Common Registration Errors and Holds

  • Link Errors – This indicates that you have not registered for a lecture/lab (ex. A1, A2) or a recitation/studio combination at the same time. You need to register for a credit part of the course and the additional non-credit component at the same time, ex. CHMY 121-001 at 4.00 credits and CHMY 121-018 at 0.00 credits. Some courses have three parts: a lecture, lab and recitation.
  • Consent of Instructor/ Restricted Entry - indicates that an instructor or department administrator is required to either register you for the course, or sign an Add/Drop form to be brought to the Registrar's Office for manual entry into the course. Please contact the department offering the course to see the method they provide.
  • Time Conflict Errors – This indicates that two or more of your classes overlap in time.  You will either need to adjust your courses so there are no time conflicts, or bring a signed Add/Drop form to the Registrar’s Office for manual entry into the course.
  • Closed Sections – indicates that all of the seats for the class are full or the instructor is only allowing students in with an Add/Drop form.
  • Prerequisites – indicates that there are courses you must successfully complete before you may register in a more advanced course.  See the course description in the catalog for specifics.  Test scores may also satisfy prerequisites.  You must either have successfully completed (or be currently enrolled in) a prerequisite in order to register for the more advanced course.  Be advised that if you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite and do not successfully complete it, you may be dropped from the advanced course.  Courses taken in high school do not satisfy prerequisites.
  • Intent to Register - If you are an accepted student but have not attended the previous semester you might have to submit an intent to register form. See See Intent to Register Form
