Online Registration

Q: When can I register online?

A. 24 - 48 hours after your application is processed.


Q: I'm having difficulty enrolling in the math class I want to take. What can I do?

A. A mathematics assessment test is required for students enrolling in their first mathematics course at Oakton. If you took the assessment test, the course that you placed into is the course you need to register in. Students transferring to Oakton from another college may not need to take the test, provided they can demonstrate, by transcript or grade card, that the prerequisite for the course has been satisfied. If you feel you met the prerequisite for the course you want to take, please contact the math faculty to request clearance for enrollment.


Note: Oakton limits connections from outside the U.S. to many of its systems, including myOakton. If you plan to be out of the country for part or all of a term, you will not be able to pay your bill, check your grades, register, or perform other transactions usually accessible through myOakton. In addition, some online classes are not accessible from outside the U.S.
