I have a Drop/Add form that has been signed and stamped by the department that gives me permission to add an "R" class that is closed. Can I use Web Reg to add the class?
No. The form must be processed in person at the Registration Building. The registration staff needs to create an additional seat in the class and ensure that the seat is given to you.
I have a Drop/Add form that has been signed and stamped to add a "D" class and the department tells me I have "D" permission on the system. Can I use Web Registration to add the class?
If the department has increased the class size capacity to accommodate you, you can use web registration to add the class. You should check with that department to verify this action was taken.
I need to take these classes together, but they conflict. What can I do?
Students must obtain permission from the instructors of the classes that conflict to enroll. You may download and print the Conflict Form. Students must submit the completed form in person at the REG building.
