Registration Controls

Registration controls may perform four vital functions in SRS:

- Reserving a number of seats in a course for certain groups of students.

- Limiting the number of seats available to certain groups of students.

- Informing students when a course requires registration for a co-requisite section or sections.

- Requiring students to have special permission to take a course.

The following table lists the types of registration controls in SRS:

TYPE OF CONTROL

EFFECT

Permission

Requires the student to have explicit permission from the instructor or department before registering for the course. There are variations that require only auditors, undergraduates to have permission.

Quotas: Reserve Seats

Reserves a number of seats for a certain group of students.

Co-requisite Activities

Informs the students registering for one type of activity that another activity is required.

Example: A course with lecture and recitation sections; students who register for a lecture section are told they must also take a recitation section.

Co-requisite Sections

Informs students taking one section that another specific section -- either of this course or another course -- is required.

Co-requisite Courses

Informs students taking one section that another course is required, but it does not matter which section of the other course they take.
