Tricking Registration

Posted by Joyce on April 22, 2009

If you’ve accidentally signed up for the wrong section number of a course that doesn’t require a permit, like 5000, 7000, 8000, you can’t just go into Raiderlink and drop it. Why? I think you can’t drop all your registrations once you’ve got an active one. So here’s what I do for you, and what I’d like you to do for yourselves.

Just do the old switcheroo. Let’s say you accidentally registered for section 003 of 8000 (CRN 55555) and you need section D21 (66666). Since you can’t add more of the same course (it’s variable credit, and the right way to do that is to increase the number of hours, right?), you need to first add a “dummy” course. In this case, let’s add 7000 section whatever (CRN 444444). Once it’s added, then you can drop the offending 8000 (555555). Once it’s dropped, you can add the new 8000 (666666) and drop the dummy course (444444). Voilà.
