Review and Adjust Your Registered Courses Step by Step Guide

Review registered courses and access calendar views of your schedule for each semester / academic period. Be sure to review your schedule prior to the start of the academic period and anytime you make registration adjustments to confirm courses, time, day, location, etc.

Before you begin

Understand Your Academic Record: Also called Academic History, your Academic Record shows all of your completed coursework at CCA as well as any transfer credit you have received, including credit from exams and credit from coursework outside of CCA.

Assess Your Progress Towards Degree Completion: Your Academic Progress report shows how your coursework and transfer credit apply towards your degree, displaying which degree requirements you have satisfied and which requirements you have not satisfied. Reference this report throughout your academic planning and registration process.

Understand Your Academic Plan: Your Academic Plan is a multi-year course planning tool that allows you to choose courses for each semester based on your degree requirements. Reviewing your Academic Plan makes it easier to draft schedules for registration. Refer to the course guide for your major and your matriculation date for help guidance in filling out your plan.

Draft a Saved Schedule: Create a potential schedule (known in Workday as a Saved Schedule) for an upcoming term, selecting specific course sections for each of the courses in your academic plan.

Register for Courses: During your registration appointment window, use a Saved Schedule to directly enroll in course sections. You can also register for courses directly from your Academic Plan, but this method takes a little extra time, since you will need to select a course section for each course before you can attempt to register.

a. Select View Schedule to see a calendar view of your scheduled course sections for a given term.

b. Review Meeting Patterns to see the campus/location for each of your course sections (Oakland or San Francisco).

c. Pay attention to your Load Status, as dropping below full-time status may have serious implications for multiple critical areas (F-1 immigration status and qualification for financial aid, CCA health insurance, and campus housing).


Next steps for adjusting your schedule

If adjustments are needed, due to any changes to your record or unforeseen circumstances, be sure to start by referencing your Academic Progress (step 2) and Academic Record (step 1) from the Academics dashboard to determine possible impact to your progress towards degree completion.

Review the Add, Drop, Withdrawal Policy and Academic Calendar for more information.

Adjust registered courses during Add/Drop

Beginning Friday before the start of the semester / academic period through Tuesday of the second week, you have an opportunity to add a new course to your schedule, drop a registered course from your schedule, or swap a registered course with a new course or new course section for another.


The functions below are available during the Add/Drop period for eligible students. If you have a hold on your account, you may not have access to these registration functions.


Review the My Holds worklet on your Academics dashboard to see any current holds. Scroll to the right of the table to view a description and resolution instructions.

Add Courses with Co-Requisites

Some courses have co-requisite courses, which you must take (and therefore register for) simultaneously. In order to register for co-requisite courses during the Add/Drop period, register using a saved schedule.
