News at Brookhaven College

For Immediate Release

NEW Guidelines are Changing Your Registration Deadlines
(Suggestion: Bookmark This Page)

Are you a new student? Are you a returning student on academic probation, suspension or dismissal? If you are, be sure to register for classes early: before January.

New Students Taking Credit Classes

You must register for classes before the first class meeting.

Probation, Suspension or Dismissal Students

You must register no later than the Jan. 7 deadline date. To check on your status -- on probation, suspension or dismissal:

If you have questions about your academic standing, check with an academic advisor: Student Services Center, Bldg. S, Room S113; or 972-860-4830.

Other Information

For winter flex-term and Spring 2011 classes, only continuing students who have been registered at the DCCCD within the past year and who are in good academic standing are allowed to register for a credit class that has already met.

NOTE: Beginning with the Fall 2011 semester, no one will be allowed to register after a credit class has met once.

Spring classes begin Jan. 18.

NOTE: Research shows that students who miss the first day of class tend not to do as well academically as those who register on time to make the first class meeting. Why? Because the first day of class is one of the most important days. If you miss it, you'll have a difficult time trying to catch up. We want you to do well -- and registering before classes begin is one way to get off to a good start.

Registration Deadlines

Students on probation, suspension or dismissal must register by Jan. 7, 2011. New students are not allowed to register for a course after the first class meeting.

NOTE: Deadlines for future terms for students on probation, suspension or dismissal include May 6 for May flex term, May 27 for Summer I, July 1 for Summer II, and Aug. 19 for Fall 2011.
