Registration Problems

Sooner or later, you're going to run into an issue registering for your classes. It might mean there's a hold on your account, or maybe you need to make a manual change to your registration for independent study, an internship for credit or some other special case scenario. We're here to help connect you to the forms and information you need.

Registration Holds & Forms

Most registration problems result from an account hold and/or you need a special registration form.

Account Holds

If you have a hold on your account, you will see it in SIS and you should have received an email notification that it was being applied to your account. Refer to our holds page to see a list of holds, what they mean and what you need to do to resolve them.

Registration Forms

Many registration problems require permission via an e-form to resolve.

Registrar's Forms 

What is a prerequisite, and how does it impact my enrollment?

A prerequisite is any course that is required before the enrollment of another course. If you are trying to gain access to a course without the prerequisite based on your specific circumstance you will need to complete a class prerequisite waiver form which can be found in our registration forms.

What happens if a course closes? Can I waitlist?

You can waitlist a course through SIS. Whether you get enrolled or not is based upon the size of the class and your position on the waitlist. For example, you have a better chance to come off the waitlist if you are position 3 in a class of 150 versus position 3 in a class of 30. The waitlist is fully automated, and you will be notified via UW-Green Bay email if you move off of the waitlist to enrollment. All you need to do is add yourself and keep an eye on your “My Class Schedule” link in SIS.

Plan a Backup: Don't assume that you will get in if you're on the waitlist. Always have a backup course ready for registration.
