New Student Advising & Registration

Steps to Enroll » Step 5: Get Registered

Prepare to Register

Check your SPSCC email for a link to complete both your Pathway Selection Survey and New Student Advising & Registration. You'll get this about 1 business day after you set up your SPSCC email (step 2). After you complete both of these, please allow 2-3 business days for us to clear you to register for the next quarter.

The Pathway Selection Survey and New Student Advising & Registration (NSAR) for Winter 2022 will be emailed to students on October 18th, 2021.

If you don't see the link in your SPSCC email: Complete the Request for Access form. You'll be sent a new link within 1 business day.

If you're a returning student with an active SPSCC email account: you'll be sent the link about 1-2 business day after your admissions application has been processed.

If you applied for a future quarter (Spring 2022 or after): you'll be sent the link 3 weeks before New Student Advising & Registration opens.

Pathway Selection Survey

The Pathway Selection Survey guides you through a 6 question career assessment that will help you select your degree or certificate and pick a Pathway. When you pick a Pathway, you take classes that relate to your interests and goals, reduce time spent earning your degree, and increase the likelihood of your graduation.

For your health and safety, this step is open online only.

New Student Advising & Registration

In your New Student Advising & Registration (NSAR) session, you’ll learn about campus resources, your Support Network, and how to get registered for classes.

For your health and safety, this step is open online only.

Things you should know

The Pathway Selection Survey and NSAR are for students who are new to SPSCC or returning after more than two quarters away. Before completing these steps, make sure you have:

  • Applied to SPSCC;
  • Set up your student email;
