New and Returning Students
New students are those who have never attended Cypress or Fullerton College. Registration priority is given in the order the applications for admission are received.
Returning students are those students who previously attended Cypress or Fullerton College but did not register for a class during the previous semester. Registration priority is given in the order the applications for admission are received.
Continuing Students were registered in a class at Cypress or Fullerton College the previous semester long enough to receive a grade (A, B, C, D, F, I, IP, NC, CR, or W) on their permanent record and are given priority registration based on the number of units completed at Cypress and Fullerton Colleges.
