Will a student who graduates from high school in May or June be able to submit their AB 540 Form 2 to 3 months before graduation for the Summer/Fall registration period?

Even though we cannot accept AB 540 forms from students until after they have graduated from high school, students can still register for summer and/or fall semesters during registration priority in April.  The registration fees charged will temporarily include non-resident fees.  Students do not have to pay these fees at the time of registration and should opt for the defer/pay fees later option.  After high school graduation, students may submit the AB540 forms to the Admissions & Records Offices, and if the student meets the AB540 requirements, the non-resident fees will be reversed and removed from their account.


If a high school senior has not heard if they are accepted at a university, or they have not decided on whether to attend SRJC, should they still register for classes for summer/fall in April?

Yes, it's best for high school students to reserve a seat in classes just in case they decide to come to SRJC.  Students don't have to pay any fees right away, and if something changes, they can drop the SRJC classes before school starts with no penalty.  


Will classes still have waitlists?

Yes, many classes will have a wait list. Students can reserve a seat on a wait list during their priority registration or during open registration.

Can I appeal if I do not receive a priority registration appointment?

Yes. An appeals policy and process is available for students who:

  • Lose enrollment priority due to extenuating circumstances-documentation must be attached.

  • Are enrolled in a high unit major.

  • Are disabled and applied for but did not receive timely reasonable accommodations-requires approval from the Disability Resource Department (DRD) Dean.

Can I register for a course if the prerequisite course is a class I am currently in but have not completed yet?

Yes, if a student is currently enrolled in the prerequisite course at SRJC, they may register for the next course before final grades are posted.  Beginning with summer and fall registration, if a student is taking the course at another college, they will need to submit a Prerequisite Equivalency Form, attaching proof that they are currently enrolled in the class. Students will be required to provide an official transcript once they have completed the course at the college. Once grades are posted for the current semester, students will be dropped from the course if they do not pass the prerequisite class with a grade of “C” or higher or if they fail to provide proof of course completion at another institution before the semester begins.
