Registration ‘Best’ Practices
Know your registration date, and register early. It’s worth getting up early on the day of registration to ensure you get the schedule that you want.
Speak with the CSS advisor before your registration date. This ensures that the classes you will be registering for will meet your degree requirements
CSS 161 & 162 registration tips
Registration for CSS 161 and CSS 162 requires co-enrollment in a CSSSKL section. Please be sure to register for BOTH sections at the SAME TIME.
Depending on your status, you might lack the ability to register in other situations. Please read carefully below. If you have questions, you are welcome to see the CSS Advisor in DISC-352.
Students who are admitted to CSS may experience registration restrictions through a variety of circumstances, including:
• not having the course prerequisite(s)/co-requisite(s), which can include grade minimums
In most cases, these restrictions are binding. Students who wish to request an exception should see an adviser.
• attempting to repeat a core class
Students must submit a Request to Repeat form to the STEM Undergraduate Academic Services Office.
Non-Majors and CSSE or IT Minors
CSS courses are mostly restricted to CSS majors only; if you would like to enroll in a CSS course but are not a major, please fill out an add code request form online.
Enrollment in CSS courses is dependent upon space availability. IT and CSSE minors must submit an Add Code Requiest form via the CSS website. The Add Code Request form is open for a limited period of time, from the day the Time Schedule goes live until the day before the registration period begins for a given quarter. Students will be notified regarding their request at the beginning of Period 2 Registration.
Priority for CSS courses will be given to first to CSS majors and then to CSSE or IT minors and MIS students.
