    • Most restrictions are currently set by program but can be set down to program of study.
    • If this is a change to an existing restriction, please indicate such in the “restriction criteria”.  This is also the field you should use to indicate the particular learning center

Announcements: 

  • Students may make registration changes through the first five days of the semester via MyUI. This option ends at 11:59 p.m. before the sixth business day of the session (Sunday, August 27 at 11:59 p.m. for the Fall 2017 semester). Waitlists will also continue to be active during this time.
  • Prerequisite checking - Please be sure students have the appropriate prerequisite special permissions assigned (Permanent, Conditional-Proof Required, or Met-Proof Provided). Notification of potential prerequisite drops will be sent to students ten days prior to the semester for those with Conditional-Proof Required Special Permission. Students who fail to provide proof will be dropped from the course on Wednesday, August 16th.
  • Effective Fall 2017, Special Permission Numbers will continue to work through the first five days of the semester via MyUI.
  • If waitlist is in effect, instructors should not sign slips to add students to a course. To add a student to the waitlist, the instructor would contact the academic department administrator. If a course is off-cycle, the waitlist ends at 11:59 pm the day before the class starts. At this point approved users will be able to see the waitlist but it will no longer be in use, instructors would sign an add slip to add the student to the course.
