Spring '16 Priority Registration Starts Nov. 9

WINTERVILLE—Continuing students will have the first opportunity to sign up for courses when Pitt Community College begins priority registration for the 2016 Spring Semester on Nov. 9.

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 first-time freshman students must attend a New Student Orientation session before registering for classes. Transfer students, she said, may register beginning Nov. 19.

“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 New Student Orientation Program to help new students make a successful transition to PCC when spring classes start Jan. 7.

“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 mandatory for first-time freshmen and are designed only for students planning to enter the Spring 2016 term.”

The orientation programs, which cover academic information, student services and financial aid, are scheduled to take place Nov. 19 and 30 in the Craig F. Goess Student Center. Students may register for New Student Orientation by visiting the PCC Orientation page on the college’s website, www.pittcc.edu.

The priority registration period ends Dec. 7. Ceres said students who sign up for courses during priority registration must pay for them by Dec. 16 at 5 p.m. in order to avoid having their schedules purged.
