Time conflicts occur when two classes are scheduled at the same time. This can prevent enrollment, including from a waitlist.

Add/drop consent

Instructor or department consent is sometimes required to add or drop a class.

Enrollment appointments and phases

Enrollment appointments and phases determine when a student is able to enroll, drop, swap, and update classes.

Reserved seats

Reserved seats are set aside for certain student populations. They may affect your ability to enroll or get enrolled from a waitlist.

Unit limits

The maximum number of units that a student can enroll in during an enrollment period.

How to plan for enrollment

Getting the classes and schedule you want requires planning. You need to know what courses you want and have a back up plan if you can’t get your first choice.
