    If your college has not yet email or contacted you back in regards to your submitted application, you'll need to reach out to the Admission & Records Department to follow up with your application.

  • is there an assessment test and orientation requirement

  • Hello Taqdima,

    At most colleges, there will be requirements to complete before you can register for classes if you have never fulfilled them before. We recommend checking your emails that the college has sent over after you applied to Antelope Valley College, they will usually send over your next steps to registration in your welcome email. If you did not receive that welcome email from your college we recommend you contact Admissions and Records at AVC to get your information such as student ID and what other steps you will need to take before you will be allowed to register for classes.

  • I completed online registration on last Sunday 1/24/2021 and received my conformation email with my student id. I could setup with eServices with no issues but when I try to schedule an online appointment with counselor I keep getting the message "INVALID STUDENT ID". I tried it using with /without prefix W but not luck! can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? could this be a sync issues between different services and it would eventually be ok after a few days???

  • Hi ngohari,

    Since this is a college issue, you'll need to actually contact your colleges counseling department so that they can let you know what is wrong and assist you with scheduling an appointment with a counselor.

  • I hope I can register for my guitar class. I am a 70 year old man who has retired and have an A A. Degree from Cypress College and a B.A. from the University of California at Irvine. I just want to learn more to be a better guitar player. Do I need anything else in order to register for this.class? Let me know. Thanks

  • Hi Slick2480,

    To find out if there is anything else that you need to do in order to sign up for the guitar class, you actually will need to contact your colleges Admissions & Records Department. A staff member there will be able to pull up your account and let you know if your all set to register for your classes or if you still need to complete to a couple more registration steps such as assessment/orientation.

  • Regarding issue with scheduling an online appointment with counselor I happen to be correct! that was only a sync issue since the eSARS on-line Appointment system had not been updated with new student data. I could successfully schedule an appointment after 24 hours(a day after!).
