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: The registrar's office usually removes wait lists 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.
