Steps to Enrollment

Welcome to Shasta College! Follow this step-by-step instructions on how to enroll:


This starts the process! Complete an online application or submit a paper application to the Admissions and Records Office or Extended Education campus. Your application may take 24 hours to process.

Financial Aid

Complete the FAFSA application at: Check your status on MyShasta > My Financial Aid. (You may be eligible for free tuition under the California College Promise Grant or Shasta College Promise Program.)


Arrange to have official transcripts of high school and previous college work sent to Shasta College. These are important for counseling and program planning.

Student Logins

Your "Welcome to Shasta College" e-mail contains instructions for activating your MyShasta and Shasta Portal accounts.


The orientation program provides new students an opportunity to prepare for college. Students may also choose to complete this requirement by completing the orientation online.


Develop an Education Plan and determine English and math placement options by scheduling an appointment online or in person by calling the academic counseling center. Please bring a copy of your unofficial transcript.

Pre-Registration Form

Pre-registration is the important first step to registering for classes. Make sure items like your contact information and your intended major are all up to date to ensure an easy transition into the next semester.


Students who complete the previous steps will be given "priority registration" status. Once you've completed all previous steps, acquire your registration date and time on MyShasta.
