How to Register

Selecting a program and registering

Contact Academic Advising as soon as you are admitted to the college. Prior to being admitted, work with an admissions counselor who can help you with the application process and initial advising.

Students register online, through At Evergreen, you can register for up to 20 credits. Over 16 credits is considered an overload, so we don't recommend this during your first quarter.

Once you've registered, review your selections by going to and clicking on Registration. Once on that page, select Student Registration Details . It will show all the details of your registration (including waitlist positions) by quarter.

You can make changes to your registration as long as online registration remains open (through the first week of class). But please be super careful! Once you drop yourself from a class (or waitlist) it may not be possible to get back in. Before changing anything, contact Registration and Records to discuss what you are considering. If you accidentally mess something up, call Registration right away at (360) 867-6680 to ask for help.


If a program has filled, the registration system will indicate how many students are already on the wait list. To be included on the wait list you must:

  • Select "Waitlist" in the "Action" box
  • Click Submit Changes again

If your second choice is also full, repeat the process. The system will notify you when you are officially registered in a program. Generally, students are very satisfied with their alternate choice, but you may contact Academic Advising to discuss your options.
