Registration Error Messages and How to Request Access to a Closed, Permission-Required, or Prerequisite-Required Class

The registration system checks for conditions, such as time conflicts, prerequisites, lab and lecture combinations, and program restrictions that may block you from registering for a class. In addition, corequisite courses, which are two or more classes that require concurrent enrollment during the same semester, are enforced. Lastly, the system enforces correct combinations of lab and lecture classes. Following is a list of registration errors, corequisite class combinations, and lab lecture class combinations.
