Regarding Priority Enrollment Status
Students who first attended Shasta College Fall 2014 or after must complete an orientation, assessment and develop an education plan and remain in good standing to enjoy priority enrollment. A student may appeal the loss of priority enrollment status due to extenuating circumstances or where a student on academic or progress probation demonstrates significant academic improvement. Extenuating circumstances are verified cases of accidents, illnesses or other circumstances beyond the control of the student. Significant academic improvement is defined as achieving the minimum grade point average and progress standard established in section 55031 for the term. Please see a Counselor for possible matriculation exemptions. Units completed at other colleges are not used in determining registration priority.
