Class Permissions

While registering for classes, students may encounter various errors that prevent them from registering. These errors include: closed class, requisites not met, department consent required, instructor consent required, and late adds.

Wait Lists

Wait lists are a tool to help students get automatically enrolled into classes that are full. If a class is full but has an available wait list (noted by a yellow triangle in the Schedule of Classes), students may be able to add themselves to the wait list.
