SUMMER/FALL 2020 RESTRICTIONS

 

New structure and registration changes for lower level CS courses

Effective spring 2020, some lower level CS courses had new structures and set-up in OSCAR. This requires a change in the way students register for the lecture, lab, and recitation (new) sections of these courses. See the updates below and register as appropriate.

  1. CS 1301, 1315, 1331, 1332, 1371, 2050, and 2316- Lecture and recitation. Register for one lecture section and one of the associated recitation sections (ex. CS 1331 A lecture and 1331 R A01-A05 recitation).
  2. CS 2110 – Lecture and lab are linked. Register for one lecture section and one of the associated lab sections (ex. 2110 A lecture and 2110 A01-A05 lab).
  3. CS 2200 – Lecture and linked lab, plus recitation. Register for lecture section A and lab section A01. Also register for a recitation section (2200 R A01-A06). The instructor will provide details on the unscheduled lab (2200 A01) at the start of the term.
  4. CS 2261-Lecture and linked lab. Register for lecture section A and lab section A01.

Additional notes on new course structures:

1. Credit and billing will be done through the main lecture component of each course.

2. Recitations are non-billable and will be similar to co-ops and internships for financial aid purposes. They will not count against Hope/Zell hours, but they will count towards full-time status.

3. F1 students cannot use audit hours to maintain their full-time status. Review F1 enrollment requirements here .

4. While recitations are not required they are strongly encouraged and students cannot attend a recitation section unless they are properly registered for it (See GT Rules and Regulation IX - “Students may attend only those particular classes for which they are registered and paid”).

5. GR lecture sections are reserved for graduate students.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q:  What do I do if a Course is CLOSED?

A:  Once the registration cap has been reached for a course, the course is full. In order to request a seat in a closed CS course, you must follow the instructions for waitlisting: http://www.registrar.gatech.edu/registration/waitlisting.php

 

Q: Can a professor help me get into the course?

A:  Please DO NOT email a professor to seek permission to enroll in his/her course, as professors have no control over this.

 

Q: What does this error message mean?

A:  If you try to register for a course and receive an error message, please refer to the link:

http://www.registrar.gatech.edu/registration/error.php for an explanation of what the message means.

 

Q: What if the class and the waitlist are both full?

A:  The only thing you can do in this situation is wait until something opens up.

 

Q: I am not a CoC major, but I want permission to take a class. How do I do that?

A:  The College of Computing does not issue permit for restricted classes. See above for information about when major restrictions will be removed.

 

Q: I am a graduate student.  Can I take the undergraduate version of a course that is cross-listed with both undergrad and grad sections?

A:  If you are a grad student, you should take the grad section of a cross-listed course.

 

Q: When are wait lists removed from classes?

A:  Wait lists are usually removed from classes on the Thursday before Phase II registration ends.

 

Q. I understand that students appear on wait lists in the order that they attempt to register.  Is that initial order ever changed?

 A. Yes. Degree candidates may be moved up on the waitlist for classes they must take to satisfy the BSCS degree.

 

Q.  Can I register for a CoC graduate-level course if I didn't receive a permit?

A.  If you were not issued a permit for Phase I, this does NOT mean you cannot take the course.  You can continue to try to register for your courses during Phase II registration.
