Each semester, students are given an enrollment appointment date and time. This appointment time is the earliest time you can enroll in classes. Your individual enrollment appointment is based on a number of things, including your class level and how many units you’ve completed.

You will lose priority registration if you are on academic or progress probation and/or have completed 90 or more degree-applicable units within Los Rios.
