Four Steps of Registration

1.   Admit

If you are 18 years old or older or have a high school diploma or equivalent, you will need a completed application for admission, proof of residency and an official transcript.

2.   Advise

Academic advising at Collin will ensure that you are taking the courses you need to meet your academic goals. Additionally, you may receive course scheduling assistance and/or transfer information.

Students should meet with an academic advisor to check for holds, options for class registration and to prove prerequisites.  Students must submit a grade report or unofficial transcript in order to set up prerequisites in the areas of reading, math and writing before registration.

Schedule Changes 
Students who have already registered and need to make schedule changes may do so during online registration or on campus.

During online registration, you may add and/or drop classes by accessing CougarWeb.

Students may add and/or drop classes using CougarWeb through the first four days of classes during a long semester and during the first day of Summer or mini-semester terms. For express and weekend courses, registration deadlines will vary. Please see an advisor for details. For 16-week classes, there is a registration hard stop deadline of the fourth day of the semester.

Single Summer term adds and/or drops may be completed via CougarWeb through the first day of the term.


A $10 late fee will be assessed for students who wait until the first day of the term to register for the first time.

Refund credits are calculated as specified by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) refunds rules. Refunds for 100% are only issued for drops occurring prior to each term's start date, based on the week the course begins and not the first day of an individual's class. As of the first day of the term session, refund credits for dropped/withdrawn courses will be reduced to 70% and then graduated down to no refund credit, per the THECB refund schedule.

Any student intending to audit a course may register for that course on or after the first day of the term in person only in any Admissions area of Student Enrollment and Services Office.

Continuing Education registration is also now available online at CE Registration.
