This administrative rule establishes the rules pertaining to student registration timelines, priority registration, add/drop deadlines, and enrollment status.



The dates for priority and open registration are published in advance. Registration continues through the first business day of the second week, for full-term classes with the exception of open-entry and special admit programs classes. Registration deadlines for less-than-full-term classes can be found in the deadlines to add courses table in the Schedule of Classes.

Priority Registration

Priority registration is available to admitted students and it is intended to help students progress towards graduation. Priority registration will be based on the total number of credits a student has earned at LBCC, or be based on the student completing a college determined activity that enhances the chances of their success and graduation from Linn-Benton Community College.


To add or drop a class, students use WebRunner or submit a Schedule Change form at the Registration Office or at one of the college's centers. A signature is required to add a class if not registered by the first day of the class. A fee may be charged for each class added past the add deadline.

LBCC will use waitlists to manage enrollments of full courses and give students the ability to register for courses when space becomes available.

Students are responsible for dropping classes. Classes have deadlines for dropping with a refund. Students who stop attending without dropping the class or drop the class after the drop-with-refund deadline will forfeit all claims to refunds, will be responsible for repayment of financial aid if any, and will be responsible for their grade(s) in the class. See the refunds table in the Schedule of Classes for determining refund dates and amounts.

Students who drop a credit class after the drop-with-refund deadline are considered withdrawn and receive a withdrawal grade of “W”. For full term classes, students must withdraw from a class by the end of the seventh week of the term to receive the withdrawal grade.

Students who have not enrolled in compliance with the dates appearing in the Schedule of Classes will not receive academic credit nor will they be given any special consideration for registering in a class merely because they have been attending.

Enrollment Status Based on Registration

Students are considered enrolled full time if registered for 12 or more credits. Students in associate degree programs should plan to enroll in at least 15 credits per term to accumulate 90 credits in a six-quarter (two-year) period.

Students registering for 21 or more credit hours are required to have approval from their advisor or counselor.

The college may offer waiver programs that have more restrictive registration procedures.
