    Priority registration begins November 6: The FA and college request your support in sharing information on priority registration with your students. Encourage your students to meet with an advisor now and to register during the time frame that is especially designed for them (they'll see their dates when they log in to MySCCC) to ensure that they are not closed out of the courses they need.
