Each unit/department/program/faculty has different ways to manage course registration. We recommend visiting their website to determine their requirements.
Is the course full?
Register for a waitlist (if available)
No waitlist? Keep checking the course – other students may drop the course, so seats may become available. Registration is open until the Add/Drop Deadline
Register for the waitlist if it is available. You will be registered if space becomes available.
Section switches are only available under exceptional circumstances. If you are requesting a section switch based on exceptional circumstances please book an appointment with an ESS Academic Advisor to determine your eligibility for consideration.
