Reserves and Restrictions

Spring 2024

NOTE:  All restrictions for sections are displayed on the Class Details window in the registration application (see Restrictions below for more information).


Some sections during a term have seats reserved for a particular group of students.  If a section has seat reserves, this will be displayed in the class search under the column Reserved Seats.


Most reserves are removed from sections approximately three weeks after the start of registration and those seats then become available for all students eligible to register in the course. 

To view reserve seat information for the term, refer to the Reserve Seat Information link above.


Courses may have restrictions limiting registration to students in a specific program.  For example, Nursing courses may be restricted to students in the Nursing program.  Restrictions on a course are not removed at any time during registration.  If you attempt to register in a course with restrictions that you do not meet, you will receive a registration error.  To see specific details about restrictions on a section while in the Registration application, click the course title.  In the Class Details window, select the Restrictions tab – any restrictions on the section will be displayed.  To see a list of courses with restrictions, refer to the Restriction Information link above.
