Course Search & Enroll - "You are not able to enroll in courses" Error


This document explains the meaning of the "You are not able to enroll in courses" error message and how to resolve it.

What it means:

Only active UW-Madison students who have been set up in the enrollment system as eligible to take classes are able to enroll.

If you are a student, you may see this message if your student status has changed, for example:

  • You studied abroad in a program not affiliated with UW-Madison and haven't yet completed the re-entry process.
  • You have not been enrolled in classes for a semester or more (also requires the re-entry process).
  • You have previously applied to graduate and are now attempting to enroll in a term beyond that anticipated graduation term.

Unable to enroll in courses

What to do:

If you are a student, none of the above applies to you, and you think you should be able to enroll in that term, please contact the Help Desk for assistance: Get Help from DoIT

The Help Desk will gather all necessary information from you and will contact Student Services on your behalf.
