Priority Registration Currently registered students, after the initial semester of study, 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 thereafter. 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. To access Important Dates, please return to our homepage at http://www.brookdalecc.edu and click on the applicable term in the "Term Information" area located at the top of the page. 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.
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 your "MyBrookdale Portal" 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.
