Registration Tips

  • Single click on all links and buttons. Double clicking may result in your being logged out ('Login expired' message).
  • If a course is closed (has a “C” beside it) but you have received a Capacity Permit from the department, view the permit and CRN on the “Check Your Registration Status” page and enter the CRN on the Worksheet.
  • If a course has a co-requisite (i.e. a lab), enter the CRNs for both courses (i.e., lecture and lab) to the worksheet and select SUBMIT to complete the transaction.
  • If you are logged in for a period of time without performing any action, your login will expire.
  • Your Alternate PIN is a six digit number. Occasionally a student will get only get the last three digits of the Alternate PIN. For example, if the Alternate PIN is given as 123, the Alternate PIN must be added as 000123.
  • Waitlisting information is available online.

Common Registration Errors

  • Prerequisite and Test Score error -- you are attempting to register for a class section that has a prerequisite or test score. Sometimes this is because the course requires that you register for both the lecture and the lab sections at the same time (same transaction). Please note, when registering for lecture and lab classes, if you receive a time conflict for one class, you will get a prerequisite error for the other because the two classes are prerequisites of one another.

    You may also get a "Prerequisite and Test Score" error if you are trying to register for a class that is restricted to a certain group of students -- for example, honors students or students in specific learning community. Usually these sections have a note listed right below the section with information about this requirement.
  • Campus Restriction –- you are attempting to register for a class section that is restricted to a specific student campus. This is most often seen when Main Campus students try to register for a class restricted to an off-campus cohort.
  • Class Restriction –- you are attempting to register for a class section that is restricted to a certain class, such as Juniors or Seniors.
  • Time conflict with CRN 12345 –- you are attempting to register for a class section that meets at the same time (or overlaps) with the CRN listed.
  • College Restriction -- you are attempting to register for a class section that is restricted to students in a specific college.
  • Instructor Permission Req or Dept Chair Permission Required or Dean Permission Required -- you are attempting to register for a class section that requires a permit for the appropriate permission (i.e., Instructor, Department Chair or Dean).
  • Closed Section -- you are attempting to register for a class section that does not have any available seats.
  • Closed - [#] Waitlisted -- you are attempting to register for a class section that is closed but has a waitlist. The [#] indicates how many students are already on the waitlist. You may add yourself to the waitlist.
  • Closed - Waitlist Full -- you are attempting to register for a class section that is closed and has a full waitlist. You may want to check enrollment at another time to see if a waitlist seat becomes available.
  • Open - [#] Waitlisted -- you are attempting to register for a class section that now has an open seat but has a waitlist. The [#] indicates how many students are already on the waitlist. You may add yourself to the waitlist.
  • Open - Waitlist Filled -- you are attempting to register for a class section that now has an open seat but has a full waitlist. The open seat is now available to the first person on the waitlist. Once that person registers for the class, a waitlist seat will open up. You may want to check enrollment at another time to see if a waitlist seat becomes available.
  • Duplicate Course with Section 12345 –- you are attempting to register for a class section that you are already registered for.
  • Field of Study Restriction – Major -- you are attempting to register for a class section that is restricted to students in a specific major.

For undergraduate students in a Fall or Spring term, the maximum allowable hours is 18 hours. If you need to take more than the maximum hours, you should contact your Dean’s Office.
  • Program Restriction -- you are attempting to register for a class section that is restricted to students in a specific program (major).

  • Reserve Closed -- you are attempting to register for a class section which has been set up by the department with some seats reserved for specific groups (e.g., declared majors in that department or a specific minor). You may want to check enrollment at another time to see if a seat becomes available.
