Priority Group Registration

Barstow Community College provides priority registration for students who enroll for the purpose of degree or certificate attainment, transfer to a four-year college or university, or career advancement for the fall and spring semesters. Summer will not have a priority system for registration.

Priority registration shall only be granted to those students who have completed orientation, assessment, and developed a student education plan. Education plans must be updated at 15 completed units and 45 completed units for continued eligibility for priority registration. Higher priority will be granted to those students who indicated an education goal of:

  • Obtain an AA degree and transfer to a 4-year institution.
  • Transfer to a 4-year institution without an AA degree.
  • Obtain a two year vocational degree without transfer.
  • Earn a vocational certificate without transfer.
  • Improve basic skills in English, reading or math.

Completed units include all units evaluated and posted on the student’s BCC transcript.

Registration priority specified above shall be lost at the first registration opportunity after a student:

  • Is placed on academic or progress probation or any combination thereof as defined by Board Policy and Procedure 4250 for two consecutive terms; or
  • Has earned one hundred (100) or more degree-applicable units; or
  • Has earned a degree.

For this section a unit is earned when a student receives a grade of A, B, C, D, or P as defined in Board Policy and Procedure 4230.
