WebReg Priority Registration for Spring 2017

Important District Message: Beneath the priority charts (below) is a district wide announcement entitled "Priority Registration Changes: Effective Fall 2014" regarding new changes to priority registration that took effect in Fall 2014. Please read it for important information that affects our MPC students. For the Appeals Process, please see below as well.

Priority registration: Students may register 24 hours per day, beginning on their priority registration day. We encourage all students to check their WebReg portal for their Registration Priority. 

Priority registration for continuing students will be based upon the number of units completed at Monterey Peninsula College and the in-progress units for the current semester. Units completed at other institutions will not be considered. EOPS, DSPS, Foster Youth, Veteran students, TRiO, and student athletes have separate priority registration dates.

Continuing students are students enrolled at MPC during Fall 2016.
Returning students are students who enrolled at MPC previously, but not Fall 2016.
New and new transfer students are students who have never enrolled at MPC.
Concurrent enrollment students are students who are currently in grades 6 – 12.
Open Registration: Once Open Registration begins all students may register 24 hours per day, including holidays.

District Announcement:

Priority Registration Changes: Effective Fall 2014

The California Community Colleges Board of Governors has approved a new regulation that requires Monterey Peninsula College and all other California community colleges to implement changes in priority registration by the fall of 2014. The changes will establish system-wide enrollment priorities designed to ensure classes are available for students seeking job training, degree attainment or transfer and to reward students who make progress toward their educational goals.

New students who have completed college orientation, assessment and developed educational plans as well as continuing students in good academic standing who have not exceeded 100 units (not including basic English, English as a Second Language and Math) will have an earlier priority registration date than students who do not meet these criteria.

The regulations, unanimously approved by the board of governors, will be implemented in the fall of 2014. We encourage students on probation to seek help to improve their academic standing. Students nearing 100 units should carefully plan their remaining courses.

Veterans, current and former foster youth, Disabled Students Programs and Services and students in Extended Opportunity Programs will continue to have the highest priorities for registration if they meet the same criteria listed above.

If you have questions, please contact the Admissions & Records Office.

Priority Registration Appeals Process:

Students may petition the Academic Council for loss of priority under the following two criteria:

1. Extenuating circumstance:
Extenuating circumstance is defined as verified cases of accidents, illnesses or other circumstances beyond the control of the student [58108(k)].

2. Significant Improvement:
If loss of priority is due to academic or progress probation/dismissal it may be reinstated through the petition process by demonstrated significant academic improvement for a subsequent term. The minimum standards for significant academic improvement for a subsequent term is defined by 55031, where a student must earn at a minimum a 2.0 grade point average for the term and complete more than 50% of the units attempted for the term. 

With two noted exceptions:
Foster Youth do not lose priority.
Students with verified disabilities may petition the DSPS coordinator to reinstate their priority, if lost, as a disability accommodation.
