Early (Priority) Registration

Bakersfield College recognizes that students who complete all enrollment steps (Orientation, Placement, Testing, Advising and Counseling, and abbreviated and comprehensive Student Educational Plan) are more likely to reach their academic goals. These students are given special registration priority appointments. In order to ensure that students who are progressing successfully toward those academic goals have the opportunity to continue that progress, students who have attempted less than 100 units will be allowed to register earlier than those with over 100 units attempted. For their first semester of registration, students who receive earlier appointments will have completed these enrollment steps. The order of appointment assignments will be as follows:

  1. Priority 1: Active-duty military, veterans, foster youth*, former foster youth**, DSPS, EOP&S/CalWORKs
  2. Priority 2: Honors students, Presidential Scholars, Dean's List, Student Athletes (Student groups noted for registration in Priority 2 are special populations designated by the colleges)
  3. Priority 3: Continuing students (excluding students on academic standing probation 2) with less than 100 units earned (excluding units in basic English, math, or English as a second language)
  4. Priority 4: Graduating high-school seniors in the KCCD service area
  5. First-term students not included above

*Foster youth is defined as a person who is currently in foster care
**Former foster youth is defined as a person who is an emancipated foster youth and who is up to 24 years of age

Continuing students who have not completed all four enrollment steps will be assigned appointments during the first few days of open registration based on the date they completed their admission/update forms.
