Don’t forget to Save Your Spot!

The Spring 2016 priority enrollment period has begun, and will continue through Dec. 12. That means current students have the opportunity to choose classes for next semester between now and then, depending on your priority date. Registering for classes the target date ensures current students the absolute best chance of getting the classes you want and need this coming Spring Semester!

If you do not take advantage of the priority enrollment period, then you will have to wait until general enrollment, which occurs later in the month of December and into January. Waiting until then will make it much more difficult to sign up for the classes your want and need.

To learn of your priority enrollment date, log into your eServices account and check your email. It was sent to you by the Los Rios District on Nov. 12.

So, take advantage of this opportunity and Save Your Spot!
