First Year Registration

In collaboration with the First-Year Program (FYP) and Student Opportunities and Advising Hub (the Hub), the first-year student registration process begins with early summer advising. With guidance from their assigned Hub advisor, first year students will utilize CC’s degree progress planning and tracking platform, Stellic, to plan their schedules for their first four blocks (Fall semester) which includes a CC First-Year Foundations Seminars pairing of a CC100: Critical Inquiry Seminar in block one, and a CC120: First-Year Writing Seminar in either blocks two, three, or four. The remaining two blocks are regular block-seminars that may fulfill other requirements or interests.

First-Year Registration is then the formal process for which first-year students will be administratively registered for blocks 1 – 4 based on their Stellic plans. An announcement of placement results will be released from the New Student Orientation office (NSO) during the final week in July. Once announced, the live registration application, Add/Drop, will become available for Fall schedule changes. At this time, first-years may continue to make registration changes following the blockly registration deadlines to include swapping into a different course or staying registered in their current course and joining the waitlist of their most-preferred course option (only one waitlist per block allowed).

  •  First Year Registration for Fall 2022 is July 15 - July 27
  • Students will plan out their complete schedule for the upcoming Fall semester, blocks 1 - 4 and are encouraged to plan for their Spring semester as well, blocks 5 - 8 using Stellic as their planner tool.

  • Students must plan for a CC First-Year Foundations Seminars pairing; a CC100: Critical Inquiry Seminar in block 1 and a CC120: First-Year Writing Seminar which will be linked in either block 2, 3, or 4. First-Year students will be registered in a CC100/120 course pairing based on their Stellic plan or randomly assigned to an available CC100/120 if not planned.

  • Students must be registered for a full schedule in the Fall; the remaining two blocks in the fall will be a regular block-seminar course that may fulfill other requirements and/or interests. Once registered, first-year students will have a schedule that reflects a minimum of 4 units.
  • Students' Spring selections will be saved in Stellic as a plan and may be submitted for processing during Spring Preregistration in the Fall (dates TBD).

  • Once the First-Year Registration period closes, a placement announcement will be shared from the NSO Office.

  • After the placement announcement, the live registration application, Add/Drop will open to first-years to make schedule changes for the Fall.
  • Make sure to plan for multiple preferences for each block in the Fall in Stellic to guaranteed registration placement into a course you want

  • Adjuncts may be added once the live Add/Drop registration application becomes available. First-Years are recommended to focus on adding block seminar courses during their planning period. 
  • Students who are interested in a course that requires consent (either COI or COD) should obtain these during their Stellic planning period and enter the provided PIN in the "Make a Note" area. These are consent requirements placed on a course by a department. the COD PIN will be obtained from the Department's Chair; the COI PIN will be obtained from the instructor/professor of the course. Alternatively, students can register for these when the live Add/Drop registration application becomes available and enter the appropriate PIN at that time.
  • Students who are interested in a course that require a prerequisite that they don't directly meet with the listed CC course (such as transfer coursework, AP/IB test scores, or other means) should obtain the COI PIN from the instructor/professor of the course and enter this PIN in the "Make a Note" area in Stellic. The instructor/professor consent PIN acts as an approval to override a prerequisite error. of the course to obtain their COI PIN which will act as their prerequisite override approval. Alternatively, students can register for these when the live Add/Drop registration application becomes available and enter the appropriate PIN at that time.
  • Students who are taking time off: one or more block off, will need to contact their Hub advisor to process the official form. First-years and Sophomore students must be granted permission from the Student Opportunities and Advising Hub (the Hub) to take a block off. See Student Leave Policy.
