How to Register for Classes

Please note: In order to register for classes at Coastline Community College, you must first apply. You can complete your application online at

You may register for classes on or after your assigned appointment time. To register for classes, log in to MyCCC and follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Registration link on the left navigation bar.
  2. Under Registration Tools, click on "Add or Drop Classes."
  3. Select a term (ex: CCC Fall 2019) then click "Submit".
  4. Enter Course Reference Numbers (CRNs) from the online searchable schedule, then click on "Finalize Add/Drop."
  5. If a course requires enrollment in two sections, i.e., a lecture and a lab, both CRNs must be entered at the same time. NOTE: You are not enrolled in classes until you click on "Finalize Add/Drop."
  6. After you have clicked on "Finalize Add/Drop" and you have verified your registration, click on "Pay Now" to pay your fees.

*To ensure enrollment, register early and check the last day to add a course on the online searchable schedule.

Dropping Classes

When dropping classes via your MyCCC, it is very important that you click on "Finalize Add/Drop" after you enter the CRN in which you wish to drop. If you do not click on "Finalize Add/Drop," your drop transaction will not be completed, which may result in an "F" or "NP" grade.

Late Registration – Distance Learning

Students who are not able to register in Distance Learning Classes by the Monday of the week the class starts, must email the instructor and ask for an Add Authorization Code (AAC). If the instructor provides an AAC, log in to MyCCC to add the course. You may look up an instructors contact email on the Directory webpage.

Late Registration – On Site Classes

Students who fail to register for on-site classes prior to the day of the week that the class starts, must attend the first class meeting and ask the instructor for a "Permit to Add" Card along with an Add Authorization Code (AAC). If the instructor gives you an Add Permit, follow the directions on the permit to get officially registered in the class.

NOTE: You must have a registration appointment in order to enroll in classes. Students are not allowed to attend class after the first week without being officially registered in the class. Students are cautioned that late enrollment into a class may severely affect successful completion and does not excuse students from making up missed work. Grades or course credit will not be given to students who do not officially register by the course deadline. Late enrollment does not waive or extend refund or other deadlines.

Students who register for classes after the term begins WILL NOT be dropped for non-payment.

Closed Classes

Closed Classes: If a class does not have seats available on the online searchable class schedule, the class has reached maximum capacity. It's recommended that you continue to check the seating availability on the online searchable schedule, since classes sometimes reopen during the active registration period (until the course starts).

The Coast District utilizes wait lists for closed classes!

How wait lists works: If a class is closed, you may register yourself on the wait list anytime on or after your registration appointment time. If a seat becomes available in that course, the next student on the wait list will be notified via their MyCCC student email. Students will then have 24 hours to register and pay for the class or they will be dropped from the wait list and the next student on the wait list will be notified.

Beginning the week the class begins: Check the status of the class on the Class Schedule available on the Coastline Community College website.

If the class status is "Open" you may enroll into the class.

If the class status is "Waitlisted" you may add yourself to the waitlist. You should then go to the first class meeting (or subsequent class meeting) to request an add permit (ex: Class meets M & W, you missed the Monday class meeting, then go to the Wednesday class meeting)

If the class status is "Auth Reqd" go to the first class meeting (or subsequent class meeting) to request an add permit (ex: Class meets M & W, you missed the Monday class meeting, then go to the Wednesday class meeting)

Add Permits/Instructor Permission: Effective "the day the class begins". Instructor permission is required to add a class. To obtain instructor permission go to the first class meeting or email the instructor if the course is an online course. If space is available, the instructor may give you an ADD PERMIT with an ADD AUTHORIZATION CODE (AAC). Enroll in the course via MyCCC following the instructions on the add permit.

NOTE: the registration system will not prompt you for an ADD AUTHORIZATION CODE (AAC) until the course begins.

Fee Payment and Registration Verification

Pay fees even if you have financial aid. Fees are due immediately and should be submitted within 48 hours and received within five business days. Coastline College does not bill for unpaid registrations. If payments are not received, students MAY be dropped from classes to make seats available for other students seeking to register. If you receive financial aid, you still need to make sure that your fee balance is paid within 48 hours (that you have a zero balance due) or you may be dropped from all your classes.

Verify your registration and print your receipt/detail class schedule. Once you register online and pay your fees, you may print confirmation of your payment and a Detail Class Schedule showing the course information for the courses you registered for. Always double-check your registration to make sure it is accurate! This is the time to make sure you registered in the correct course(s)!

Textbook Purchases

Buy your books. Bring a copy of your Detail Class Schedule with you to the bookstore to help you find the books or go online to purchase your textbooks.

Attend Class

Go to class! If you miss the first day of class, your seat may be given away to another student. If you enrolled in an online class, log in to the class via the "My Courses" link in your MyCCC portal on the first day of the semester! If you don't log on during the first week of class, you might be dropped!

Check Your E-mail

Check your e-mail again after you submit your application. You'll receive a follow-up e-mail regarding the status of your application. If you do not receive an e-mail within five to ten working days of submitting your application, contact the Admissions Office.
