Registration Information for Spring 2016

Open registration ends January 19, 2016 and the 15-week Spring term begins on January 20. The 11-week term starts February 17.

All payments are due at time of registration for Spring 2016; students will be dropped for non-payment at 11:50 pm that day if payment in full is not received, or if a payment plan has not been set up.  In other words, if you register for a class on Monday, payment must be received by 11:50 pm Monday night.

If you are dropped for non-payment, you will be dropped from ALL of your classes for the term – please pay on time to ensure you get the classes you want!

If you need to speak with a counselor, call 732-224-2555. Walk-in advising is available, but wait times may be significant as the start of the semester gets closer, so please allow extra time. Contact your regional location for additional opportunities to speak with a counselor or advisor.


Here a few dates that students should know:

  • The Lincroft campus and all locations will be closed on January 18 in observance of Dr. King’s birthday.
  • January 19 is the last day to drop Spring 15-week courses for a 100% refund of tuition and fees.
  • January 26 will be the last day for an 80% refund of tuition only for dropped classes.
  • February 2 is the last day to add/drop classes for a 60% refund of tuition only.

For additional information on important college dates, students should review the Important Term Dates page.

Priority Registration

Currently registered students, after completing one semester, will receive priority registration passes in their Brookdale student email account. The initial days of each registration period are reserved for these returning students, to ensure their access to the courses they require to complete their degree programs. On your priority pass is a time and a date: you may register at that time and date or any date after that. Students are urged to take advantage of priority passes since courses fill up quickly and lines become lengthy later in the registration period. (Provisional students will not receive a priority registration pass.)

Open Registration

All other students may register on or after the first day of open registration listed in the current term’s Important Date information. Students with credits from other institutions, or who have relevant field experience, may be required to provide transcripts or meet with Brookdale faculty to determine eligibility to take particular courses.
