How to Register for classes at SBCC:

1. To register for classes, go to Pipeline. Secure your Pipeline username and password, log in, and go to Registration and Student Records. Review your registration status, which will include your pre-registration requirements (HOLDS) and your registration appointment time.

2. If you are not able to add a class prior to the semester, you can add yourself to the waitlist.  For instructions on how to add yourself to the waitlist, please click here.

3. During the first two weeks of the semester (first week during the summer session), you may add semester length classes with permission from the instructor. To add a class, attend the first class meeting. If space is available, ask the instructor for an Add Authorization Code. Log in to Pipeline and go to Registration and Student Records. On the Add/Drop Classes page, input the CRN (Course Reference Number) of the class you wish to register for and click on "submit changes." Enter the Add Authorization Code and click "verify" to continue. Submit your changes, review your schedule and pay fees.
