During registration, new students create class schedules and meet with personal registration assistants to ensure that classes selected fulfill requirements of the desired major.
Pre-registration is offered during the preceding semester for returning students to create schedules and meet with advisors. Many pre-registered students do not make any changes at registration, but personal registration assistants are available at registration to meet with any student.
Follow your Welcome Notice schedule for registration times and locations.
Step 1: Once you are checked in, follow the instructions on your Welcome Notice.
You will receive a thorough checklist to help you complete everything you need to do before classes begin.
Step 2: Make a plan.
Following the schedule on your Welcome Notice will help you plan for all responsibilities and required meetings. Your Registration Booklet will also provide valuable information, including alternate times and locations.
All new students must take both the English and mathematics placement exams. Other required and optional exams are listed in the registration materials. Placement exams help determine your level of achievement in order to place you in a class best suited to your educational background and goals. It is not possible to fail these exams, and scores are not placed on your transcript. There is no charge to take placement exams.
Step 3: Follow the link to the registration page on Eagle’s Nest to complete your registration forms.
Step 4: Register on Eagle’s Nest.
If you are a new student, you must meet with a personal registration assistant to register. Returning students who pre-registered do not need to meet with a registration assistant, but registration assistants will be available to answer questions. We recommend following the sequence listed for your major on your checksheet/plan of study or in the PCC catalog (if you are a new student) to avoid future class conflicts.
Step 5: Purchase your textbooks in the MacKenzie Great Hall.
After registering, you will receive a class schedule and textbook list needed to purchase textbooks. Cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) are accepted.
When you purchase your textbooks, be sure to get your copy of the Activities Planner. It gives times and locations for events and campus facility hours. Information about the Pensacola area, coupons, and discounts for some local businesses are also included.
College Admission Test
If you are a new student and have not already taken a college admission test such as the ACT or SAT, you will be able to take the ACT on Sat., Sept. 15, or Sat., Feb. 2.
