I cannot register for my UN class. I am getting a class restriction error. What should I do?

If you are having difficulty enrolling in your UN class due to a “class restriction” error, then please read the directions below:

First-Year Students

If you are a first-year student and are bringing in AP, dual enrollment, or transfer credit then you may no longer have the freshman class standing that is required to enroll in the freshman UN classes (Compositions and Global Issues). You will need a class restriction waiver. Usually these waivers are put in place ahead of time by the Registrar’s office.  You can see if you already have this waiver by going to the “Check Your Registration Status” page on Banweb.  If you don’t have the waiver then you must go to the Student Services Center in the Admin building.  Tell them you are a first-year, and they should automatically give you the waiver.

New Transfer Students

If you are a new transfer student and you no longer have the freshman class standing that is required to enroll in the UN classes then you will need a class restriction waiver.  Usually these waivers are put in place ahead of time by the Registrar’s office.  You can see if you already have this waiver by going to the “Check Your Registration Status” page on Banweb.  If you don’t have the waiver then you must go to the Student Services Center in the Admin building.  Tell them you are a new transfer student, and they should automatically give you the waiver.

Second-Year Students

If you are a second-year student who is trying to take Compositions (now UN 1015) you will not automatically get a waiver.  The policy of the Registrar’s office is to allow first-year students and new transfer students to register ahead of all others seeking to enroll in the first-year General Education classes.  After the first-year students have completed registering (after Wednesday of the second week of registration) the restrictions on class will be lifted from the courses and anyone can register.  If you think you should be allowed to register ahead, please go to the Student Services Center in the Admin building and request to get added to the class you seek.

Upperclassmen

If you are a returning Michigan Tech student who chose not to take the UN classes in their usual semester then you will need to wait until the freshmen have enrolled in their classes.

Registration for spring semester:  Class restrictions on spring semester UN classes will be lifted at the end of the second week of registration. An email from the Michigan Tech Registrar’s Office will be sent out once these class restrictions have been removed and you will be able to register for these classes at that time.

Registration for fall semester:  The class restrictions for fall semester UN classes are usually not removed until the end of Orientation week in the fall, after the new freshmen have enrolled in the classes.

Registration for summer semester:  Summer semester UN classes do not have any class restrictions.
