Closed Course 

Before the final date to add or change courses.

  • The status of 'Closed' indicates that the section has reached capacity and is now full. Please ensure you check other sections of the course as it doesn't necessarily mean that all sections are full.

After the final date to add or change courses.

  • The status of 'Closed' indicates that the registration period is closed and you can no longer register in the course.

One Lecture, Two Rooms 

When there are two rooms assigned to a lecture, that means that the enrolment of the course is too high for all students to fit into one lecture hall and the lecture will be streamed from the larger room to the overflow.  In most cases it is Wenjack (OCA W101.2) to another room. The best option would be to go to the larger room first to see if there is space available.
