How to Register for Classes

Registration depends on your student type and educational plans. See below for your student type and find out how to register with priority status.

Current Students

You must meet with your advisor on Advising Day or during advising week to plan your classes and receive your registration PIN. You are expected to contact your advisor BEFORE Advising Day to set up an advising appointment. After meeting with your advisor, visit Student Web Services to access your registration time, login, and register for classes. IMPORTANT: If you do not meet with your advisor each quarter, you will lose your priority registration status.

New & Transfer Students

After you take your placement test, you will be sent an invitation for the next Advising & Registration Fair to meet with an advisor to plan and register for classes. You must contact Enrollment Services right away to make your appointment for the fair. Your attendance is very important! It is your step to priority registration for future quarters. If you do not attend an Advising & Registration Fair, you must come to Enrollment Services to register for classes during open registration. Or you may download and complete the Class Registration Form (pdf), and fax the signed form to Enrollment Services at 360.330.7503 or scan and email the signed form to admissions@centralia.edu. Be aware, you will not receive priority registration for future quarters.

Returning Students

After you complete and submit your Returning Student Form, you will be sent an email that includes your registration time. Before registering, you must see the advisor you were assigned when you last attended Centralia College. After meeting with your advisor, you must come to Enrollment Services to register for classes during your registration time. If you forget or need a different advisor, contact the Counseling/Career Center at (360) 736-9391, ext. 265 or advising@centralia.edu. If you do not meet with your advisor, you must come to Enrollment Services to register for classes during open registration. Or you may download and complete the Class Registration Form (pdf), and fax the signed form to Enrollment Services at 360.330.7503 or scan and email the signed form to admissions@centralia.edu. Be aware, you will not receive priority registration for future quarters.

Online Students

After applying for admission, new and returning students who plan to register for online classes only should contact Enrollment Services at (360) 736-9391, ext. 221 or admissions@centralia.edu.

Drop-in Students

If you want to take a class or two for personal enrichment, you do not need to apply for admission. Once the Class Schedule is available, you can register for evening courses, Continuing & Community Education classes, or Centralia College East courses. For all other courses, you can register starting on the first day of open registration. Simply download and complete the Class Registration Form (pdf), and send your completed form, along with a check, money order, or credit card number to the address listed on the bottom of the form (no cash please). Mail-in registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. If the class is filled, payment will be returned to you.

Priority Registration

Students with priority registration status have the advantage of choosing and registering for classes before students without priority status. You can earn priority registration status by completing these important steps:
New and transfer students must attend an Advising & Registration Fair.
Current and returning students must meet with their assigned advisor on Advising Day or during advising week.
Students without priority registration status can gain priority status after earning 35 college-level credits at Centralia College. Students must contact Enrollment Services at (360) 736-9391, ext. 221 or admissions@centralia.edu and request this change. Eligible students will be assigned an advisor and changed to priority registration status.
