- Possible Restrictions on Courses
Year in Program Restriction This course is not available to students at your year level. Level Restriction This course is not available to students at your level of study (e.g. Graduate, Undergraduate or Special). Degree Restriction This course is not available to students in your degree. Major Restriction This course is only available to students in a particular field of study (major, minor or concentration) other than your own. Program Restriction This course is only available to students in a particular program of study other than your own. Faculty Restriction This course is not available to students in your faculty.
If a restriction is placed on a course, it may be to “include” or to “exclude” a particular group of students. For example, if a restriction is established to include 3rd year Bachelor of Engineering students, this means that only students who have attained 3rd year standing and who are registered in a Bachelor of Engineering degree will be able to successfully add this course.
Prerequisites are certain conditions that you have to meet before you are able to register in a course. It may be one course, or a group of courses, that must be successfully completed (in some cases with a specific minimum grade) before being eligible to register for a higher level course. For example, students must successfully complete LAWS 1000 before being eligible to register for LAWS 2201.
