Priority Registration

Students with disabilities are offered priority registration, which is typically held the first week of regular registration. 

Priority registration is offered for the following reasons:

  1. Course locations can be selected for those with ambulatory difficulties.
  2. Classes with support labs (e.g. in Developmental Studies) can be selected.
  3. Students who require specialized transportation can receive workable schedules.
  4. Medication schedules can be considered.
  5. Sufficient lead time is provided to the Disability Support Services Office for the hiring of student assistants (e.g. interpreters, notetakers/scribes, and tutors).
  6. Student learning styles may be considered in course and instructor selection.

Payment Deadlines

The deadline to pay for classes are posted in a separate article. If you are dropped, you can try to re-register if seats are still available.
