Summer and Fall Registration Is Now Open to Everyone

This article appeared in an April 2018, issue of the student newsletter.

Priority registration has come and gone, but you still have time to register for not only Maymester but also Summer- and Fall-semester classes. That's right — you can set your class schedule for the rest of 2018! 

And even more good news ... there are plenty of options available to you. Let's get the basics out of the way first: 

How Do I Register?

There are two ways for you to register: 

  1. You can register online on eConnect.

  2. You can register in person at one of our main college campuses and at some community campuses. (If you choose to register in person, remember all our locations are closed May 28 for Memorial Day and July 4 for Independence Day, so enjoy the sun instead.)

For more registration information, go to dcccd.edu/SummerFall18. 

Payment Information

For credit classes, the date your tuition will be due depends on when you register. Register early to get the best selection of classes. If you register for Flex Term classes, your tuition is due before the class starts. 

We've got you covered on when, where and who you need to pay. 

Flex Term Registration

Don't have time for regular courses? Flex Term classes might be the perfect option for you! 

Flex Term classes offer you more flexibility with your schedule because you can register throughout the year. Flex Term classes vary in length and how often the class meets. If that sounds like it best fits your schedule, check out the browsable class schedule to see options for Flex Term classes. 

Important Dates

Maymester classes typically begin in mid-May and last a few weeks. They are included in the Summer semester schedule, which means you can start building your Maymester schedule right now in the browsable class schedule
