Spring '15 Priority Registration Starts Friday

By Rob Goldberg Jr.

WINTERVILLE—Continuing students will have the first opportunity to sign up for courses when Pitt Community College begins priority registration for the 2015 Spring Semester on Nov. 7.

According to Joanne Ceres, PCC Dean of Student Services and Enrollment Management, continuing students will register in order of credits passed. She said those with 64 or more credit hours can begin signing up for spring courses on the first day of priority registration, adding that new students can begin registering Nov. 18.

“Those students with the most credits completed, those getting ready to graduate will always be able to register first,” Ceres said. “It’s important for students to register on or as close to their priority registration date as possible in order to have the best selection of classes. Some classes fill up quickly, so registering early gives students a better chance of putting together an ideal spring schedule.”

In conjunction with priority registration, PCC launched the Bulldog Briefing Program earlier this month to help newly-admitted students make a successful transition to PCC when spring classes start Jan. 9.

“As a new student on campus, the best way to begin your education at PCC is to attend an orientation session and receive the tools needed to be successful,” said PCC Student Orientation Coordinator John Carrere. “These events are designed only for students planning to enter the Spring 2015 term as first-time PCC students.”

Four of the hour-long programs, which cover academic information, student services, and financial aid, have already taken place, with a fifth set for Monday at 6 p.m. in the Craig F. Goess Student Center (Room 132). Additional sessions have been scheduled for Nov. 10, Nov. 17 and Nov. 24.

Admitted students may register for a Bulldog Briefing Program by visiting the PCC Orientation website. New students who complete the program prior to Nov. 17 will be awarded an early priority registration date for the Spring 2015 term.

The priority registration period will end on Dec. 5. Ceres said students who sign up for courses during priority registration must pay for them by Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. in order to avoid having their schedules purged.

Walk-in registration for the spring semester is scheduled to take place Jan. 7-8, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. It is open to all students, who will have the option of signing up for classes with their advisors or online.

Students who register during walk-in registration must pay for their tuition and fees the day they sign up for classes in order to keep their schedules.
