After You Apply
After submitting an application for admission first-time college students and returning students are required to complete the following steps before they can register:
- Placement Survey (WebAdvisor)
- New Student Orientation (WebAdvisor)
- First-Semester Educational Plan (Counseling Department)
See the Steps to Enrollment page for additional information.
All students are assigned registration dates for each semester. Students may register on or after their registration date/block. To determine a registration date/block, log into WebAdvisor from MyVVC and select "My Registration Dates". Registration dates may not be available if the student has applied late for a term. Continue to check the VVC website for updates. Priority Registration dates are based on recommendations from the California Student Success Initiative, SB 1456.
Continuing & Returning students should check their registration dates early to ensure that no holds are on file and that they will not be blocked from registration.
Registering for Classes
Active students may add a class during the registration period until the beginning of each semester. Registering for classes is completed through Navigate.

Waitlisting gives students the opportunity to be first in line to register for classes that are already full. For example, if a person drops from a course, then the individual at the top of the waitlist will have the first opportunity to register and fill that empty seat. Waitlisting is available in most classes. Students will be notified through VVC student email.
*IMPORTANT: Students should check their WebAdvisor - "Registration Statement" frequently to see if they have moved from the waitlist to enrolled status. IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO CONFIRM ENROLLMENT AND PAY ANY ADDITIONAL FEES. STUDENTS THAT DO NOT INTEND TO REMAIN IN THE CLASS, YOU MUST DROP THEMSELVES BY THE DROP AND REFUND DEADLINES.
If students are NOT registered into the class and are still on the waitlist when the semester starts, students are encouraged to attend the first day of class. If the instructor has seats available in the class, they will give the student a four-digit authorization code. For online classes, instructors will email the student an authorization code.
Once classes begin, an Authorization code, obtained from the instructor, is needed to add a class to a schedule. If a schedule is revised in such a way as to change the total number of units taken, the amount of enrollment fees will also change. All fees are due at the time the change is made.
