Have you completed Step 1. Apply for Admission and Step 2: Complete Registration Requirements? Yes? Excellent! The next step is to Register for Classes.

Step 3: Register for Classes

You should meet with an advisor and review your degree plan before you start picking classes. Your degree plan will keep you on track. You can check your degree plan through Cougar Compass and register for classes using CougarWeb. In CougarWeb, you can also view classes and availability, register, pay tuition, view your financial aid status, access Collin email and more. 

Collin College offers flexible course scheduling. Learn more about our course options.

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

You can 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.


Adds and/or drops for a single summer term may be completed via CougarWeb through the first day of the term.

Once you have registered and need to make schedule changes, you can do so during online registration.

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


Is the class you wanted full? Sign up for the waitlist (after the early registration payment date, but prior to the first day of the semester). When you receive a registration add error, select “Waitlisted” in the Action box and then select “Submit Changes.” If a seat becomes available, you will be notified through CougarMail. You will only have 24 hours to confirm and pay.
