Students receive a priority registration number based on the total number of units completed and the completion of the matriculation requirements of assessment, orientation, and seeing a counselor. Students who have fewer units or may not have completed all of the matriculation requirements will receive a lower priority number. In addition, by law the college is required to grant priority registration to military veterans and students in the EOPS and DRC programs.
If you have more units completed than your friend, but you have a later registration time, it is probably because your friend completed the matriculation requirements of taking the assessment, attending orientation and seeing a counselor and you did not. Or, your friend might be a military veteran or in the EOPS or DRC programs which the college by law is required to grant priority registration to.
Yes. By law, the college is required to grant priority registration to military veterans, and students in the EOPS and DRC programs.
No. You can register any time after your registration day/time, but if you wait you are essentially giving up your priority registration time to another student. The longer you wait, the more likely the classes you want will be filled. You cannot, however, register before your scheduled registration day/time.
You can find your registration time by logging into "MyBanWeb" on the college website at www.portervillecollege.edu and follow the instructions to get to your registration day/time. A counselor can also assist you.
