How to register for classes
You are now ready to register and successfully complete courses through
Chaffey College. Please follow the steps below:
Be sure all your application materials are completed through the online application. If you are a high school student, please visit the high school partnership program webpage so that you can read all the information that you will need to know. Current high school students need to complete different documentation than the regular college student that has graduated from high school. When your completed application
to the college is submitted, you will receive an email
confirmation showing that your application was submitted. Within 24 hours you will receive another email with your student ID#, your registration date, and instructions on how to register online.
If you have received this information, you are ready for the next step.
Write a list of courses that you are considering for your first
term at Chaffey. This list will include courses from your assessment
results, general education patterns, and/or courses to complete your
major. Review the information in the previous sections for ideas on
courses to select from.
Find your desired courses in the Chaffey College Schedule of Classes.
The Schedule of Classes lists start dates, times, instructors’ names,
locations, and course descriptions. Using your list of courses select
the class(es) you plan to take and choose times, locations, and starting
dates that will work for you. Write this information down. The section number is critical, so be sure you write down the
correct number for each class. This is the five-digit number listed
in the schedule in the left margin that precedes each course listing.
This number is used by the computer to enroll you in the desired class(es). Please make sure to be mindful of prerequisites and corequisites.
When possible, list alternate courses in the event the course you
desire is filled at the time you register. This may mean having to
take the same course at a different time and/or location. Be sure the
alternate time and location will work for you. You may not find an
alternate date and time for the same course, so consider taking a different
course altogether that fits with your desired time and location. In
either case, be sure to write down all the aforementioned information
ahead of time so that you are not fumbling with the schedule of classes
while online registering for your class(es).
Go online a few hours before or the night before your registration
date to check the open class list. This will help minimize the confusion
when you actually go online. View the open class list to determine which
classes on your list are still available. This is a great time to revise
your schedule and get ready to register with the current information
on the availability of classes. Go to www.chaffey.edu/openclass for
the open class list.
You are permitted to go onto My Chaffey VIEW on the day and time of your registration. If you miss your registration date, you may register online anytime thereafter while the registration system is
Students that register online have the opportunity to get current
information about the availability of open classes at the same time
that they register. You can check on courses from the list to see if
they are open while the computer gives you alternative sections of
the same course if it is full.
Enter User Name (First initial of First Name and Last Name and Chaffey
Enter Password ( six digit birthdate), if it is the first time logging on.
You will then be prompted to choose a New Password (must be 6-9 characters; both letters and
numbers). It is recommended that you fill out the "Hint" just in case you forget your password.
* To view Registration and Schedule information select "Registration."
If a class you want to register for is closed you have the option
of getting on a waiting list. Waiting lists are used by instructors
to fill vacancies in a class on the first day of instruction when students
that are enrolled in the course fail to show up or if the instructor
decides to take more than the limit posted for the course. In any case,
it is up to the instructor. The higher your ranking on the waiting
list, the better your chances of getting into the course. To add a
course, you must obtain an add code from the instructor. The instructions on how to use the add code is listed on the back of the add code sheet.
After the registration period is over, you can still
register during the late registration period. All classes, whether open or closed, need an add code beginning the first week of school. You will need to go to the class when it meets and get an add code from the instructor. Late registration is the first two weeks of school. Please check the deadlines for adding classes which are listed
on the Academic Calendar in the schedule of classes or online at www.chaffey.edu.
After you have registered online, you must pay your
fees to complete the registration process. Beginning Summer 2010, there will be a new payment deadline process.
***Prior to the beginning of the term, students will have 10 calendar days from the date of registration to submit payment. If payment is not received within 10 calendar days, the student will be dropped from their classes.
Beginning the first day of the semester, if the student adds classes during the Late Registration period, payment must be submitted the same day of registration. If not, a financial block will be applied to the student's record on that day which will impact their ability to add other classes or seek other services.
If you should decide that you do not want to complete a course
you have enrolled in, it is the responsibility of the student to drop the course. You can drop your course(s) on My ChaffeyVIEW. Please check the drop dates in the front of the schedule of classes. If you drop a full-term class before the last day to drop, then you will have no grade reported on your permanent record. If you
drop a full-term class after the last day to drop,
a grade of "W" is recorded on your permanent record. If you do not drop a class
before the drop deadline, the instructor will issue a grade for work
completed up through the last day that you attended. This too becomes
part of your permanent record. Be sure to check the schedule of classes
for deadlines to add and drop classes. Deadlines for paying fees are
listed on the Academic Calendar in the schedule of classes or online
at www.chaffey.edu. Please also see the refund policy in the schedule of classes.
Now is the time to come and complete your educational plan either through a workshop or a one-on-one with a counselor. Please call the Counseling Department so that we can set you up for the right appointment.
