LARGO, Md.— Through the Don’t Lose Your Seat campaign, Prince George’s Community College encourages students to register now for the fall 2013 semester in the student services wing of Bladen Hall on the Largo campus, Prince George’s Community College at University Town Center and Laurel College Center. Returning students may register by visiting the college’s Web site at www.pgcc.edu or by calling the Information Center at 301-336-6000.  

As part of Don’t Lose Your Seat, students receive one-stop service including academic advising, registration and financial aid counseling as they select areas of study and finalize financial obligations. The purpose of the campaign, which is part of the college’s completion agenda, is to educate students on the importance of early registration, ensure students select the classes, times, and locations that best fit their needs, and help them maximize all of the resources available from the college. Ensuring that students complete their educational goals is the college’s top priority. 

“The college utilizes a streamlined registration process that leverages the latest technology and a well-trained staff to ensure students are on the correct path to reach their educational goals,” said Tyjaun A. Lee, vice president for student services. “Don’t Lose Your Seat helps students focus on planning ahead and avoiding the last-minute rush and lines in the fall,” she added.

Students earn degrees, transfer to four-year institutions, prepare for careers and learn job skills that are in high demand. Students may register now through July 15 for any fall semester course until 11:59 p.m. the day before the class begins. After July 15, students must pay for classes on the same day they register, or they will be dropped from their classes.
