Admissions & Records Frequently Asked Questions

How is my Registration Date Assigned?

Mt. San Antonio College is required by the State of California (Title 5, Section 58108) to establish a system of providing an equal and fair chance for all students to register for the classes they need throughout their college career. Mt. SAC’s priority registration was established to enable students to enter and be able to complete their educational goals within a reasonable time frame. Students are not allowed to register before their assigned date and time as published in their portal The college is not in the practice of changing or swapping priority dates. Priority is given to groups of students as defined by categories. Students who fall in the same category are then prioritized and randomly assigned to appointment dates and times. Because of this random assignment, it is possible that two students with the same number of units completed can be assigned priority dates that may be days apart.
