Registrar for Spring Classes
When can I register for Spring 2023 Classes?

Spring Registration will begin on October 31st (Mandated Groups).

Registration of classes will continue to take place from Student Center in myCoyote. In addition, use the online Permission Requests for classes that are full (closed), have time conflicts (simultaneous enrollments), will exceed max enrollment units (course overloads) and/or have class requisites (prerequisites, student standing, major, etc). View the How To tutorial to learn now.

Waitlist

 

How does the waitlist work?

If a class is waitlisted, a Permission Request cannot be submitted until after the waitlist period ends for each term. For Spring 2023, the waitlist period will end on January 20th, 2023. Students should enroll themselves to the waitlist for the possibility of being enrolled from the waitlist. The waitlist process will run once nightly. NOTE: If the waitlisted course will exceed the max units allowed per semester, or will conflict with the day and time of other class meetings you are enrolled in, you will not be enrolled from the waitlist.

Don't forget to use the SWAP option if you want to replace a course with the waitlisted course. If the students on the waitlist are enrolled, an email confirmation will be sent to each student enrolled. We highly recommend that students check their student email daily.

 

Cancel my waitlist request
I'm on the waitlist but I no longer want or need the class, what do I need to do?

We ask that students remove themselves from the waitlist by dropping the class from their class schedule through myCoyote. Doing this allows other students on the waitlist the opportunity to move up in position for the waitlisted class.

 

Drop from a course after waitlist process
What if I was enrolled by the waitlist process but I no longer want or need the class?

If a student is enrolled by the waitlist process and no longer wants or needs the class, students will be required to drop the class through myCoyote by the Census date.

For Spring 2023, the census date is February, 17 2023. Drops after census will require students to petition for permission to withdraw with the college dean of their major in order to drop. Approved petitions will be processed by the Office of the Registrar for withdrawal and a grade of W will be assigned.

 

Request Unit Overload
How do I request approval for a Unit Overload?

Unit Overloads can only be requested during the Late Registration period of each term. For Spring 2023, late registration begins December 12th.

Use the online Permission Request for classes that are full (closed), have time conflicts (simultaneous enrollments), will exceed max enrollment units (course overloads), and/or have class requisites (prerequisites, student standing, major, instructor consent, etc). View the How To tutorial to learn now.

The class I want to overload is waitlisted
What if the class I want to overload is waitlisted?

If the class you are requesting to overload is waitlisted, you will need to wait to submit a unit load Permission Request until after the waitlist period ends for each term. For Spring 2023, the waitlist period will end on January, 20th 2023.
