Express Registration

Using the "Express Registration" Screen with Synonyms

  1. If you know the synonym(s) for the section(s) you wish to add to your "Preferred Sections" list enter it(them) in the field(s) under the "Synonym" column.
  2. Using the drop-down menu under the "Term" column indicate the appropriate term.
  3. Click the "Submit" button to add the sections to your list of preferred sections.
  4. The resulting screen, "Register for Previously Selected Sections" screen, will display two lists: (1) your "Preferred Sections" list, and (2) your "Current Registrations" list.

    Please note there are a number of errors that may occur during the "Express Registration" process:

    1. If you receive a message that says "Synonym XXXX - Please select a term to register for this section" it means that no term has been entered in the "Express Registration" form. Please select a term.
    2. If you receive a message that says "Synonym XXXX could not be resolved to a single section. Enter more information for the subject, course number, section number and term and re-submit" it means the synonym you have entered is incorrect and does not actually belong to any course being offered during the specified semester. Please enter the rest of the section information leaving the synonym field blank.

    Please note that the process for adding a section to your "Preferred Sections" list does NOT check to ensure that you are actually qualified to register for the section:

    • It will NOT prevent you from adding sections to your "Preferred Sections" list that are currently full and therefore closed.
    • It does NOT check to ensure that you have completed, or are in the process of completing, the appropriate prerequisites.
    • It does NOT check to make sure that you are registered in an appropriate program.
    • It does NOT check whether or not you have previously passed the same course.
    • It does NOT check to ensure that you meet the grade requirements or any other requirements of the section.
    • It does not check for scheduling conflicts.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT ADDING A SECTION TO YOUR "PREFERRED SECTIONS" LIST DOES NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THE SECTION AND IT DOES NOT RESERVE YOUR PLACE IN THE SECTION.
