Common Error Messages 

The following is a list of common error messages you may encounter when you register for courses

PREQ and TEST SCORE ERROR
This error indicates that you do not have the required prerequisite to register for a specific course
  • Example: ENC1102 is the prerequisite for ENC1101
  • Example: Before you can register for a math class you will need to take the ALEKS Math Placement Exam (Test Score Error)
  • Example: Before you can register for MAC2233 you would be required to take the math placement exam and score at least a 40% OR have taken and received the appropriate passing grade in MAC1105 (which is the prerequisite for MAC2233).
Please see the course catalog or the Department Course Schedule for specific prerequisite requirements.

Co-requisite Error - CORQ REQ
This error indicates that you are trying to register for a course that requires you to register for a second course at the same time.   
  • Example: General Chemistry 1 (CHM2045+L) requires a co‐requisite of College Algebra (MAC1105 ‐ or a higher math)
  • Solution: You will need to register for both CHM2045+L and MAC1105 at the same time.
Remember:  CHM2045 has a Lab, SO…you will need three CRNs: 
  CRN for – CHM2045 (Lecture)
  CRN for – CHM2045L (Lab)
  CRN for – MAC1105 (Lecture)

Department Permission Required (IN or DP)
This error indicates that you may be trying to register for a course that is being held for Learning Community students only. This error means that you probably tried to  register for a course that had an IN or DP next to it. (see image below)

IN/DP

Solution: You need to go back to the departmental course schedule and select a different section of the course you are trying to register for.

Link Error: D1 (L2, D2, C1)
This error indicates that you are missing a LAB or a DISCUSSION that is a co‐requisite for the course you are trying to register for.
  • Example: BSC1005 + L (L = Lab)
  • Example: ANT2000 + D (D = Discussion)
  • Solution: Go back to the departmental course schedule and find the corresponding LAB or DISCUSSION section by clicking on the CRN of the lecture course. It will state:
  “To register for this section, please also register for one of the following sections: 12345, 67891, 98765”
NOTE : Make sure you submit both the CRN for the Lecture and CRN for the Lab/Discussion at the same time when you register.

Time Conflict
This error indicates that you are trying to register for a course that conflicts with a different course you are trying to register for or have already registered for.
  • Example: CHM2045+L has a required MONDAY exam time. Please take note of this time when registering for additional courses.
  • Solution: You will need to go back to the departmental course schedule and find a different time for  the course you are trying to register for.
