GENERAL REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Go to SISWEB. Click on LOGIN. This is where you will use your UCD Login ID and your Kerberos Password. Follow the prompts within SISWEB to navigate to the Registration menu. You will not have an option to select Spring Semester 2014 in your drop-down menu until your registration appointment time begins. Once your appointment time begins, you will gain access to the area of SISWEB which allows you to add and drop classes. If you are logged-in prior to your registration appointment time, you may have to refresh your browser in order to update your drop down menus in SISWEB.
Finding Open Courses:
You can view the status of a course by using the Course Tool Option. Make sure you to select the correct year and term (2014 - spring semester) To search if a single course is open, enter the year, term and course number (Law ...). To search the entire list of courses enter only the year, term and subject area (Law). There are many options to choose from once you are in the form.
Wait list units are included in the 17-unit total. So any course you are waitlisted for, will count toward the 17-unit maximum you will be permitted to enroll in. Class size is determined by the nature of the class and the seating capacity of the classroom. When courses become completely enrolled, a wait list is generated automatically by SISWEB in the order requests are received. If you attempt to register for a course which is overenrolled, you will receive a message telling you that the class is closed and is currently on a waiting list. You need to take an additional step to place yourself on the waitlist. If you don't submit this additional request, you will not be placed on the waitlist. To find out your placement on the wait list, go back to the registration menu and choose your Student Detail Schedule option. If you attempt to register for a class that meets at the same time as a course you are on the waitlist for, the system will assume you are no longer interested in the waitlisted course and enroll you for the new course you've requested. You will be dropped from waitlisted courses if you attempt to enroll for another course which meets at the same time, and you will lose your spot on that waitlist.
Dropping and Adding Courses:
You can add or drop open classes on SISWEB for the first eight calendar days of the semester. You can also place yourself on a wait list for any overenrolled classes. After SISWEB closes, you will need the instructor's approval to drop or add classes. Please pick up an ADD/DROP Card from the Registrar's Office to collect the professor's signature. After the 3rd week of classes, you will not be permitted to drop a class if it takes you below 10 units. The last day to add or drop a class is the last day of instruction. Late drops (within the last three weeks of the semester) require both the instructor's approval as well as the dean's approval.
How many units do I need to have "full-time status"?:
The Registrar's Office will not check for full-time status (ten units) until the end of the second week of classes. If you are enrolled for less than ten units of credit, or are waitlisted for most of your courses, its okay. Most students experience this situation. As long as you are enrolled for at least one unit of credit, you will be considered an enrolled student and you will be assessed tuition fees. Full-time status is determined after the third week of the semester.
TO PRESERVE YOUR PLACE IN AN OVERENROLLED COURSE, YOU MUST ATTEND THE FIRST CLASS SESSION OF THE COURSE AND SIGN THE CLASS ATTENDANCE SHEET. If you are on a wait list for the class or if you simply want to try to get into it, you also must attend the first class and sign the class attendance sheet. When openings occur in the class, students will be assigned off the class attendance sheet with wait-listed students receiving priority. You may not sign the class attendance sheet for another student. Doing so will be considered a violation of student judicial affairs conduct rule 102.02. If you believe you have extenuating circumstances that will prevent you from attending the first class in an overenrolled course, please contact the Registrar's Office, not the professor.
SISWEB does not check to see if you have completed prerequisites for a particular course; this is your responsibility. Faculty members have the right to ask students to leave a class if they have not completed the appropriate prerequisite. You should refer to the Course Description to determine course prerequisites.
Variable Unit Courses:
If there is no CRN number listed on the course schedule list, you may not enroll in the course through SISWEB. These courses will need prior approval and must be done by submitting the proper form(s) to the Law School Registrar's Office.
Students cannot enroll for first-year deferred courses. If you have deferred a first-year class, you will need to email the Registrar's Office with the course information for the course which you would like to be enrolled in. As long as you have enough units available in your schedule, and no other course/time conflicts, the Registrar's Office will enroll you for the course.
You cannot register for non-law courses on the web. Please check with Law School Registrar's Office for procedures.
