If you are assigned to me for academic advising, the following information should be helpful in getting you ready for your earliest registration time.

Every term:

  • Check your Bobcat Web Account to see if you have an advising requirement. To do this, go to and select Student Login in the upper right corner of the page, then select the Bobcat Web Account. Once you have logged in, select Student Services and Financial Aid, Registration, and then the first link, Can I register for Credit Classes? This page shows any requirements that have to be met before you can register, and it will also tell you your registration time (based on the number of credits you have completed).

If you do have an advising requirement, here's what you need to know:

  1. Take care of your advising requirement early! Please don’t wait until the week registration for this, as I have a limited amount of time that week. We recommend the following timeline:
    • For fall term, complete your advising before Cinco de Mayo (for mid-May registration)
    • For winter term, complete advising before Halloween (for mid-November registration)
    • For spring term,complete advising before Valentine's day (for early March registration)
  2. If you are a new student, please complete the "Getting ready for next term" section in your  New Student Workbook and bring it to your advising meeting.
  3. Please make a plan for upcoming term, and preferably for several terms. The online schedule usually includes future terms. Write down your schedule and bring it with you when we meet.
  4. Connect with me for advising. Here are your options:
    • Make an appointment with me; we can meet in person or over the phone. To set up a time, identify a few times that you are available during the next week and either call me or email me. 
    • Advising over email (If you are on academic warning we will need to meet in person.). Email me the following information: your student ID number, an update on what you are taking this term and how you are doing, the specific degree you are pursuing, and your list of course numbers that you plan for the upcoming terms.
  5. After advising, I recommend you check your student account again, about a week before you plan to register. That way, you can take care of any parking fines or overdue library books that will prevent you from registering.



Need to know your progress towards your degree? You can use GradTracks in your Bobcat Account, and it will tell you what you have taken and what is left.   

Use your COCC email! Remember, it is your job to keep up to date on email coming to your COCC account (including now financial aid and billing information). If you need help, drop by one of our Computer Labs and ask the monitor for help (see ).
