There is no instructor name for the course I want to take.
The section I want is full.
- Instructors for certain classes (usually at the 100- and
200-level) are not determined until after the open registration period.
Instructor names are continually added as permanent assignments are
A course looks
open, but it doesn't let me in: reserved seats error.
Because of the nature of the priority system, upperclassmen will be able to register first. However, the Math Department offers lecture-section combinations at a wide variety of times. If you find yourself shut out of your first choice, see if you can change other classes in your schedule and register for a different time. In particular, our evening sections (-050 and -051) have many seats available, and fit in with most students' schedules.
Students shift in and out of courses all the time; check
the system regularly to see if seats have become available.

I can't register for a course:
Certain courses, sections, or seats within sections are reserved for certain
populations (often majors, but sometimes freshmen). Some of these notations are made in the registration booklet;
others in the catalog.
(These notations may also be seen from UDSIS by clicking on the course
number when it's in your shopping cart.) Others don't appear
In many cases, these restrictions will be
lifted after all registration appointments have been completed, or
after New Student Orientation in July.
Check back after that time to see if you can register.
However, it is quite possible that these courses will
fill quickly. So if you find yourself shut out of your first
choice, see if you can change other classes in your schedule and register for a different time.
Verify that your major is listed properly in UDSIS.
In special circumstances (you are applying to a new
major, you are the correct major but the system is locking you out,
etc.), complete our Web form.
Do I need to register for a
lecture as well as a
discussion and/or lab? Which goes with which?
Carefully check the prerequisites, either by looking up
the course online or checking the catalog.
Carefully check your transcript under UDSIS to see if it
shows that you have the necessary coursework. If you took the
course at another institution, verify that the transfer-of-credit
worked properly. If you need coursework from an institution
evaluated, see our Transfer of Credit
If you are trying to substitute a prerequisite (MATH 221
for MATH 241, etc.), you will need to use our Web form to complete the actual registration.
In order to take MATH 241, you must either
achieve the appropriate levels on the Math Placement Test or complete
an online preparatory program. See this page
for more information.
If you think that everything is in the system correctly
but you still can't get in, complete our
I don't see all the class meeting
times in my schedule.
In classes with a lab, you register for the lab and it
will automatically register you in the corresponding lecture and/or
discussion. In classes with discussion only, you register for the
discussion and it will automatically register you for the
lecture. (All classes have a lecture component.)
The easiest way to see what lab sections go with what
lecture is to look at the registration booklet.
(like Courses Search) are much less clear.
The coupling between components is mandatory for math
That is, you cannot "cherry-pick" the lecture and lab---you must pick
the ones that go together in the registration booklet.
