New and Readmitted Student Registration

Please scroll down and read all information

Welcome to New River CTC! Here you will find information on scheduling an advising appointment to register for classes once your admission is complete.

First-time freshman, Readmitted, Transfer, Transient and Special students who are not pursuing a Selective Admission program will register for classes once your admission is complete through the Student Success Center their first semester or for a readmitted student, upon returning to the college. These students will be assigned to their academic advisor after their initial advising appointment for future registration purposes.

If you are planning to major in a selective admission program, you will work with an academic advisor in that department to schedule your courses once your admission is complete. These programs include:

Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
Practical Nursing (LPN)
Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA)
Registered Nursing (LPN TO RN)
Surgical Technology 

For a select admission program, a student must first apply for general admission to the College. A student will need to satisfy prerequisites in order to become eligible for the program. Certificate and Degree program information may be found at

A student will also complete a selective admission program application directly through the department in which they are seeking admission. Information can be found on the department’s webpage above. Please contact the department if you have questions regarding the application process.

In order to be accepted into a selective admission program, a student must be fully admitted with their general admission to the college and have completed online orientation in order to register for classes.

If you have questions regarding your general admission status, contact your local campus Office of Admissions or email
