Priority Enrollment Information
Enrollment Priority Philosophy
Our philosophy is one of student success in that we want to set students up to achieve their goal as efficiently as possible. priority is given to those students who are close to graduation or transfer, while at the same time, ensuring that new students have a schedule that starts them off on the right foot.
Calculation of units should include cumulative units completed at SMC + units In-Progress (IP).
Enrollment should be based on units as follows:
a. Special Programs as determined by California State Ed Code
b. 60-30 units completed + IP (in descending order 60-59-58-57....30)
c. 89-61 units completed + IP (in descending order 89-88-87-86...61)
d. 29-1 units completed + IP (in descending order 29-28-27-26...1)
e. 90 units or more completed + IP (in ascending order 90-91-92-93...)
Their enrollment begins approximately 10 days after the continuing student enrollment begins. New student priorities
are based on application date and their completion of the Assessment tests
and online Orientation
. Beginning with the second regular semester, students will be assigned priority as continuing students (as outlined above).
High School Concurrent Enrollment Students:
They do not receive enrollment priority. They enroll after regularly matriculated students. Enrollment date assigned to High School Students will be approximately 3-4 weeks before the term begins.
