Why Can’t I Get into a Class that is Open?

Frustration

During the next few weeks, we are going to address some frequently asked registration questions. If you have a general registration question and you think other UAlbany students would benefit from the answer, please leave it in the comments and we will address it in a post.

Quirk No. 1 – Viewing Your Schedule

The small things in life can cause much damage. Ticks, mosquitoes, and hitting the send or delete button by accident are just a few examples. While walking to lunch today, I was thinking about registration quirks. After lunch, I walked behind two students talking about bizarre registration issues they were having. Their conversation confirmed the need for this post.

Quirk No. 1 – Missing classes on your weekly schedule?
Your class may not be “missing”. The weekly calendar view option on MyUAlbany, by default, will only show you the classes you have this week. If classes begin on a Wednesday, then you will not see any classes you have on Monday or Tuesday unless you change the week. The default viewer is also set to show classes until 6pm. If you have a class that meets at 7:15pm, it will not be displayed unless you alter the end times on the viewer.

Taking an 8-week course? You will not be able to see it on your weekly schedule unless you are viewing a week in which the class is taking place. 

Taking an online course? It should be listed at the bottom of your calendar.

When in doubt, you may always view your schedule in list form.
