Returning Students

Registration for all CGCC credit courses must be done on-line.  Following are the registration procedures.

Step 1 – Access your Program Planner at www.cgcc.cc.or.us.

  • Click on the “Online Services” link on the right side of the page.
  • Select “CGCC Online Student Resources”.
  • Log in (your password is defaulted to your birth date (MMDD) until you change it).
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Program Planner”.  Review the courses that you and your advisor have planned for you to take and insure that you are approved to register (in red at the top of the page). If your OK to register has not been activated, make an appointment with an advisor well before registration begins. Together you will plan your courses and you will receive the OK to register for up to one year.

Step 2 – Check the priority registration schedule to determine when you should register. Registration priority is based on the total number of credits earned at CGCC/PCC.  You may also register any registration day after your priority day up to the first day of the term.


Step 3 – Register online.  If you do not have an advisor’s approval see Step 1. Tuition and fees must be paid in full or by installment by the deadline. Payment can be made by check, cash, money order, VISA, MasterCard or Discover at the CGCC Business Office. Online payment by credit card is also available.

Registration Priority – Registration priority is based on the number of credits successfully completed at CGCC/PCC.  It does not include courses attempted or graded F, W, I, AUD, or NP.  Students may also register on any scheduled registration day or time after their priority day up to the first day of the term.
