What is the Enrollment Management Period?

This is the period of time when the online registration is shut down District-wide. This means that students cannot add or drop courses via the online ACES portal. 

The enrollment management period typically takes place one week before classes begin for each part of term (Regular 16 week courses, Start II, Flex I, Flex II, etc).

Can I make class schedule changes during the Enrollment Management period?

We can assist students in adding Northwest Vista classes if the student is “registration ready” prior to the week of the Enrollment Management Period.  Students must visit the Cypress Campus Center (CCC), room 200 for assistance.

To be considered registration ready students must meet the following criteria:

1. Must have an active/accepted application on file

2. Must be cleared of all holds

Please note:  While we cannot add you into courses at another Alamo College, we can assist you in processing a drop for all Alamo Colleges.  Visit Admissions and Records, CCC room 100 for assistance.
