Priority Registration: How you make the list

Students associated with certain campus programs have the privilege of early registration for classes ahead of other students.

Among the groups identified for priority early registration are students in the Honors Program, the Puente project, student government and Student Success in Retention Services. Aside from these groups, the date for registration depends on how many units a student has accrued, Stacy Cook, De Anza College vice president of Student Services said.

Recipients of Extended Opportunities Programs and Services, veterans, Disability Support Services and students with up to 118-120 units are allowed to register first during the continuing group.

However, students with more than 120 units “go last during the continuing cycle,” she said.

“We try to create some equity, so that students have equal chances for getting classes. Continuing students have preference. On the other hand, I want to make sure other students also have chances to take units,” Cook said. “The idea is for students to take units according to their educational goals, such as to earn a degree, or transfer or graduate. In this regard, we definitely want students to follow their educational plans, while they can take some classes in addition to those required for their educational goals.”

Fewer than 1,500 to 2,500 students on average are allowed to register for classes earlier; 800 EOPS students and over 250 vets are among them.

Admission and Registration office staff would not give out any additional information.

The De Anza Associated Student Body Senate is compiling its own list of programs they believe should earn early registration, said Natasha Asar, head of the DASB committee for Student Rights and Services. She named the Honors program as one of the programs that the committee will include on the list.

“The list will not be ready earlier than in three or four months, as the committee has other priorities,” Asar said.
