error “Problems with course” validation message
When there is a reason why you can’t go forward with enrollment, you’ll see a validation message to help you make a change. Common situations include not meeting the prerequisites for the course, needing permission to take the course, or exceeding the number of credits allowed in the term.
error “Sections not chosen” message
The Cart will also remind you to choose your section(s) for the course.
Schedule (add all courses)
Before you enroll, you can use the Scheduler to compare different weekly schedules of sections in your Cart courses. You can also add in blocks of time (“breaks”) during which you don’t want any courses planned, reserving time for a job, student clubs, sports activities, etc.
For more information about the Scheduler tool, see Course Search & Enroll - Scheduler Tips.
- Scheduler imports the courses in your Cart, ignoring any validation messages.
- Sections changes made in Scheduler will update these sections in your cart.
Edit your cart
You can delete/enroll in one or more courses at a time.
For more information about the enrollment process, see Course Search & Enroll - Add & Enroll in Classes.
Swapping a course replaces one of your enrolled courses with one from your Cart. The swap process confirms that you were able to get into the new course, before dropping your enrolled course.
Select the checkbox for the class you wish to drop, click the three-dot menu, and select the "Swap course" option.
Choose the courses you want to swap in the next dialog box.
For more information about swapping classes, see Course Search & Enroll - Swapping a Class.
Dropping a course means you will no longer be enrolled in that course.
Select the checkbox for the class you wish to drop, click the DROP button that appears, and confirm this action in the next dialog box.
For more information about dropping classes, see Course Search & Enroll - Dropping a Class.
