Need Priority Registration?
Congratulations for pursuing your educational goals at Las Positas College! In order to help you reach your goals, we encourage you to complete the three core services of orientation, assessment and a student education plan. By completing these core services, you will guarantee yourself priority registration!
Priority Registration Regulations
Priority registration allows you to register early so you can get into courses before they fill up. To be eligible, you must participate in orientation, complete the assessment process for math and English course placement, and develop a Student Education Plan with a counselor. This process will help you to clearly define your goals, stay on track, and take the most direct route to reach your goals!
In addition to completing the online orientation, the Math and English assessment and developing a student education plan, continuing students must also be in good academic standing and must not have exceeded 100 units. Continuing students who are on academic or progress probation, or dismissal status, and/or who have completed more than 100 units will be placed in a lower group for priority registration.
Active-duty military, veterans, current and former foster youth and homeless students will continue to have the highest priority for registration. Students in the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS and CARE), CalWORKs, and Disabled Students Programs and Services will also continue to have the highest priority.
Why is completing the 3 core services for priority registration an important step in your success?
LPC Student Services offices will be closed on Convocation and College Day for professional development but will reopen for online AND in person services on Wednesday, August 18th.
