Graduate Registration Information


Graduate level courses will be restricted based on the following schedule:

Major restrictions will remain in place until Friday, August 19 at noon.

Major restrictions will NOT be removed on the following courses: CS 6035, CS 6451, CS 6452, CS 6753, CS 8803 HCI

This fall, instead of using a COHORT restriction, we have set up a certain number of seats in each graduate course that are reserved for new Fall 2016 graduate students. Each course has two sets of reserved seats-one set for new students and one set for everyone else. Should the “new student” seats not fill, those seats will be re-allocated to returning students. This re-allocation will take place by Friday, August 19 at noon. See this link for some of the reserved seats error messages you might encounter:

If you are a FALL degree candidate and you are NOT able to get into a course that is REQUIRED for your graduation, please contact your academic advisor as soon as possible.

We will no longer accept overload requests. For courses that are closed, we are now using Waitlisting. If you do not know how waitlisting works, please take a moment to read the following:

Forms for various types of permits can be found here:

If you are a graduate student who wishes to take an undergraduate course, you should complete a request form and return it to the forms box in the advising waiting area of the College of Computing, first floor. The instructor of the course MUST approve. These permits will be issued during Phase II.

All permit forms (except MSCS Project forms) should be submitted to the drop box across from CCB 114. MSCS Project forms should be submitted to an MSCS advisor. Students who are continuing a previously approved project and simply need a permit should send their request to
