“Problems with course” and “Sections not chosen” validation messages
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 requisites for the class, needing permission to take the class, or exceeding the number of credits allowed in the term.
The cart will also remind you to choose your section(s) for the course.
Remove class from cart
In the cart, select the checkbox for the class. Select the
Remove button that appears above it.
When you have resolved any validation messages and chosen sections for your classes, and your enrollment appointment time has arrived, you are ready to enroll.
Enroll in all classes in the cart. Select the three-dot menu in the cart. Select the “Enroll all” button that appears.
Or, enroll in one class. Select the checkbox for the class. Select the “Enroll” button that appears above it.
In the pop-up window, review any options for classes, like opting to get on a wait list if the class is full, or taking the class for Honors. When ready, select the “Enroll” button.
“Enrollment failed” messages
When there is a reason why enrollment failed, you’ll see a validation message to explain the problem. Common situations include trying to enroll in a course in which you had already enrolled, or exceeding the number of credits allowed in a term.
