Register for Classes

Registering for courses at Elgin Community College is quick and easy—and we’re here to help.

Some classes fill quickly, so register early to reserve your spot in class.

Before You Register


Here's how to make your registration process go smoothly.

  • Determine which classes you need to take. Meet with an academic advisor to review the options or see the course catalog.
  • Make sure you've met your prerequisites. If you haven't, you may be able to place into the course by taking a placement test.
  • Clear all outstanding financial obligations. You can't register if you have a past due balance.
  • Check important registration dates to make sure you don't miss the registration period. Registration for summer and fall semesters begins in November. Registration for spring semester begins in November. Remember—register early!

Fall 2020 Offerings

Students can view schedule updates for face-to face courses converted to online courses. In the event a course includes any instruction on campus, the on-campus instruction will be scheduled to complete by the Thanksgiving break. The remainder of the on-campus course may continue online, however. For more information on Fall 2020 classes, visit Campus Central.

The green star will indicate format and meeting times are up-to-date.
