty or professional advisor. You can find your assigned faculty advisor here.
