General Registration and Wait-list Information

Blocked Courses: When a course is blocked from registration there is a wait-list to get into that course.    The wait-list will have a “W” in the section number like 1W1 or 2W1.  Please register yourself on the wait-list for a chance to get into the course.

Wait-lists:  Wait-listed students are registered into blocked courses when seats becomes available by the course coordinator or Biology office.  Students who are registered on wait-lists are expected to check on-line to determine whether they have been placed in the course by the department.  Students may not register themselves into blocked courses.

Course Conflicts: Students may not register themselves into conflicting course activities and students may only register for one section of a course not multiple.
