If you can't register in a course it may be due to the following restrictions:

Year and Program Status

Undergraduate Psychology courses restrict enrolment to students in the appropriate year. For example, in order to register in 200 level Psyc. courses, you must have Year 2 standing on the Student Service Center.

Credits: Students are limited to a set number of credits each year and each term. Ensure that you may add courses before coming to see one of our advisors. If you want to increase your enrolment limit you must obtain permission to do so from your Faculty Office (e.g., Arts or Science) before you may register.

GIS Courses: Some Faculties do not permit students to register directly in Guided Independent Study courses or limit the number they may take. If the Student Service Center says you're ineligible but you're in the correct year, this restriction is likely preventing you from registering. See your Faculty Office advisor.

Graduate Courses: Only graduate students in Psychology may register directly in our graduate courses. If you wish to take one of them you must obtain the instructor's permission. Registration in some courses is restricted to students in our graduate program in Clinical Psychology.
