All students will benefit from discussing academic plans with their advisers before registering. Students with 59 credits or less are required to meet with their advisers before registering.


Requisites, prerequisites, and corequisites

In order to enroll in some courses, students must either complete or be concurrently enrolled in certain other courses or have certain qualifications or class standing. These requirements, established by instructors, are known as requisites.

When prerequisites have been set and are being enforced by the registration system, instructors may require that any student who has not successfully completed specified prerequisites for the course must withdraw. At the request of the instructor, the registrar may administratively drop a student from a course if the student has not met the prerequisite(s) for the course, provided that notification is received before the semester begins or within the first five class days of the semester (Campus Assembly, May 2006).

First Day of Class Policy

The Mandatory Attendance at First Class Session policy states that a student must attend the first class meeting of every course in which he\she is registered, unless a student obtains approval for your intended absence before the first meeting. Without this prior approval, a student may lose his\her place in class to another student.

Students must officially cancel classes if denied admission due to failure to attend the first class meeting.

Repeating a Course Policy

The University of Minnesota registration system enforces the one repeat rule* as defined in the Grading and Transcripts policy. Students may repeat a course one time. In addition, if space is not available in the class, a Morris student who earned a grade of C or higher or an S in a particular course may be denied enrollment in that course. The University registration system will not allow students to register for a course they have already taken twice. Attempting to register for a course for a third time will result in an error message in the registration system.

*Repeat rules do not apply if the repeated course carries the same course designator and number but the content differs each term, or if the course is designated “repetitions allowed.”

Max Credits

The maximum number of credits per semester for which a student will be allowed to enroll without approval is 20. The registrar’s approval is required for a student to enroll for more than 20 credits in a semester. If the request is denied, the student may appeal to the Scholastic Committee.
