Registration

Your enrollment priority will be determined by your status as a new, continuing or returning student at College of Marin, AND a series of steps called matriculation (see below) that are designed to help you be successful as a college student. By completing each of these steps you will earn the right to register early in the registration cycle, providing you with the best chance of securing the classes you need each semester.

The 3 key steps of matriculation include:

  1. Complete an Assessment (placement testing, e.g., English, math, or ESL).
  2. Participate in an Orientation.
  3. Meet with a Counselor to Develop/Update your Student Educational Plan.

College of Marin’s revised enrollment priorities can be found in Administrative Procedure 5055.

Register for Concurrent Enrollment for High Schools Students/College Credit Program (CCP)

High School Students

After submitting an application:

  1. Come to the College of Marin Counseling Department for a Mini-Orientation
    If this is your first time taking a College of Marin course, you must attend a mini-orientation led by a COM counselor. During peak registration periods, we will hold group mini-orientations (see event schedule). If you are not able to attend one of the group sessions, please call the Counseling Office at (415) 485-9432 to ask for a short drop-in appointment for the orientation.

    Bring your completed College Credit Program (CCP) form to orientation, complete with your signature and those of your parent (if you are under 18 years) and your high school principal and counselor. Our counselor will only sign your completed CCP form. If you are interested in registering for a math or English class, the COM counselor will not be able to sign your CCP card without proof of eligibility for math or English (either an AP score or our placement test score).

  2. Turn in your College Credit Program (CCP) Form
    Turn in your CCP card along to the Office of Enrollment Services on either the Kentfield or Indian Valley Campus. Make sure that you have the appropriate signatures on your CCP card. If you turn in the CCP form by the required date, you may enroll online beginning on the CCP registration date.
