Priority Registration Appointments

The California Community Colleges Board of Governors approved system-wide enrollment priorities that will provide priority to students who make progress toward their educational goals. Porterville College as part of this concerted effort to improve student success recognizes that students who complete all Student Success steps of orientation, placement, counseling/advising and student educational plans are more likely of obtaining their academic goals.

The policy is designed to ensure classes are available for students seeking job training, degree attainment or transfer to a four-year college and to allow priority to students who are making progress toward their educational goals. These students will obtain special priority registration appointments in order to ensure they can successfully obtain their academic goals. Students who have attempted less than 100 units will be allowed to register earlier than those with over 100 units attempted (excluding units in Basic English, Basic math or English as a Second Language).


For their first semester of registration, students who receive earlier appointments will have completed orientation, placement and counseling/advising. In the succeeding semester, students will also be required to have completed their Student Educational Plan. The order of appointment assignments is as follows:

  • Foster Youths, Veterans, DSPS, EOPS and CalWorks 
  • Dean's List, President's Scholar, Re-entry Scholar, Student Ambassadors and Athletes
  • Continuing students with less than 100 units earned, followed by all other matriculated continuing students
  • New students not included above

Students who have not completed all four Student Success components or steps will be assigned appointments during the first few days of open registration based on the date of admissions/update forms completion.
