What is "Register for Sections"?

This is the place you will go to add and drop course sections. Within Register for Sections you can:

  • ADD course sections: add the section you want to your "preferred list of sections", which is similar to a shopping cart on many web sites. From that preferred list, you can enroll in the section. NOTE: sections cannot be added via eResources after the start date for that section has passed.
  • DROP sections: use this process if you want to drop (remove) a section or sections from your schedule. JJC does not allow students to drop sections via the web if the refund date for that section has passed. Instead, students need to visit the Main Campus Registration Office, A-1020, or the Romeoville Campus office.
  • SEARCH and register for sections: search for a course, then add it to your preferred list, and finally add the section to your schedule. This is a fairly slow process because several steps are involved.
  • EXPRESS REGISTRATION: the quickest and most efficient way to sign up for course sections. To use it you MUST know the section's synonym OR the subject, course number, section number and term. Before you visit express registration you should research this information and have it all ready and decided. Then you just need to plug in the data and submit.
  • REGISTER for previously selected sections: use this if you have already placed sections on your preferred list and would now like to register for those sections.
