You may lose priority enrollment status if either of the following are true:

  • You have completed more than 90 degree-applicable units within the Los Rios Community College District.
  • You have been on probation or dismissal for two consecutive semesters.

If you lose priority enrollment, then you can still enroll in classes during open enrollment.

Please allow two working days for your appeal to be processed. Your appeal results will be sent to your Los Rios Gmail.

Things to Know Before You Appeal

  1. The grounds for an appeal are limited and specific. Review the appeal form to make sure you meet the grounds for a successful appeal.
  2. Appeals are specific to an enrollment cycle, so you need to submit an appeal for each enrollment cycle for which you have lost priority status.
  3. A successful appeal for loss of priority enrollment also reinstates the California College Promise Grant (formerly BOG fee waiver) eligibility lost due to poor academic/progress performance. Learn more about how to maintain satisfactory academic progress.

Priority Enrollment for First-Time College Students

If you are a first-time college student, then you must complete all pre-enrollment steps by the established deadlines to receive priority 1 enrollment. If you miss the deadline but still complete the pre-enrollment steps, then the best priority you will be able to receive is priority 2. Otherwise, you can enroll in classes during open enrollment.

The deadlines to get priority enrollment for first-time students are as follows:

  • April 1 for summer semester
  • April 1 for fall semester
  • November 1 for spring semester
