How to Register


Registration Information

Once a student has submitted an admissions application to the college and has participated in the placement and orientation process, the next step is to officially register (enroll) in specific classes through Self-Service.

Information on Adding a Class After the Start of the Semester

To add classes at Grossmont, you must attend the class and obtain an Add Authorization from the instructor. The Admissions and Records Office does not give Add Authorizations to students, as they are only obtained from the instructor. There are specific deadlines for adding classes. All deadlines are published on the Academic Calendar.

Information on Waitlisting a Class

Do not wait until the first day of the semester to get into a class that is full. Put yourself on the waitlist and be first in line to fill a vacated spot! Waitlisting through Self-Service allows students to electronically "wait in line" for the next available space.

During the registration period, students may place themselves on the waitlists for specific classes which are filled. Students on the waitlist will be notified if vacancies occur and they are registered into the class, and will receive an email. Make sure we have your correct email address on file with the college

Some things to remember when wait listing a class:

  • Self-Service checks for schedule conflicts for waitlisted courses, do not put yourself on the waitlist for a class that meets at the same time or overlaps with a class for which you are already registered. 
  • Self-Service checks for completed prerequisites, do not waitlist for a class unless you have submitted the proper paperwork. Visit the Prerequisite Clearance Information page for additional information.
  • You cannot be added into a class from the waitlist if you are already registered in another section of the same class.
  • You will not be able to add the class; if doing so will put you over the limit of units for the semester or session you are waitlisted for. You may file a completed and approved Unit Overload which requires the signature of a counselor to the Admissions & Records office to register.
  • Other blocks may prevent you from registering for a class. Any other blocks will be identified when you try to register. After any blocks have been identified and cleared you will be able to add the waitlisted class.
  • Beginning the first day of a class, the instructor controls who is registered from the waitlist.


Dropping/Withdrawal from a Class

Withdrawal from a class shall be authorized through 75% of the semester. Students may drop classes through Self-Service. It is the student's responsibility to officially drop a class. Failure to withdraw/drop a class by the dates posted in the class schedule or webpage will result in failing (F) grade. If you need to drop a course, please refer to the class schedule or the Academic Calendar for important drop deadlines.
