Registration Tips: Understanding Priority Registration, Pre-Requisites, and Internet Courses

Keep reading for the most up-to-date tips on Fall 2011 registration!

Priority Registration
Our policy of priority registration for upper-level Human Development classes will continue this fall. That means that Human Development majors and minors (and for HUM DEV 331, 332, and 343 Psychology majors and minors, too!) will have first access to our classes during registration. You’ll notice these classes will say “Reserved” in the on-line schedule of classes. Don’t let that worry you – they are “reserved” for YOU!

Pre-Requisites and Internet Courses
We get a number of questions about pre-requisites at this time of year. If you are curious about pre-requisites for a class, click on the hyperlink for the course name in the on-line “Schedule of Classes” you can access on the UWGB website.

Note that things listed after “P:” are required to enroll (e.g., “P: HUM DEV 210” would mean HUM DEV 210 needed to be taken before you could enroll in this class).

On the other hand, things listed after “REC:” are recommended (e.g., it’s recommended that you take HUM DEV 331 before HUM DEV 332, but it’s not required). Classes might also have a pre-requisite that you have a certain major or a certain class year in order to register. Keep this in mind, especially if you look at Internet courses. Many of these are offered through Adult Degree and have as a pre-requisite a major in Interdisciplinary Studies, BAS-IST, or Nursing. You will get an error message if you try to enroll in one of those courses and are not a major in one of the above programs. These classes include Sections 183 ONLY of the following: PSYCH 102, HUM DEV 210, HUM DEV 331, HUM DEV 332, HUM DEV 343, HUM DEV 345, HUM DEV 346, and HUM DEV 424. Note that you can request special permission to enroll in these classes (from the instructor and Adult Degree), but not until some time after priority registration has ended. Additional fees may also apply because they are Internet classes, which carry an additional $60 fee and are not included in the “tuition plateau” for full-time students (i.e., have to pay separately for these classes beyond your full-time tuition).
