Don't Forget To Register

This article appeared in the June 18, 2019, issue of the student newsletter.

We're in the middle of the summer now, which means it's a perfect time to register for your Fall classes. 

Registration has been open to all students since April, but you've still got plenty of time. You can register for Fall semester credit classes until Wednesday, Aug. 21. (The semester begins Monday, Aug. 26.) 

On top of that, once you register, you can add or drop classes until the semester begins. But keep in mind, you can negatively affect your GPA if you drop too many classes. 

How To Register 

There are two ways to register: You can do so online (if you are eligible — eConnect login required) or you can register on campus. Check out your college's website to find when and where you can register, as that varies through the colleges of DCCCD. 

If you are new to the district, we recommend that you register in person at the college you plan to attend so you can get information on topics like tuition, prerequisites, degrees options and the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). 

You must complete the application, pre-advising, assessment and advising process before you can register for classes. Make sure you've also gotten your meningitis vaccination. 

Flex Classes 

If regular, semester-length classes don't work for you, check out DCCCD's Flex Term classes. 

With Flex Term classes, you aren't burdened with following a regular semester schedule if that doesn't fit your schedule. You can also register for Flex Term classes year-round. The lengths of the classes vary.
