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.
