        Note: All new and returning students must complete the online application. Returning students must also re-apply if they have not enrolled for at least one year. For international students, click here for application.

    2. Claim Your Account: All students must activate and claim their new Mt. SAC online accounts (click here for instructions) to register for classes. After you apply, you will receive a confirmation e-mail message with account activation instructions and a username to get you started.

    3. Get Assessed: Schedule and take your course placement tests at the Assessment Center. Call (909) 274-4265 to make an appointment. Many classes have basic skill prerequisites that must be assessed prior to registration. You must complete your assessment after your application for admission has been processed and before your orientation and registration date.

    4. Attend Orientation: Attend an orientation session. Both new students and first-time transfer students from other colleges must attend orientation before registering for classes unless otherwise exempted. To schedule an appointment, call ext. 4380.

    5. Get Counseling: Our trained counselors can help you:
      • Select a major and choose a career
      • Develop an educational plan that supports your major
      • Choose a university or college for transfer
      • Address any personal problems that impact your college success.

        Call the Counseling Center at ext. 4380.

      Note: Students must print out a copy of their registration appointment as proof of their priority registration date. Students will not be allowed to register before their assigned date and time!
      In preparation for registration, we suggest that you:
      • Prepare a tentative class schedule using the Schedule Planning Worksheet provided in the online addendum of the current Schedule of Classes.
      • Check for course prerequisites and corequisites, making sure you have satisfied the requirements.

        If you need access to a computer or help registering online, please visit the Student Services Center (9B).
    1. Pay Your Fees: All fees are due upon registration. Students who remain enrolled after the course refund deadline remain financially responsible for payment of fees even if they drop the class or are dropped by their instructor. The Bursar’s Office accepts cash, credit cards, money orders, personal checks, business checks, Rehab vouchers and cashier’s checks. Payments may be made online, by mail, in person or through drop box. See Paying for College for complete listing of fees and financial aid information.
