Priority registration is the ability to register early for the upcoming semester. In order to qualify, students must do the following:
Enroll in an Educational Planning course and complete an SEP.
Complete all matriculation components including orientation, placement and counseling.
Students on disqualification must see a counselor.
Continued students who were registered on Monday of the 3rd week of classes are assigned early registration appointments for the following semester in the following order:
Students who belong to specific groups or special programs and who have completed matriculation.
Students who have completed orientation, placement, counseling, and have a student educational plan on file in descending order of the number of units completed, except that students who have completed 45 to 68 units will be first.
High School seniors who have completed the early registration process.
Note: Students who have already earned a degree at Bakersfield College are eligible to register after students who have earned 45-60 units at BC. Students who have already earned a bachelor's degree or higher are eligible to register after priority registration has completed - during open registration.
