Why can't I register for a course?
There may be a variety of reasons for being unable to register for courses. We've outlined some general questions and scenarios below:
Have you met the pre-requisites and co-requisites to the course?
Most courses have pre-requisites and/or co-requisites.
- A pre-requisite is a course that must be taken before another.
- A co-requisite is a course that may be taken at the same time or before.
Check the Class Schedule to determine any pre-requisites and/or co-requisites of a course. An example is the business capstone course (MGMT 449) which has a pre-requisite of all lower division and upper division business core.
Are you attempting to register for a concentration course?
All concentration coursework is restricted to pre-majors (Example: Pre-Business). Once you declare a concentration and your Titan Degree Audit (TDA) is officially updated through the university, you will be able to successfully enroll in your concentration coursework.
- NOTE: You must successfully complete all lower-division business courses before you can declare your concentration.
Do you have any holds on your Titan Online Student Center?
Holds restrict enrollment. You will want to click on the "Tasks" tile in your Student Homepage. Then view the "Holds" to find out more information on how to remove the hold and the appropriate department to contact. You can find Instructions on How to Check for Holds online.
Are you attempting to enroll in a Business Honors section?
If a course section is notated with "Topic: Honors" or has a section number of -40 through -49, this specific section of a course is restricted unless you are a Business Honors student. If you are not a Business Honors student, you are unable to enroll in this section of the course.
