    • Once the system processes your request, you will be able to identify which classes you were actually enrolled in as they will be indicated by a green check. If there is a red X, you were not enrolled. You can double check this by going to your class schedule on the Student Center tab.

Courses you cannot self-enroll in:

  • Externships
  • ANY Doing Deals courses including the Capstone courses.
  • Seminars – you will be notified if you were accepted into your requested class(es) and provided instructions on how to register.
  • Clinics

If you try to register for one of the classes with a low enrollment cap, please note these two things:

  • The system is not broken if when you go to register and it says the class is already full.
  • You will have another opportunity to enroll in the class during open enrollment and Add/Drop.
