Registration & Records

Register for your classes. Declare a degree that matches your studies. Request your transcript.

Registration and Records is open by telephone and email only. Please call (360) 867-6180 or email

You must be admitted to Evergreen to register online. Apply for admission or find out how to register as a non-admitted (special) student.

Before you register, check out the Academic Catalog. Our advisors can help you plan your academic path and make smart choices with your education. If you have veterans’ benefits to use, visit the Veterans Resource Center for assistance.

Registration opens by “time ticket” the Monday after the quarterly Academic Fair. Learn more about time tickets and when (and how) you can register.

Open registration ends at 4 pm on Friday before the quarter starts. Check your registration details on My Evergreen.

During the first week of class, you can continue to register online with a faculty override until Friday at 4 pm. After that, you must use a paper registration form. You may also be charged a late fee. Find out more about changing your registration after the start of the quarter.

Disaster Avoidance Tips

When your registration just doesn’t look right

If you see anything about your registration that doesn't seem right, please let us know right away. The sooner you tell us, the more quickly we can figure out what's happened and help you fix it.

One of the most common problems comes from issues with waitlist priority. Make sure you've adjusted your waitlists to reflect what you really want! Learn more about how waitlists work.

Register for the right number of credits

Most full-time undergraduate students should plan on taking 12 to 16 credits per quarter. Taking any more than 16 credits is a serious decision. There are restrictions on what you can take at 17 – 20 credits to help you be most successful. No student may take more than 20 credits per quarter, including credits taken at any other college at the same time.

Deal with account holds

What can cause a hold: fines, late tuition, late fees, missing transcripts, missing immunization documents, or bouncing email.

You can see if you have a hold at any time in your “to-do” box in My Evergreen. Click through to see what kind of hold, who to contact, and whether it affects your registration. You’ll still need to talk to someone to get your hold lifted after you resolve the problem.

Holds can be placed at any time! Be sure to check before registration opens to make sure you don't have any holds that could keep you from registering.

Take leave without losing ground

If you have completed at least one quarter at Evergreen, you can choose to not register for classes for up to four quarters (including summer) and still be considered a student at Evergreen. Your college email will continue to be active during this time and you will continue to receive college emails at that address.

You can formally declare a leave of absence, so that financial aid knows to adjust your package. You'll indicate when you are planning to return to Evergreen on the leave form.

After four quarters absent, you will be formally withdrawn and need to reapply for admission. You have the right to request to be withdrawn from the college at any time.

There are financial aid consequences to withdrawing or taking a leave of absence. Contact the Financial Aid office if you have questions.
