Q: How do I know what classes meet a Professional Skills or Seminar requirement?
A: Every semester the Registrar's Office publishes a list of classes which meet a requirement. This list can be found on the Registration Information webpage on the Registrar's webpage. This information is also indicated on the "List" version of the Course Schedule on the website.
Q: What courses are considered out of division?
A: Courses that meet in both the Evening and Day divisions are considered to be "out of division" to the opposite division. For these courses, scheduling priority is first offered to all students within that division. Students outside the division will be blocked from enrolling until all students within the division have had a chance to enroll. Students can refer to the Online Registration Priority Schedule to find out when out of division registration is scheduled.
Q: What does it mean if a course is coded with a 'T' (ie. AD-302-T-01)?
A: Courses coded with a 'T' are Twilight courses and are open to all divisions and never considered to be out of division to any student. These courses usually begin from 3:30 pm until 5:59 pm.
Q: What do I do if I want to register for more than the maximum amount of credits allowed for my division?
A: To request to take more than the maximum allowed credits for your division, you must fill out the Over/Under Credit Request Form online on the Registrar's Forms webpage. This is submitted to the Director of Student Services for approval. You will not be able to register for the additional credits until approved. Furthermore, NECIN will not allow any student to over enroll, even if they have been previously approved. Any additional credits would be added by the Office of the Registrar through an email request after approval is attained.
Q: What do I do if I want to register for below the minimum amount of credits allowed?
A: To request to take less than the minimum required credits for your division, you must fill out the Over/Under Credit Request Form online on the Registrar's Forms webpage. This is submitted to the Director of Student Services for approval.
Q: Why do my courses say "pre-registered" on NECIN?
A: When registering online, all courses automatically go to 'pre-registered' status as all course schedules are subject to a final review by the Registrar's Office. 'Pre-registered' status can be treated as 'Current' status, unless the student is contacted by the Registrar's Office.
Q: What happens if I am on a wait list?
A: If you are wait listed for a course, you may then add an alternative course while you wait to see if you are contacted via email to get into the course you were wait listed for. If a spot in the class you are waitlisted for opens and you are first on the waitlist you will be contacted through email by the Registrar's Office.
Q: How many waitlists am I allowed to be on?
A: There are no limits to the number of waitlists a student can be on at one time.
Q: If I am on a wait list, are those credits counted towards my total enrolled?
A: No, if you are wait listed for a course, you are not enrolled in that course, which means you are not carrying those credits. You should add another course as a back up.
Q: If I am wait listed, can I register for another course just in case I never get into the class?
A: Yes, in fact it is recommended so that you are not in danger of being below credits. If you are notified that there is a spot available for you in the wait listed course, you may then drop the alternative course and add the wait listed course.
Q: If I am waitlisted, will permission from the Professor allow me to get into the class?
A: No. The Registrar's Office maintains and manages the waitlists for all courses and students are not allowed to jump the waitlist or over-enroll a course.
Q: What if I get wait listed for one section of a course and as a second choice, would like to register for another section but stay on my first choice waitlist?
A: Once a student has been wait listed for a course, NECIN will not allow him/her to register for a different section of the same course. In other words, (using the course, Evidence, as an example) a student who is on a wait list for EV-200-D-01 cannot then enroll in the other Evidence section, EV-200-D-02. Similarly, if the student has first registered for EV-200-D-01 and then wishes to be wait listed for EV-200-D-02, s/he will not be able to do so because NECIN views this as a duplicate course selection. Students will need to send an email immediately to the Registrar's office to request to either: (1.) be enrolled in the course, or (2.) placed on the wait list for which they received the error message. The Registrar's Office will process requests in order of receipt and send an email status/ confirmation to students.
Q: Can I register for a course that has a time conflict with a course I am waitlisted for?
A: NECIN will not allow a student to register for a course if the course has a time conflict with a course for which a student is already wait listed. Students will need to send an email immediately to the Registrar's office to request to either: (1.) be enrolled in the course, or (2.) placed on the wait list for which they received the error message. The Registrar's Office will process requests in order of receipt and send an email status/ confirmation to students.
Q: Are the waitlists posted in the order in which students may get into the course?
A: Yes, if a spot becomes available in a wait listed course, the Registrar's Office will email the first student on the wait list. If this student is no longer interested in the course, the Registrar's Office will contact the next person on the list and so on.
Q: Can I register for a course that has a pre-requisite I haven't met yet?
A: All students must meet course pre-requisites and co-requisites unless they are waived. To get a waiver, a student must print out the Course Waiver Form located on the Registrar's Forms webpage and have it signed by the instructor teaching the course. The Course Waiver form should then be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. The Registrar's Office will have to manually add you to the course since NECIN will not allow you to do so.
