New students should apply for admission in advance of registration, if possible.
The registration process works on a first-come, first served basis. For the best
selection of class sections and times, you should plan to register as early as
possible. All degree seeking students should consult with their counselor or
program advisor prior to registering in order to secure a signature on their course
request forms. Middle and Upper Keys residents can contact their local center for
information and assistance in these procedures. Registration is available online for
returning students or for students that have an application for admission on file.
Call the Office of Enrollment Services at (305) 809-3188 for information.
Notifications regarding change of address and change of name should be filed

information about registering for classes. Students get a chance to meet other
new students and to ask questions. All new first-time-in-college students that
are degree seeking must participate in a New Student Orientation within their
first semester of enrollment. New students are strongly encouraged to avail
themselves of the information and resources given at orientation. Students unable
