How to Get Started: Registration

Registration Office

Takena Hall 115, 541- 917-4811

To Register for Classes

Continuing, admitted students will be assigned a priority registration time each term based on the number of credits they have earned at LBCC plus their currently registered LBCC credits. See the quarterly Schedule of Classes for registration times and information about the registration process.

Students who have not completed the admission process can register for 0–5 credits during Open Registration times. Students will be asked to use yourtheirSocial Security number as an initial student identification number to complete the Student Data form. A student ID will be generated. This number may be viewed in WebRunner student accounts.

Wait List Procedures

If a class is full, students may be able register if there are seats available on the Wait List.  If someone in the class drops, you will be notified via your Linn-Benton student email account. Once notified, you have 48 hours to register, after which time you will be dropped from the list.

Understanding Course Numbers

All Lower Division Transfer (LDT) and Career Technical Education (CTE) courses are taught at a college level. LDT courses with letter prefixes and numbers of 100 or higher should transfer to a four-year institution. 

CTE courses with letter prefixes and numbers of 100 or higher, letter-prefix courses that have numbers below 100, or numbers that include a decimal point generally will not transfer to a four-year institution. However, there are some exceptions; see your advisor concerning transferability.

You are not limited to taking all LDT or all CTE courses; you may mix and match them depending on your program. Consult your advisor.

If a course number is changed, the new course number will appear on your permanent record only if you took the class after the change was approved.


Many courses require prerequisite courses be successfully completed prior to enrollment. Check the “Course Description” section of this catalog for prerequisites before registering. If you are uncertain about whether you have met a specific prerequisite, check your unofficial transcripts in your WebRunner student account, ask your advisor, or the instructor of the class. If you have not met the prerequisite requiment, you may be prevented from registering or dropped from the course.

Class Schedule Changes

To make changes to your class schedule, you may use your WebRunner student account or submit a schedule change to Registration. For classes that require an instructor’s signature, you must submit a schedule change to Registration.

During the first week of the term, you must have written permission from the instructor to add a class that is full. Registration deadlines for less-than-full-term classes are printed in the schedule.

If you are changing to another section of a course you must fill out a schedule change and submit to Registration.

You have until the end of the seventh week of each term to officially withdraw from a full-term class and earn a “W” grade. Withdrawal deadlines for shorter classes are printed in the schedule. (Note: “W” grades are considered non-completion grades for financial aid.)

Auditing Classes

If you want to audit a class (take it without receiving credit) you can request audit status either at the time of registration or during the add period for that class. Instructors reserve the right to disenroll students who have not met prerequisite requirements for the course they want to audit. The fees for auditing a class are the same as regular enrollment fees. You are encouraged to discuss your learning goals with the instructor prior to auditing a class. Auditing students are expected to fully participate in class activities. The instructor is under no obligation to grade or record the student’s work. An “AU” grade will be recorded on the transcript.
