Continuing Students Steps for Enrollment - Admissions and Records

Continuing Students are students that were enrolled in the last Spring, Summer, or Fall term and are continuing into the next available semester. If you attend for Spring and decide not to register for Summer, you are still a continuing student for Fall. If you miss a Fall or Spring semester though, you need to go to the instructions for Former or Returning Students instead. If you've never applied to Ohlone College before, follow the instructions for New Students.

High school students that have not graduated should use the instructions for Dual Enrollment. High School students applying after graduating high school should use the instructions for New Students.

Step 1

Plan your courses with a counselor. Counselors will help you create an education plan for your degree, certificate, or transfer goals. You can make an appointment with the Counseling Office

Step 2

Look for your priority registration email approximately one month prior to the first date of registration. You can find the first day of registration for a term at When Do I Register.

If you aren't sure if you qualify for priority registration or have questions about the date you were assigned, you can speak with a counselor.

If you feel you should have an earlier priority registration date, you will need to complete the Loss of Enrollment Priority petition with a counselor.

Step 3

Check the Registration Readiness Dashboard in the WebAdvisor Students menu. It will show you any holds on your registration. You need to clear anything in red before your registration date.

Don't forget to update your Student Profile! You need to do this every semester before signing up for classes.

Step 4

Check the prerequisites for your planned classes. You can view prerequisites by clicking the class title in the online class schedule. If you completed a prerequisite course at another institution, you will need to meet with a counselor to clear the prerequisite before you can sign up for the class. For more information see Clearing Prerequisites.

Step 5

Pre-select your classes in WebAdvisor

Step 6

You can start registering for classes on your assigned registration day and time. If you miss the exact hour of your registration, don't worry. You can register from that time until registration for the term ends.

Step 7

Pay for your classes. Payment is due at the time of registration. As a courtesy, we allow up to five (5) days for you to make payment after registering. If payment is not received within that time, you may be dropped for non-payment. You can make payment online using the Pay on My Account option in WebAdvisor, or at the Cashier’s Office on Fremont Campus. You can find payment information.

To better understand your tuition and fees, please go to Fees.

Please note, if you choose not to take a class, it is your responsibility to drop that class. Do not rely on being dropped for non-payment to end your registration.

Step 8

Get ready for your classes. Verify your registration through the My Class Schedule link in the WebAdvisor Student menu. Here, you can view the classes you are registered for in each term. There is a link to view your required textbooks as well, if the instructor makes that information available prior to the start of class. If you want to change your schedule, you can find instructions for adding and dropping classes.

Please be aware that for full term classes, you cannot make changes to your schedule after the census date. You can find the census on the Academic Calendar.

For short term classes, you will need to check with your instructor or with Admissions and Records for the last day to add or drop a short term course. In most cases, the last day to make a change to a short term class on your schedule is the first day of the class term.
