North Lake College Says Goodbye to Late Registration

Fall Deadline Date Is August 21
IRVING, Texas- Students may register for Fall Semester at North Lake College (NLC) beginning Monday, June 17. Fall registration will close August 21, one week prior to the first day of classes at all four NLC campus locations.
“I register as soon as the schedule is up,” shares NLC returning student Heather Hoskins. “It allows me to get into the classes I need with the professors that I want.” Hoskins says registering early also provides access to class times that best fit her personal and work schedules.
While late registration is a practice of many community colleges, North Lake has decided to keep its hard deadline for course registration after seeing a correlation between course registration time and student perseverance. The college says the new process has benefitted incoming students – giving them time to add or drop courses, purchase books, acquire a parking tag, or print out the DART schedule. Students registering for Summer Sessions, however, may still register until classes start.
“The earlier registration deadline allows our students ample time to prepare for classes,” explains De’Aira Holloway, Director of Academic Advising. “It also allows the instructors enough time to notify students if a class does not meet its [minimum] enrollment.”
To help students transition, NLC Admissions, Academic Advising and Financial Aid will offer extended office hours and online assistance during registration. Students can also directly e-mail the Registrar’s office at
Central Campus Academic Advising is open Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Special registration and holiday hours may be found online at
