CYPRESS COLLEGE 2012–2013
A registration email is sent to all new, returning and continuing students. The email indicates the earliest date and time the student can register for classes. Students can also view their registration date and time under Personal Announcements of myGateway’s student tab. Certain registration and admission deadlines must be established. These deadlines are necessary in order to comply with state attendance laws and must be followed by Faculty and students. Failure to comply with these deadlines may mean that the student will not be allowed to attend or receive credit for the class.
New students are those who have never registered for classes at Cypress or Fullerton College. They must submit the online admissions application. Most new students are required to participate in an assessment and orientation session prior to registering for classes. It is recommended that official transcripts from high school and other colleges are submitted to Cypress College for possible prerequisite clearance.
Returning students are those who have previously attended Cypress or Fullerton College but are returning after an absence of a semester or more (excluding Summer). They must submit the online admissions application. It is recommended that official transcripts from other colleges be submitted to Cypress College for possible prerequisite clearance.
Continuing Students are those students who were registered in a class at Cypress or Fullerton College the previous semester long enough to have a grade (A, B, C, D, F, I, IP, P, NP) or a withdrawal (W) posted to their transcript. They do not need to submit the online admissions application. Continuing students are given priority registration based on the number of units completed at Cypress and Fullerton Colleges. Those who were registered during the semester but did not complete a course with a letter grade or “W” will have forfeited their continuing student status. They must submit a new online admissions application and will initially be classified as a Returning student.
In order to be placed in appropriate class levels students are evaluated and assessed in the areas of English, ESL, reading, writing and mathematics. Students should consult the Assessment Center about placement tests taken at other colleges. The Assessment Center is one of the main components of matriculation services offered to each student.
Students are strongly advised to meet with a counselor prior to registration. Counselors are well informed in various fields of study and can assist students in long-range planning for specific educational plans. New students are required to attend an orientation to receive important information on offered programs, policies and registration procedures. Orientation appointments are made at the conclusion of the assessment testing. Students can attend an in-person orientation or elect to complete an orientation online.
myGateway is the web portal that enables students to view their registration times, class schedules, grades, academic history, added or dropped classes, and access a variety of useful resources. A student ID number and Personal Identification Number (PIN) is needed to log into myGateway which can be accessed on the college website.
