Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis for students. Applicants who have been accepted to Columbus Technical College and current students not on academic suspension are eligible to register for classes. Students enrolling under the special admissions provisions are also eligible to register for certain classes.

First semester students may register for a maximum of 15 credit hours. Exceptions must be approved by the Dean for the division in which they are enrolled, and processed by the Registrar's Office. Students seeking permission to register for more than 15 credit hours per semester should have a GPA of 3.0 or better for the previous semester.
