ADDS REQUIRING PERMITS

CLASSES NEEDING DEPARTMENT CONSENT (Dept Consent/Requisites):

When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that department consent or requisites are required for a class you are trying to register for, please email the department of the class for permission to register for it. Departments will first check that you meet the requirements for the class before placing the permit onto your records. This may include student level, pre-requisites, co-requisites, GPA, major or classification. 

CLOSED (FULL) CLASSES: 

When a class reaches its maximum enrollment capacity it is then considered “closed” to other registrants. Permission must be obtained from the instructor and department chair of a closed class to be registered over the max enrollment capacity.   If a class is waitlisted, students will need to add themselves to the waitlist and watch for email confirmation once enrolled.  We recommend that students check their CSUSB email  account daily.  If the class is not waitlisted and permission to enroll by permit is granted, register for the class through myCoyote.   

NOTE! It is a student's responsibility to add a class to their class schedule by officially registering for that class. 

BE ADVISED:  Instructors cannot “add” a class to your class schedule by adding your name to the class roster!  Official registration for a class must be initiated by the student, by following the procedures listed above.

 

ADDRESSING REGISTRATION ERROR MESSAGES

While registering for classes through myCoyote, students may receive an error message indicating the reason the class was not added to your class schedule.  

·         Class Is Full (closed):  Department permission is required for all closed classes. If the class is waitlisted, students will need to add themselves to the waitlist and watch for email confirmation once enrolled. We recommend that students check their CSUSB email account daily!  If the class is not waitlisted, contact the department of the class to request a “permit” (permission) to enroll.  If permission to enroll is granted, register for the class through myCoyote by the Census deadline, April 20th.

·         Department Consent Required:  Department permission is required.  When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that department consent is required for a class you are trying to register for, please see the department of the class for permission to register for it. Departments will first check that you meet the requirements for the class before placing the permit onto your records. This may include student level, pre-requisites, co-requisites, GPA, major or classification.   If permission to enroll is granted by permit, register for the class through myCoyote by the Census deadline, April 20th. 

·         Requisites Not Met:  When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that requisites are required for a class you are trying to register for, this could be for various reasons.  Most upper division courses require junior standing while other courses may require a pre-requisite be completed.  If you feel you have met the requisites indicated, please contact the department of the class for permission to enroll.  Departments will first check that you meet the requirements for the class before placing the permit onto your records.

·         Time Conflict:  When the registration system (myCoyote) informs you that a time conflict exists with another class a student is already enrolled in, then a request for a Simultaneous Enrollment is needed. If permission to enroll is granted by both departments, the Office of the Registrar will manually enroll the student in the class and send an email notification to your CSUSB email account once the request has been processed through Census, April 20th.  We recommend that students check their CSUSB email account daily!  Please contact the Registration Help Desk at 909-537-7671 for questions on obtaining approval for a Simultaneous Enrollment request.

·         Max Units Exceeded: In order to be considered to carry more than the maximum units allowed, a student must be eligible by having both a grade-point average for the previous term of 3.0 or better and an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or better. Additional units may be added only during the late registration period, if classes remain open, the course is not waitlisted and the Course Overload is approved. If a course is waitlisted, the approved Course Overload will be processed after the waitlist period ends, April 14, 2020, and by the Office of the Registrar once the approved overload is received.  An email notification to the student's CSUSB email account will be sent once the request has been processed through April 20th.  We recommend that students check their CSUSB email account daily!  Additional registration fees must be paid and holds must be cleared prior to submitting a request to overload for processing.  In addition, during the summer 2020 quarter, only 9 max units are allowed for the term, for both undergraduates and graduates.  Course overloads for the summer term will be processed through the Office of the Registrar once approval is obtained.  Please contact the Registration Help Desk at 909-537-7671 for questions on obtaining approval for a Course Overload request.
