Course Scheduling, Enrollment Limits, and Waitlists
To give priority to evening students for evening courses, a certain number of seats have been set aside during the priority registration period for evening students in evening courses. For each elective courses taught in both the evening division and the day division in an academic year, 50% of the places in the evening division course are allocated to evening division students who have the same registration priority as competing day division students. For each elective courses taught in the evening division but not in the day division in that academic year, 25% of the places are allocated to evening division students who have the same registration priority as competing day division students. Day division students who have the same registration priority may register for places allocated to evening division students but not claimed by an evening division student. To actualize this policy, the enrollment limits of evening courses have been temporarily lowered and are adjusted as the evening seats are filled by evening students. To permit students to enroll in courses of greater than 3 credits during the 1st appointment time, the credit loads of some courses have been temporarily lowered. For example: Clinic: Tax Clinic is in fact a 6 credit course, but is temporarily scheduled for 3 credits to permit priority registration.
Quick comment about waitlists
Pay attention to the message you get when you signup for class that says: Success/Messages" generally means you've been added to a course waiting list and not actually enrolled on the course. Waitlists will be updated as time permits during the week of enrollment appointments, but most certainly immediately AFTER that week. Students are automatically enrolled in courses from waiting lists as space opens up and are not notified of this adjustment to their schedule. Students must be check their schedule to see if they have been enrolled in waitlisted courses. It is therefore a good idea to remove yourself from a waiting list if you no longer remain interested in the course.
Please direct any questions you may have regarding the course selection process to the registrar's office.
