Trouble finding your Student/User ID Number?

With the exception of Special-Admit High School students, all students receive an appointment to register online using the San Diego Community College District’s online registration system. 

By using the combined schedule of classes and the online registration system, a student can enroll in any available course offered at ECC, City, Mesa, or Miramar Colleges. Instructions for the class schedule and online registration are available on campus and on the web at http://classschedule.sdccd.edu/.

RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAINTAINING ACCURATE REGISTRATION

It is the student's obligation to add, drop, or withdraw from classes before the deadlines stated in the class schedule. This applies even if the student has never attended class. Any student who anticiplates difficulty in paying fees should check with the Financial Aid Office about eligibility and sources of assistance. Registration may be canceled for nonpayment of fees.

RESIDENCY

Residency is determined when a student applies for admission to the College. Please see the Residency page for detailed information regarding how Residency is determined and established. Details are found in the CA Education Code Section 68000, Title 5, sections 54000-54072.

HOLDS/SERVICE INDICATORS

A student will be able to view any account hold/service indicator on their College Student Dashboard in mySDCCD. Holds/Service Indicators may impact student services such as registration, transcripts and other vital student services. Students should address these in a timely manner to avoid service interruption. Questions about holds/service indicators? Call Admissions and Records (619) 388-7844.
