Moorpark College

Applying to Moorpark College?

Seniors and students that will be taking Moorpark College classes during high school, please use this MPCC Application Information (PDF) as a guide to help you complete the application process.  After you have completed all the steps, check your portal for registration dates for your classes.  

Priority registration means you can register for those popular classes before they fill up so you have a better chance of getting the classes that fit your ideal schedule.  Ensuring you have priority registration can also help you on the track to graduate/transfer within the two years!  Seniors, in order to receive priority registration, you need to complete the following:

  1. Create an application via OpenCCCapply (see pdf, above)
  2. Follow the myVCCCD wizard link in your email (you will receive within 3 days after completing step 1)
    • complete the myVCCCD set-up wizard using the link you will receive after completing step 1(see pdf, above)
  3. Complete the English and Math assessment within your myVCCCD portal
  4. Complete the online orientation within your myVCCCD portal
  5. Complete the Abbreviated Ed. Plan through DegreeWorks (top right-hand link on the main page of your portal-with a picture of a graduation cap)
    • Once you have entered a few courses (this is just for an idea, you don't have to register for those courses), click "SAVE but DO NOT SUBMIT FOR APPROVAL"
    • If you save and submit for approval, this will place a hold on your account
  6. Log in to your myVCCCD portal to check your registration date
  7. Log in to your myVCCCD portal to check any holds on your account (through the admissions and records office or through the financial aid office)
  8. Address any holds you may have on your account before your assigned registration date
  9. Make a plan for your schedule of classes-use the online course catalog and consult the IGETC (gen ed classes)  
    • It is a good idea to have several different schedules mapped out in case a class you've selected is full or you are waitlisted. 
    • If you do this the day you register, YOU WILL BE FRAZZLED AND FRUSTRATED
  10. Register the DAY OF your date.  

You can also reach out to your Moorpark College Counselor (organized by Major). If you are attempting to enroll in a class that needs prerequisite clearance, make sure to submit the correct form.

Please contact your counselor for any help with this process!  We know it can seem daunting and overwhelming, but we are here to help!
