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 Academic Calendar on LBCC's website for registration times and information about the registration process.

Non degree seeking students can register for 0–5 credits during Open Registration times.

Waitlist Procedures

If a class is full, students may be able to add themselves to a waitlist if there is availability. If someone registered in the class drops it, the first student on the waitlist will be notified via their Linn-Benton student email account. Once notified, the waitlisted student will have 48 hours to register for the course. If they do not register during that time frame, they will be dropped from the waitlist.

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 courses depending on your program. Consult an advisor.

If a course number is changed, the new course number will appear on a student's permanent record only if taken after the change was approved.


Common Course Numbering (CCN)

In an effort to improve and clarify the transfer of courses between community colleges and public universities, and as charged by SB 233, a common course numbering (CCN) system was created by the Oregon Transfer Council to align course numbers, titles, credits, and outcomes for high transfer courses across all 24 public higher education institutions in Oregon.

At this time, 10 courses have been aligned and updated under this system. All CCN courses are identified by a 'Z' at the end of the course number, e.g. WR 121Z.

Many courses require prerequisite courses to be successfully completed prior to enrollment. Review the Courses section of this catalog for prerequisite information 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 requirement, 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 will need to request that your instructor give you an override in their Webrunner account. Then, you must register for the course in your Webrunner account.

During the first week of the term,you will need an instructor override to add a class. An instructor can also give you a capacity override to add a class that is full. Registration deadlines for less-than-full-term classes are listed in the online schedule of classes.

Students 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 listed in the schedule.

(Note: “W” grades are considered non-completion grades for financial aid.)


Auditing Classes

Students can request audit status either at the time of registration or during the add period for a class. Instructors reserve the right to disenroll students who have not met prerequisite requirements for the course they want to audit. 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 your work. A grade of "AU" will be recorded on the transcript.
