Continuing, New and re-admitted students must have a registration appointment in order to register for classes. Students may register online, through WEB4 by logging in using their student ID and PIN#. More information is provided below.

With the exemption of the Summer semester, Non-Payment of fees will result in your courses being dropped (during the registration period) and/or a HOLD being placed on your account. This could also result in not receiving college services. Students who register for classes once the semester begins WILL NOT BE DROPPED for non-payment of fees. However, students are liable for all fees for classes not dropped by the mandated refund deadline dates.

Exemptions from immediate payment of fees will be available to accommodate the following groups of students: students receiving financial aid based on BOG and FAFSA eligibility, students who sign up for a tuition payment plan, and self-certified exemptions for military service, among others. Please be advised that students are responsible for self-certified exemptions. If your certified exemption is not processed, students are responsible for all fees assessed and must adhere to the drop deadline dates.

The Registration office is located on the main campus, 50 Phelan Avenue, Smith Hall #118, San Francisco, CA 94112. You may also reach us by email, or by calling (415) 239-3732.
