Individual registration appointments are emailed to all continuing students before the first day of registration for the coming semester. Appointments are assigned on the basis of a declared academic program (major) and the number of Ohlone College units earned toward that program. In line with State regulations, continuing students lose their registration priority if they are in probationary or dismissal status for two consecutive semesters or they have earned more than 100 degree-applicable units. An appeal process (PDF) is available to students who lose registration priority.

- Meet with a Counselor to decide which courses to take.
- Follow-up with a Counselor to decide on an academic program, develop a Student Education Plan (SEP), declare a major, develop transfer and career goals, or take other steps toward meeting personal educational objectives.
