Schedule for Registration

Continuing students are assigned the earliest registration times and receive a registration appointment based on having a declared academic program (major) and by the number of Ohlone units earned toward that program. Registration appointments are e-mailed to students prior to the start of registration.

New and former students receive the next opportunity to register but do not receive specific appointments. New and former students cannot register for classes until they have completed the admission process.

10th-12th grade students will be able to register for classes approximately two weeks before the start of the term. 10th-12th grade students cannot register for classes until they have completed the admission process.

Kindergarten-9th grade students receive the last opportunity to register, starting the first day of the term. Kindergarten-9th grade students cannot register for classes until they have completed the admission process.
