Possible Registration Errors you may experience:
What is a Corequisite?
A corequisite refers to a course that is required with the registration of a corresponding accompaniment course. One instance is a lecture that requires registration in a specific lab simultaneously during registration. When you register for these courses, you will need to register for both courses (lecture and lab) at the same time, and when you want to drop one of the courses, you will be required to drop both courses (lecture and lab) at the same time. (Example is BIOL 1308 lecture/BIOL 1108 lab)
What is Time Conflict?
Time Conflict refers to the attempt to register for a course in which the scheduled class time has been previously booked with the registration of another course. In other words, you will not be able to register for two courses being offered at the same time on the same dates.
What is Duplicate Registration?
Duplicate Registration refers to the attempt to register for the same course twice within a term. (Example: You need to register in ENGL 1301 being offered from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. on Mon/Wed/Fri. But then you find that an ENGL 1301 is also being offered on Tuesday/Thursday from 10 – 11 a.m. You attempt to register in the 10 – 11 a.m. course without dropping the course offered at 8 a.m. on Mon/Wed/Fri. In such cases, you will receive a Duplicate Registration message and will not be permitted to register in the second course without dropping the first.)
What are linked courses?
Linked courses refers to courses in which two sessions of the course, or in some cases two courses, are required to be registered in the same term in order to receive earned hourly credit. Example of such a course would be an Introductory Spanish lecture that also requires a lab in registration.
