How to register for winter and spring 2021 semester at Compton College


Keeping on track with his schoolwork is a priority for Compton College student Steve Hsin. This focus has already paid off for the determined student. After just a year and a half, Hsin plans to transfer to a university this spring.

A key to his success, he said, is a full schedule of classes.

“I’m on a pre-nursing track and taking the maximum classes during winter term has enabled me to complete all my transfer requirements in less than two years,” Hsin said. “I enrolled at Compton College in fall 2019 and have taken a full load every semester and term since then. I’ve been accepted to the competitive nursing program at California State University, Long Beach beginning in spring 2021.”

Registration is in progress at Compton College for winter 2021 and spring 2021. Students have access to a complete menu of support services to help them succeed with online/distance learning. In addition to financial aid and assistance grants, Compton College offers students laptop computer and Wi-Fi hotspot loans, free food resources, online counseling and tutoring, as well as online workshops and assistance with the enrollment and registration process.

The short winter 2021 term begins Jan. 5, 2021. The winter term provides a great opportunity for students to get ahead in their educational plan and complete up to seven units in five weeks! This term is perfect for helping students graduate sooner, improve a GPA, repeat an essential course, and lighten the course load for spring, as well as satisfy any prerequisites. Students may register via MyCompton, accessible from the college website at

The full-term spring 2021 classes begin Feb. 16 and end on June 11, 2021, with midterm classes also available. Continuing students should check MyCompton for their spring registration appointment dates/times.

For students who need to apply for admission, complete the Compton College online application in a few easy Steps to Enrollment online. Students may also complete the Steps to Enrollment by joining a virtual workshop that offers assistance with the process.
