Getting Started

I want to register for classes.


What is MySVC?

MySVC allows you to register, add or drop classes, pay tuition online, check your email, store and share documents, update your contact information, and much more. To access MySVC, visit

Need help using MySVC? Contact the Registration Office, (360) 416-7697 or or Live Help With MySVC.


When you are on a waitlist and an opening occurs, you will be automatically registered in that course, so be sure to check the waitlist daily to avoid unwanted debt! To check your position, to see if you have been enrolled in a class, or to see if you have been removed from the waitlist, login to MySVC and click check/drop Waitlist. Note: It is your responsibility to monitor your movement on the waitlist because you will be charged for all classes in which you are enrolled from the waitlist.

New Students

Before you can register, make sure you have applied for admission. You will receive a SID (Student Identification Number) and PIN (Personal Identification Number). As a new degree seeking student you are required to attend a group advising session before you can register at SVC.  To schedule a group advising session at the Mount Vernon Campus, contact Admissions at 360-416-7697; at the Whidbey Island Campus, contact 360-679-5319.

If you live out of the area you may set up a phone meeting with a counselor by calling 360-416-7654 at Mount Vernon Campus or 360-679-5319 at Whidbey Island Campus.


Returning and Current Students

It's your choice, you can register online or in-person. Note: if your address, phone number, or email has changed since you last attended, log onto MySVC, using your SID and PIN, and update your information. Returning SVC Students are strongly recommended to see a counselor before registering for classes.

Non-Degree Seeking, Community Ed & Computer Training Institute students

It's your choice, you can register in-person, online, or by mail.
