How do I read the schedule? The Registration screen is asking for “CRN’s,” what are they?

Every class in the UA system is assigned a Course Reference Number, or CRN. This five-digit number is needed in order to register into that class. The CRN is listed in the schedule for each class. The room number, meeting day or days, and meeting time are also listed.

What does your tuition pay for?

Tuition is the charge for the actual college instruction. You pay tuition in units of instructional time, called credits. In the schedule, Cr=credit. A three-credit class typically will meet for about 2.5 hours of instructional time per week, for a fifteen-week semester. Since you pay by credit, a three-credit class will cost more (and require more class and homework time) than a one-credit class.

How do I know how much my classes and fees will cost?

The KPC web site lists the tuition and fees for each semester. Also, once you have registered: Go back to the Registration screen and click on Registration Fee Assessment.
