Registration Restrictions

Courses can sometimes carry certain restrictions designed to ensure appropriate registration. When you enter in the Course Reference Numbers (CRN) to register for classes online, if a course carries a restriction you will recieve an error message. If you receive this message, you will not be able to register for this course.

The status column identifies the type of registration restrictions for each CRN. You can resolve some errors yourself (i.e., select an open section of a course), but others will require that you see your academic advisor.

Specific registration restrictions include:

  • Closed Section
  • Permission Required - i.e., department approval
  • Restrictions
    • College Restriction - i.e., College of Business only
    • Major Restriction - i.e., Business Majors only
    • Class Restriction - i.e., Seniors only
    • Level Restriction - i.e., Graduates only
  • Time Conflict
  • Prerequisite/Test Score Error - Necessary requirements to take the current course
  • Co-requisite Errors - i.e., EXAM 080
  • Link Error - i.e., Multiple Course Parts
  • Max Hours Exceeded
    • more than 20 credit hours for undergraduates
    • more than 12 credit hours for graduates

Closed Section

A closed section status supersedes all other errors, meaning any other registration error may be hidden behind it. This status indicates that the section is full to its maximum seating.

Link Error

A link error occurs when a course has multiple parts (i.e., lecture, lab, and/or recitation) that must be taken in conjunction with one another. Although these parts have unique CRNs, they are one complete course when taken together. Only one part of the course, the lecture if applicable, will be associated with a grade and credits. The lab and/or recitation that must be taken with it will have zero credits and will not receive a unique grade.

  • Lectures have sections like A, B, C, etc. and link identifiers of L1, L2, L3, etc. depending on how many lectures with unique times are being offered. Each number in the series (L1, L2, L3, etc.) has a specific set of lab and/or recitation sections that can be taken with it.
  • Lab series have section numbers like 061, 061, 063, etc. and have link identifiers of Z1, Z2, Z3, etc.
  • Recitation series have section numbers like 001, 002, 003, etc. and have link identifiers of R1, R2, R3, etc.

To correct a link error, register for courses with common link identifiers (i.e., L1, Z1, R1 or L3, Z3, R3).
