In response to the impact of COVID-19, classes at Community College of Denver (CCD) have been restructured to maintain high quality and safety.
If you are not yet accepted into the College, please begin the steps to enrollment now. All students are assigned an “S Number” (or Student ID Number), which will be used throughout your time at CCD, including registering for classes online at CCDConnect. Below are the steps to help you register. You may also call us or visit the Cyber Center on the first floor of the Confluence Building for assistance.
To register for classes, log in to CCDConnect by entering your username as your Student ID number (S Number) and password. Then click, “login.” Here are some handy tips:
Use this as a guide to look up the classes being offered and schedules.
NOTE: To narrow your search, select the “Advanced Search” button for other options such as “Times,” “Days,” “Instructional Method,” etc., but you must always include “Subject” in your search.
The instructions here will help you select, register and view your schedule.
This is the final step in the registration process, but don't forget to read the additional information provided on this page and other tabs.
It is important that you review your Detailed Student Schedule for the dates and deadlines of each of your classes. Late start and accelerated courses have different start/end dates and different census and withdraw deadlines than regular, full-term classes.
Students on academic suspension are unable to register for courses. Please see the suspension advisor in the Academic Advising and Student Success Center in Confluence Building, room 123 to initiate the reinstatement process.
You should discuss with your advisor the number of courses to sign up for in a semester. The maximum load for all students is 18 credit hours. Special permission may be granted from the Director of Advising to enroll in more than 18 credit hours.
You may audit—or take for no credit—courses listed in the schedule at the regular tuition rate. The deadline to apply to audit a course is the census date (see calendar). You cannot change an “audit” to a “for-credit” class after the census date. The College Opportunity Fund does not apply to audited courses.
It is your responsibility to add or drop courses by the published deadline. Adding or dropping classes may affect financial aid. Please check with the Financial Aid Office for details.
A prerequisite is a required course that must be successfully completed before you can register for the course that identifies that prerequisite. An example of this is CHE 111, General College Chemistry. A student must have taken the prerequisites with a ‘C’ or better in ENG 121 and MAT 121 in order to enroll in CHE 111. Students can refer to the college catalog and class schedule for the required prerequisites of classes.
Most CCD courses have a reading skill prerequisite and/or a required assessment score. You must either take the placement test from the Testing Center or have the equivalent on your transcripts or ACT/SAT test scores to be exempt from the basic skills test.
If you try to enroll in a course without the appropriate prerequisite, the online registration will generate the error “Prereq and Test Score-Error.” You will not be able to register.
When you get the “Prereq and Test Score” error, you have several options, depending on what the prerequisite is:
A co-requisite is a course or requirement that must be completed during the same semester as the course that identifies the co-requisite.
When a class is full and closed for registration, you will have the option to add your name to the waitlist. Once a seat becomes available, the first student on the waitlist will be notified of the opening via their college-assigned student email account. The open seat is then reserved for a period of 24 hours. Students must take action to be added into the class within the time allowed, or the system will notify the next student on the waitlist of the opening.
You can learn more about CCD Waitlisting by watching the Course Registration Waitlist Video.
When a course reaches maximum capacity and is no longer available for registration, students will have the option to waitlist for that section through CCDConnect. If a seat becomes available, the first student on the waitlist will be notified of the opening via their college-assigned student email account. The open seat will only be reserved for a maximum period of 24 hours. Students are not automatically added and must take action to register within the time allowed, or the open seat will be offered to the next student in the waitlist queue. All courses listed in the class schedule, with the exception of Open Learning courses, will have the waitlist option when all seats are filled.
You can waitlist for only one section of the same course. For example, you cannot waitlist for ENG 121-001 and ENG 121-002 at the same time.
If space becomes available, the first person on the waitlist will receive an automated email from the College. That student is given 24 hours to register online for the course through CCDConnect. You are expected to check your college-assigned email account on a consistent and frequent basis as you are responsible for all communications received.
If you do not register within the 24-hour window, you will be dropped from the waitlist and the next student on the waitlist will receive an email notification. There are no exceptions.
You will be able to waitlist until the last day to register. If a seat becomes available on that day, you must register before 11:59 p.m. There are no exceptions and faculty will not sign you into a full class, nor will late registration be allowed after the last day to register. Only students who are officially registered are allowed to attend classes. For this reason, you are encouraged to register early for best course selection. Refer to the schedule for specific deadline information.
Please see the step-by-step Waitlist QuickGuide and find out how to view your status on the waitlist.
Tuition and fees can be paid online through CCDConnect or at the Cashier’s Office. Tuition and fees must be paid by the published payment deadline. Please refer to the class schedule for specific payment deadlines. Failure to make payment arrangements will result in being dropped from classes. Re-enrollment will not be allowed.
Only students who are officially registered are allowed to participate in course activities.
No, being on a waitlist does not guarantee you a spot in the class. It also does not guarantee that additional seats will be made available. It is a way for you to wait in line for a possible opening.
If you do not get into a class for which you are waitlisted, you have the following options:
