How to Register

Registration cannot take place until the student`s application has been processed. 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 for particular courses.

Degree students who are considered restricted must have their course schedule approved by their academic counselor/advisor before they can register for classes. Please see the information listed below regarding online registration to determine if you may be considered restricted. Students within these categories are generally considered unrestricted and can register for classes as long as they have met pre-requisite requirements and are in good academic standing. If you need to schedule an appointment, you can do so by calling (732) 224-2555 or can log in to “AdvisorTrac” by going to and clicking on “MyBrookdale” and then “AdvisorTrac” to schedule your appointment through “AdvisorTrac” accessible once you log in.

Students not registering online must register in person in the Center for Counseling, Admissions & Registration (use parking lot 5) or at their regional location or Branch Campus.

If you have attended Brookdale Community College since Fall 2003, it is more than likely that you have access to Webadvisor through the Brookdale Portal (you must have an active student email account). If you have access, please refer below to determine your eligibility to register online. If you have not attended since Fall 2003, or you are not able to access Webadvisor due to not having an active student email account, you must register in person.
