Reasons for registration assistance
All registration requests will be reviewed to determine if they meet one of the valid reasons for registration assistance. Requests made for invalid reasons will be dismissed. The Undergraduate Office (UGO) will attempt to accommodate your registration request based on seat availability in sections (not necessarily section preference), and in some cases seat availability in alternate courses that will fulfill the same requirement.
Please review the following valid and invalid reasons for registration assistance before submitting your request. Do not submit requests until you have an open registration.

Can my professor sign me into a class?
Commerce professors and instructors cannot register you in their courses. All students will be referred to the Undergraduate Office and asked to submit a request for registration assistance if they meet at least one of the valid criteria for a request. For courses other than Commerce, consult the faculty offering the course you wish to take to learn the correct procedure to request registration.
