Registration - Quick Links and FAQ
Q: How many classes do I need to enroll in?
A: Twelve (12) units are required to be considered a full-time student. You need to enroll in a minimum of six (6) units to activate financial aid. Units on a waitlist do not count as enrolled units.
Q: I received the error message "Sorry, you are not eligible to enroll in courses this quarter. If you need assistance, please contact the Registrar at: firstname.lastname@example.org." What’s wrong?
A: You are using the campus WebReg system, not the Law School's LawReg system. Log into the LawReg system.
Q: LawReg won't let me add a class because of a supposed time conflict. What can I do?
A-1: LawReg is not capable of differentiating between short- and regular-session spring courses. If the time conflict is with a short-term course, you will need an authorization code to force your enrollment. The Law Registrar's Office can provide you with a code number.
- OR -
A-2: A waitlisted course conflicts with the course you are trying to add. LawReg does not allow time conflicts. Determine which class is more important to you and if necessary, drop the waitlisted course.
Q: How do I enroll in a course for Pass/Fail rather than a letter grade?
A: Select the S/U option in LawReg when you enroll in the course. Please note that students are limited to a maximum of eight (8) self-selected CR/NC units per degree. Refer to Academic Rules, Standards, and Procedures (PDF) for details.
Q: Why can't I get on a waitlist?
A: Waitlists for non-bid courses are active from the time enrollment starts. Bid-course waitlists do not activate until the Monday after the bid enrollment window closes. Waitlists are capped at 10 spots in smaller courses and at 25 spots in larger courses, unless faculty request otherwise.
Q: I am on the waitlist for a course. How will I know if I got in?
A: If a seat becomes available and you are next in line to take one of the newly opened seats, LawReg will automatically enroll you in the course. An automated notification will appear on your study list via StudentAccess. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee your entry into the class. Thus, it is important to always prepare your schedule with alternates.
Q: How do I get an enrollment authorization for a course?A: For courses with enrollment controlled by faculty (i.e. core clinics, externships), the faculty assistant will have authorization codes. For bid courses, the Law Registrar's Office will send an email with the codes.
Q: How do I register for independent study or independent research?
A: You must complete an Independent Study Form (PDF). Obtain the instructor's signature and submit the form to the Assistant Dean of Student Services. Once approved, an authorization code with enrolling instructions will be provided.
