Priority Registration

Earning your HFC degree is an important life goal, and we want to help you reach graduation! Register early, so you can get into the classes you need for your degree. Priority Registration allows students who have earned the most credit hours to have the first choice of classes.

Note: Due to the coronavirus, our 2020 Fall semester registration opens earlier than 2020 Summer registration. Our usual Spring and Summer semesters will be combined into a single Summer semester, with a registration date beginning two weeks later than Fall registration. See details below.

What is Priority Registration?

Priority Registration allows students who have completed a specified number of credit hours to register before students who have completed fewer credit hours. HFC will assign students a specific time to register on one of the dates noted above. Students will receive an email message informing them of their registration day and time. Once the student’s assigned date/time has passed, they are free to register and/or make changes as needed until the published deadlines.

NOTE: The completed hours do NOT include transfer credit(s) from other institutions, or standardized test scores.

Special Condition Priority Registration

The following groups of students will receive priority registration regardless of number of credit hours earned:

  • Students who are military veterans and active-duty service members;
  • Students enrolled in the Honors Program at HFC;
  • Qualified Assisted Learning Services students; and
  • HFC Student Athletes.

Notification

You will receive an email message to your HawkMail account from the Office of the Registrar indicating which Priority Day and time you have been assigned. This is an exciting opportunity to register early, so don’t miss out and register on your assigned day/time! You can register any time after your assigned day and time. However, be sure to register by the deadline, which is available on the academic calendar.
