Loss of Priority Registration

New & continuing students may lose registration priority if they: 1) earn more than 100 degree applicable units at MJC, or 2) are on academic probation for 2 or more terms. If a student loses priority registration they may appeal to have priority registration reinstated.

  • Complete the Appeal for Loss of Priority Registration and submit it to Enrollment Services.
  • Provide a written statement as to why registration priority should be reinstated. 
  • Provide documentation as to the extenuating circumstance or significant academic improvement.
  • Submitted appeals will be reviewed and a decision will be send to MJC student email. 

Foster youth and former foster youth who are 24 years or less are exempt from losing registration priority based on 100 units or more or for failing to meet minimum academic standards.
