Holds

Students with a hold on their record will not be permitted to register until the hold has been cleared. NO EXCEPTIONS!
To check your hold, you may contact the Admissions Office. If you have any Accounting hold, you may pay at the Accounting Office, Room I4-106 or by completing the credit card authorization form and faxing it or emailing it. If the student's payment has been deferred or the student's enrollment fee is not fully covered by Financial Aid Non-Resident Pell Grant, students can no longer pay online, and payment can be submitted using the credit card authorization form.
Note: Some "holds" cannot be paid with a credit card or check. Please check with the Accounting Office at 619.388-2704.

Adding Classes

Students may add classes online until the deadline date published in the schedule of classes. Students will not be allowed to add classes beyond the published deadline.

To add a class once the semester has begun, students must obtain an add code from the instructor, then must process and pay for the added class through Reg-e by the deadline. A student may also pay at the Accounting Office, Room I4-106.

Dropping Classes

Students may drop or withdraw from classes online until the deadline dates published in the schedule of classes. Deadline dates not published in the schedule of classes are available in the Admissions Office or online at http://studentweb.sdccd.net.

It is the student's responsibility to drop classes. If a student remains on the class roster beyond the withdrawal deadline, the student must receive a letter grade even if he or she has stopped attending class.

Exclusion from Classes

A student may be excluded from class or the college whenever the student:

  1. Exhibits behavior which interferes with the educational process. An instructor may remove a student from two class sessions for disruptive behavior. (Refer to Policy 3100: Student Rights, Responsibilities and Administrative Due Process);
  2. Is found to have a communicable disease where isolation is required pursuant to a directive from the County Department of Public Health.

Study Load Limit

To help minimize the impact of the state budget challenges, starting Fall 2010 and until further notice the maximum allowable unit load will be 16 units. Due to limited availability of classes, students will be limited to register in 16 units, and once classes begin, students will be permitted to add additional units (up to 20) if space is available.

The maximum study load for a semester is 20 academic units exclusive of physical education activity units and/or 25 units including physical education. In special circumstances, in which a student has an exceptional record of academic achievement, the Counseling Department may consider a request to increase this limit.

Students are reminded that each unit of credit is calculated to involve a total of at least three hours of classroom and outside time per week. Thus, a 20-unit study load represents a minimum 60-hour work load each week. Students working full-time are advised NOT to attempt a full-time college program.

Twelve units of credit is considered a minimum full-time program during a semester; nine units is three-quarters time, and six units, half-time.

The maximum study load for summer session is twelve academic units excluding physical education and/or 15 units including physical education.

Administrative Drop

Registration may be administratively canceled for the following reasons:

  1. Failure to pay all mandatory fees in accordance with the fee payment schedule;
  2. Using an add code issued to another student;
  3. Failure to meet the terms and conditions of a fee deferment;
  4. Failure to meet academic or progress standards;
  5. Denial of a "Petition to Challenge A Prerequisite."

Change of Name or Address

All students must report immediately any change of address to the college Admissions Office or online at http://studentweb.sdccd.edu. Failure to provide this information will result in delays in registration, and other important information sent by the college. Name changes must be supported with legal documentation and a picture ID and reported in person at the Admissions Office. In order for a new school ID to be issued reflecting the new name, a fee of $5.00 must be paid in the Accounting Office, Room I4-106.
