For a petition to be on the Wednesday docket, the petition must be received by the OtR by Tuesday at noon.

Advisor Tips

How to help students with registration errors:

Ask students which browser they're using: Internet Explorer and Firefox work well, but Chrome and Safari do not.

Ask students if they're selecting from the correct term from the drop down menu. This is especially important during the summer/fall registration period when both terms are open.

Ask students what error message they're seeing:

  • Linked course: If it's about a linked course, check the General Catalog to make sure the lecture, lab, and/or recitation are linked together (linked labs are listed directly beneath the required lecture/recitation). Note: spots have to be open for both/all necessary CRNs for the student to register. If a student received a spot from the waitlist, they must select web-reigster from the drop-down menu and put ALL necessary linked CRNs in the CRN boxes below. They must then click submit so that all registration is done simultaneously.
  • Other error? Make sure to read it! Typically these errors require contacting the department in which the course is offered, NOT the Office of the Registrar (time conflict, prerequisite, et. al.)
  • If there is a hold preventing entering registration, go to "View holds" in the student tab. A phone number to call should be listed.
