Priority Registration Available for Parents


The new California law (AB 2881) supports parenting college students. The law will provide priority registration for student parents who have children under the age of 18 who receive more than half of their support from the student.

Student Parents can submit the Request for Student Parents Priority Registration Form. This form must be submitted EACH term in order to maintain priority one registration. Forms submitted less than one week before the start of priority one registration cannot be guaranteed to be processed in time for priority registration. Visit the Priority Registration Schedule page for more information.
