Welcome Citrus College Student,
To better assist your educational goals, Citrus College is now combining registration for summer and fall 2017. That means that you will be able to register for both summer and fall at the same time. Registration appointments are posted on WingSpan. Priority registration will begin Monday, May 15. Registration will remain open until the start of each term. Please review the FAQs below for additional information.
Payment Disclosure for Summer and Fall 2017 Registration
Attention Citrus College Students
Payment for summer 2017 is due immediately upon completing registration. Please be aware that if a full payment is not submitted, you may be dropped for non-payment from your courses. The first scheduled drop for non-payment for summer 2017 is June 1. You may qualify to have your registration fees waived by applying for the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver (BOGFW). If you are currently receiving a BOGFW for spring 2017, you do not need to reapply to receive the BOGFW for summer 2017. If you are a new student for summer 2017, in order to receive a BOGFW for summer 2017, you will need to complete the 2016-2017 BOGFW. You should complete the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or DREAM Act application to see if you qualify for additional financial aid.
NOTE: Due to combining summer and fall registration, registration fees for fall 2017 will not be assessed until July 3, 2017. Although you are able to add and secure your courses for fall 2017, your account summary page in Wingspan will not display the fall charges. Beginning July 3, students who registered for fall 2017 before July 3, 2017 and students who register for fall thereafter may view and make payments via WingSpan. The first scheduled drop for non-payment for fall 2017 is July 13. In order to receive financial aid for Fall 2017, you will need to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA, 2017-2018 BOGFW or DREAM Act applications.
Summer and Fall 2017 Registration FAQs
Q1: Why is fall registration moving up from July to May?
A: There are many reasons to move up fall registration and chief among them is our ability to provide registration assistance to more students. More than twice the number of students register for fall than summer. Most students who register for fall are continuing students. In other words, most students who will register for fall are on campus in the spring and are not on campus in the summer. By having registration when more students are on campus, we hope to provide students with additional services to make their registration a success. In addition, School Relations and Outreach and the Counseling and Advisement Center will be at our local high schools helping to register our incoming fall students, something we could not do in July.
Q2: Are students required to enroll in both summer and fall terms?
A: No, students can choose to enroll in only one term or both terms. However, students are encouraged to register as soon as possible as some classes fill up quickly.
Q3: What are the drop for nonpayment dates?
A: Summer drop for nonpayment will take place June 1 and June 25. Fall drop for nonpayment will take place July 13, August 3, and August 24.
Q4: If a student enrolls in both summer and fall, do they have to pay for both terms up-front?
A: No, payments for both terms will be staggered so that a student only needs to pay for each term prior to the drop for nonpayment deadline(s) for that term.
Q5: When can students begin making payments?
A: Students can begin making payments for summer on May 15 and for fall on July 3. Students will begin receiving overdue notices for fall via email on July 7.
Q6: What if a course a student wants to register for in fall has a prerequisite class that the student plans to take in summer? Will WingSpan let the student enroll in the course for fall?
A: Yes, the student will be able to enroll for a fall class that requires passing a prerequisite class as long the student is enrolled in the prerequisite class in summer.
Q7: What if the student fails a class in summer that is a prerequisite for a class the student registers to take in the fall?
A: If the student fails the summer class, the Admissions and Records Office will administratively drop the student from the fall class prior to the start of the fall semester and the student will then be able to register to repeat the failed course.
Q8: What if a student is currently enrolled in spring, not passing a class they are currently enrolled in, and wants to register to repeat that class in summer or fall?
A: The student information system assumes that all students currently enrolled in a class will pass the class. Therefore, the student can register for the subsequent class, but cannot enroll to repeat a class they may be failing until the final grade posts. Students who are not passing a class and wish to use their priority registration appointment to register for the same class should consider dropping the class with a "W." If it is too late to drop the class with a "W" the student will need to wait until the instructor submits the final grades for the class.
Note: A strategy for students who are currently enrolled for a class they are failing in spring and want to repeat the class in summer and take the next level class in fall: register for the fall class during their priority registration period and as soon as their substandard grade posts for the spring class, try to register to repeat the class in summer.
Q9: What if the student doesn’t know what classes to register for?
A: Students should follow their Student Educational Plan (SEP) when registering for courses. If they need to update their SEP, students should make an appointment to review their SEP with a counselor.
Q10: If students have financial aid now, do they need to reapply?
A: Financial Aid is available for both summer and fall terms and students currently receiving financial aid for spring do not need to reapply to receive financial aid in summer. However, in order to receive financial aid for fall, students need to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA/BOGFW/Dream Act. Please visit the financial aid webpage for additional information.
Q11: What if a student wants to receive financial aid for summer and they are not currently receiving financial aid?
A: Students who are not currently receiving financial aid can still apply to receive financial aid for spring and summer by completing the 2016-2017 FAFSA/BOGFW/Dream Act. The financial aid deadline for 2016-2017 is June 30, 2017.
Q12: What about future AB 540 students who have not graduated from high school before the first drop for nonpayment deadline?
A: Students who may be AB 540 will need to turn in to the Admissions and Records Office a target letter, a copy of their high school transcript and submit the AB 540 form so that they can be exempted from the first summer drop for nonpayment on June 1. After their high school graduation and before the second drop for nonpayment deadline on June 25, the students will need to bring an updated high school transcript showing their graduation date.
Q13: When will students be able to purchase parking?
A: The parking process will continue as before. Starting the last week of May and continuing thereafter, students who paid their summer fees will be able to purchase summer parking. Fall parking won’t be available until the last week of July.
Q14: How will probation affect students registering for summer and fall?
A: Upon running standing for spring in mid-June, students on probation receive a hold that prevents them from adding/dropping any additional classes. To remove the hold, students must complete a probation workshop. Students who registered before spring standing was run will be allowed to keep their summer classes. Because students on probation are not allowed to enroll in more than 13 units in fall, students who were enrolled in 13 or more units at the time probation is run will get a second hold that will require the student to see a counselor. The counselor will assist the student in reducing their coursework.
Q15: How will dismissal affect students registering for summer and fall?
A: Students who register before spring standing is run will be allowed to keep their classes for summer, but will need to successfully complete the appeal process to keep their fall classes. In addition, reinstated students may be required to reduce the number of units they are enrolled in. Students who don’t appeal or whose appeal is denied will be administratively dropped from their fall classes.
Q16: Who do we contact with registration problems?
A: Whenever registration problem come up (e.g. errors with appointments, prerequisites, course repetition), please contact the Admissions and Records Office at (626) 914-8511. Please make sure you have the student ID number, CRN, and error message with you when you contact the Admissions and Records Office.
