West Hills College is making it possible for students to register in advance for classes for an entire year! Students are able to register for all three semesters of the academic year at once. This will allow students to plan and guarantee their class schedule for a full academic year.
Class registration becomes available in April/May each year, allowing registrations for the following Summer, Fall, and Spring semesters - the entire academic year all at once!
Priority registration is granted based upon special factors such as active military/veteran status, membership in a special group (i.e. President's Scholars, SSS TRiO), and a number of college units completed. New students need to complete the application for admission, placement testing, orientation, and counseling.
