Noncredit Educational Programs General Information

All classes are open to persons age 18 or over, unless otherwise noted, or who are not enrolled in a secondary school. Those under 18 who have a high school diploma are also eligible. Exceptions to the age 18 or older eligibility requirement can be made for a student who submits a “Minor Enrollment Request Form” (See “PROCEDURES FOR ENROLLMENT OF MINORS IN NONCREDIT CLASSES”).

New noncredit students must fill out an application before they can register. Applications are now being accepted. 

Registration for Spring 2017 begins December 13. 
Click here to access the online application. 

If you need assistance, you may go to the main office at either the Schott Campus or the Wake Campus to complete a paper application. For more information, call Student Support Services at (805) 898-8160.

New students: after you have completed your application and received your student number (your "K" number), log in to your SBCC Pipeline account to register for classes.

Continuing students: log in to for information on how to register.

Online registration is available approximately two weeks to one month before classes start. Class registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and no visitors or auditors are allowed. If a class is full, students are encouraged to show up to the first class meeting in case of no-shows. A student who does not attend the first meeting of a class may be dropped. If any seats are unclaimed on the first day of a class, walk-in students may then register.

LATE ADDS: A student may enroll in a class after it has begun if: (1) space is available, (2) the instructor permits the late enrollment and (3) the student completes the online application for admission and full registration procedure. See your instructor.

DROPPING A CLASS: Students who decide not to attend class must drop themselves from the class. To drop, log on to, select “Registration” and then select “Register, Add or Drop Classes.” Follow the instructions on the Add/Drop Classes page for dropping a class.
