When to Register and Where

Find your registration window by logging in to MyCoast PortalRegistration > Registration Status & Checklist, then select the term to view your appointment. You can register for classes at any point on and after your window opens, either online or at one of our events.  

Whether you completed the priority registration steps or not, you can still sign-up for classes online. There are two options for you to add classes: 1. using Schedule Planner or 2. using the Add or Drop Classes link. Both of these options are found via  MyCoast Portal > Registration.

If you need more help with registering, we have resources available for you including:

Registration Terms

Synchronous: classes that are scheduled similarly to in-person classes, meaning students will be required to sign in at a specific time. 

Asynchronous: This format is like a traditional online course- students are assigned work and given deadlines to complete work, but doesn’t necessarily require logging in at any particular time.

Hybrid: Classes that require some level of hands-on instruction — such as career training labs, science labs, activity classes in athletics and the arts — will be scheduled on campus, as so noted with a classroom assignment. See the Online Class Descriptions link in the left menu bar.

OCC ONLINE: This class is fully online and does not require in-person synchronously scheduled time. Students must email the instructor by Wednesday of the first week of class.

OCC LIVEONLINE: Similar to an in-person class with set meeting times, this class is offered synchronously using ConferZoom, Canvas Conference, or other synchronous technology during the scheduled time. Students should use a computer/laptop with administrator rights. PC (Windows 7 or 10) or Mac (OSX Mojave or higher). Caution - Mobile phones may not be sufficient.

OCC ONLINE/OCC LIVEONLINE with HY code: This class is online and does require a portion of the class to be in-person with a synchronously scheduled time (see schedule). Students must email the instructor by Wednesday of the first week of class.

​Common Errors and Problems When Adding Classes

  • Corequisite Error: A corequisite is a course that must accompany another course in the same semester (usually a lecture and lab). To avoid this error, add both classes at the same time.

  • Cohort Error: This means that the CRN that you are trying to add is related to a cohort class/program. You must be part of the cohort/program in order to add the class.

  • Holds: We recommend that you call the number listed next to your hold as early as possible to take care of the problem.
