Pre-requisites, Enrollment Limits and Time Conflicts
Some classes have pre-requisites which will prevent you from enrolling in the class if you do not meet specific requirements. You may check to see if you have met the pre-requisites by using Shopping Cart Validation before your enrollment appointment. Click on the links below for more information on pre-requisite checking:
Undergraduate students in good academic standing may enroll in up to 18 units. Students who wish to enroll in more than 18 units must obtain approval from the chair or faculty advisor in the student’s declared major, or by an academic advisor if undeclared. Undergraduate students on academic probation may enroll in up to 13 units. Students on academic probation who wish to enroll in more than 13 units are required to have an academic advisor’s written approval.
If you are attempting to enroll in two courses that conflict in time, you will need to obtain authorization from both instructors and submit a Class Time Conflict form to the Enrollment Center for processing along with a Change of Program (Add/Drop) form. You will not be able to enroll via CI Records via myCI for this type of request.
