Registration & Schedule

VIP Registration

Typically, students who owe money after the tuition deadline have a “financial hold” and cannot register for future classes. VIP Registration is the ONE DAY each year that you can register regardless of a financial hold. This allows you to reserve your courses and schedule while you pay off what you owe!

IMPORTANT: If you register with a hold on VIP Registration, you will be dropped from your classes if you haven’t paid the past-due balance (the tuition and fees owed for Spring or prior) by the following deadlines:

Fall course drop date: September 8th at 4:30 pm.
Summer course drop date: June 15th at 4:30 pm.
Registration Holds freeze all registration activity. After VIP Registration ends (11:59 pm), holds will be placed back on all accounts. This means that if you have registered with a hold, you will not be able to make any changes to your schedule (add/drop classes) in WebRunner until the account balance is paid off (this will remove the hold).

You can check your account balance (what you owe currently) any time in the “Student Accounts” section of WebRunner.

For Student Accounts question, you can reach the Business Office:

Financial Hardship
Many students end up with a Registration Hold due to financial hardship. If you are experiencing financial distress, contact resources@linnbenton.edu for information about basic needs and student emergency grants.

If you have a financial hold because of an issue with your Federal Financial Aid (via the FAFSA) or veteran’s benefits, please contact the Financial Aid Office. Also, check your WebRunner account for outstanding financial aid documentation that may be stalling your award.

Types of Registration Holds
A Registration Hold stops you from adding or dropping classes. A student can get a registration hold for a variety of reasons. ONLY financial holds are lifted for VIP Registration.

Not sure if you have a registration hold? Log into your Webrunner account using your Single Sign-On password. Find your hold information: Student> Student Accounts> View Holds

“Financial holds” are placed if you owe money after the tuition deadline (also called a “past-due balance”). If you have a financial hold because of a past-due balance, you can register during VIP Registration. You will need to pay off the balance before classes start (see “Registering with a Hold” above).

“Academic holds” are not lifted for VIP Registration. If you have an academic hold due to academic performance, contact your advisor to discuss academic planning options and the possibility of resolving the hold.

“Insurance holds” are not lifted for VIP Registration. If you have a question about an insurance hold, please contact the International Programs Office.

All other hold types are not lifted for VIP Registration. Please call the phone number listed next to the hold in your Webrunner account for more information.

 

 

VIP Registration FAQ

Where do I register on VIP Registration Day?
On WebRunner, just like your regular registration! If you’re unsure about how to register on WebRunner, you can get help from the VIP Lounge (Hot Shots Cafe) or our friendly staff at the Admissions and Registrations desk (all campuses).
Do I have to see an advisor to register on VIP Registration Day?
It is not required but it is highly recommended.
What if I need help registering?
Call the Registration Hotline (e.g. Admissions and Registration Desk) at (541) 917-4811. We’ll help you troubleshoot your registration issues. Hotline hours are 7 am–4:30 pm. You can also stop by the VIP Lounge for in-person help!
I have a financial hold. What happens if I register on VIP Registration Day?
Your financial hold will not prevent you from registering for your courses on VIP Registration. After registering, the Business Office will contact you with details about resolving the hold. If the balance isn’t paid in time, you will be dropped from your classes.
I am a high school student who takes classes on the LBCC campuses. Can I participate?
You may be eligible to participate but must meet with your LBCC advisor first. Contact Cait Morgan at morganc@linnbenton.edu for more information.
What if I want to register for a “Signature Only” class?
You will still need to get your instructor's signature for this. Talk to your instructor in advance of VIP Registration day to get an “Instructor Override”!
What if I want to register for a class with a waitlist?
For courses with waitlists, VIP Registration is no different than any other. If you get on the waitlist and an enrolled student drops, you will receive an email notification to enroll on WebRunner within 48 hours. You must act quickly if you want the spot! Tip: If you are still on the waitlist by the first day of class, attend the class in case an enrolled student drops or does not attend. Check your email frequently!
What if I register on VIP Registration Day but change my mind about my schedule or courses?
After 11:59 pm on VIP Registration Day, no changes can be made to your schedule until your regular registration period (see academic calendar). After your registration period opens up, you may make changes.
What if I want to register for ALP?
If you would like to register for ALP (special paired sections of WR 115 & WR 121 totaling 6 Writing credits), it is best to get this process started before VIP Registration so that you can build your schedule around it. The decision to take ALP is a decision that should be made with your current writing instructor. Contact coordinator Sonya James with questions at jamess@linnbenton.edu
 What if I’m a veteran?
Veterans may register one day ahead of VIP Registration Day! Check your LBCC email for details on how to register early.
