Course Selection/Registration

Before you Register

Select your desired course(s)

  • Plan to attend the first week of any course you hope to enroll in, even if your registration isn’t confirmed at the time.
  • Review the Seat Availability report to find out if a Booth course is already closed, or to estimate your chances of successfully enrolling in a course with only a few seats left. The Seat Availability report is updated periodically during the registration process and should only be used to rule out courses that are closed or have very few seats left. Faculty members may not authorize a seat to be added to a closed course.
  • A course you are interested in taking may have a strict prerequisite, enrollment restrictions, or require instructor permission before you can register. See the Strict Prereqs and Restrictions list for these courses.
  • Some Booth courses may not be audited or taken for Pass/Fail. Consult the No Pass/Fail, No Audit list for details.
  • Provisional grades are not given for Financial Accounting 30000. This course should not be taken in the graduating quarter.

Prerequisite Waivers and Instructor Consent

  • If you wish to register for a course with a prerequisite and you feel your background meets the requirement, then email the faculty member to request a waiver of the prerequisite and permission to register. Prereq waivers may be submitted within the registration poll or via email to the Prereq listserv at the Booth Registrar’s Office prior to the close of the registration poll.
  • Some faculty members require consent in order for a non-Booth student to register. In these cases, email the faculty member to request permission to register. Instructor permission notes may be submitted within the registration poll or via email to the Prereq listserv at the Booth Registrar’s Office prior to the close of the registration poll.
Submit Your Registration Request

Online Registration

  • Use the online poll to submit enrollment requests for the Booth course(s) of your choice. You can be enrolled in a maximum of two courses, but in order to increase your chances of getting into a course you want, you may indicate a preference for up to six courses with three alternate sections per course.
  • Prereq waivers and instructor permissions may be submitted within the registration poll or via email to the Prereq listserv prior to the close of the registration poll.
  • If you change your mind after submitting a request, you must fill out a new one. You can change your mind as often as you want; once the poll closes, the Booth Registrar’s office will disregard any previous requests you have submitted and only process your most recent submission.

After Successful Enrollment

Week 1 Attendance, First Class Assignments, and Rescheduled Sessions

  • The first day of Booth courses for Spring Quarter 2016 is Monday, March 28, 2016.
  • Plan to attend the first week of any course you hope to enroll in, even if your registration isn’t confirmed at the time.
  • Some Booth courses have assignments for the first day of class. Consult the First Class Assignments list for details.
  • Rescheduled sessions and review session information.
  • A $25 materials fee will be added to your tuition bill for each Booth course in which you are successfully enrolled. This fee does not cover any textbooks you may be required to purchase.

Access to Chalk

  • Not all Booth faculty members use Chalk. If your Booth course has a Chalk site, it may take up to 72 hours after your registration confirmation for the site to appear in your courses list. You must be enrolled in the course to view the Chalk site.
  • If you have a University restriction, you might not be able to view Chalk sites when you log in. If you don’t have a restriction and can’t view the Chalk site for a Booth course in which you are enrolled, email the Booth Registrar’s Office.

Booth Resources

  • Consult the calendar for the final exam schedule.
  • You will be assigned a Booth account for use in Booth computer labs during the quarter. You will receive account information shortly after receiving confirmation of enrollment.
  • Booth name-tent cards are available for purchase through the Booth Business Center, located on the first floor of Harper Center.
  • Non-Booth students are not able to reserve study group rooms or access the Harper or Gleacher Centers after business hours.
Tuition Refund, Adding/Dropping, Withdrawing

Dropping, Withdrawing, Pass/Fail Grading, and Incompletes

  • Check with Esther Pandian-Riske to learn about any tuition ramifications of dropping a Booth course.
  • The last day to drop a course without penalty is Friday, week 3. Beginning Monday, week 4, a dropped course is considered a withdrawal and a grade of “W” will post on your transcript.
  • If you decide to withdraw from a course between weeks 3–9, you’ll need faculty consent. The last opportunity to withdraw from a course with permission from your instructor is Friday, week 9. Choosing to not attend class rather than dropping the course will result in a failing grade of “F.”
  • To request Pass/Fail grading, check to make sure your course is not on the No Pass/Fail, No Audit list, then complete a Pass/Fail form and submit it to the Booth Registrar’s Office by Friday, week 4. After this deadline, a course cannot be changed from Pass/Fail back to a letter grade.
  • A request for an Incomplete grade must be approved by the instructor and an Incomplete form submitted to the Booth Registrar’s Office by Friday, week 10.
