Waitlist FAQ

Registration Errors and What They Mean


Taking more than 17 hrs requires special permission.  You must complete the special permission request form in order to register for more than 17 hrs. Permission of the instructor, your adviser, and the Dean (from the Office of Academic Advising ) are required to complete the form.


Only juniors and seniors may elect to register in the Pass/Fail mode. Instructor AND adviser permission is required at all times. To change from graded to pass/fail, students should register for the course as usual then bring a signed pass/fail form to the Registrar’s Office. Changes cannot be processed on WIN. In no case may a student change from graded to pass/fail, or from pass/fail to graded after the last day to add a course.


A course can be changed to audit only on the first day of classes.  A completed special request form  with the instructor’s signature must be brought to the Office of the University Registrar on the first day of classes in order to change to audit mode.


Individuals who are not current degree seeking students must complete an audit form after registration is over for new students and take it to the Registrar’s Office (Room 110 Reynolda Hall). Auditors may not register online.


Remember you must clear all HOLDS before you can register for classes. Please see the department that placed the hold on your account.
