Error Messages

As you submit item numbers for classes that you want to add or drop, you may see an error message appear on the top right side of the Registration page. These messages provide valuable information about the classes that you are attempting to add or drop. Error messages inform you when a class is full and a waitlist is available, or when a problem has occurred that will prevent you from registering for a specific class. Example error messages:

"Item: 1840 Course: WS 101 (0121) The current waitlist count = 0002 and capacity = 0010."

"This class is cancelled." or "Invalid item number."

"Permission is required to register for this class."

If you have questions about an error message that you receive, please call (360) 992-2183 or visit the Registration Office.  Be prepared to relay the specific error message.

Course Entry Codes

Many courses require prerequisites or an instructor's permission to register. Often course entry codes are required even though you have met a prerequisite for a class. When you do not meet the prerequisites or if you are registering for a course that requires an instructor's permission, you will not be allowed to register. You must obtain a course entry code to enroll online. A course entry code is a 5-digit number that is "attached" to the course. If you are eligible to enroll, you can receive the course entry code from the Advising Office or the instructor or division office. To use a course entry code:

  1. Enter the class item number of the course that you want to add in an item number field on the Registration page.

  2. Click the Submit Add/Drop button.
    - In the blank field next to the message, enter the 5-digit course entry code for the class.
    - A message appears indicating a course entry code is required.

  3. Click the Submit Entry Code button.

If a message is displayed stating the course entry code you received has already been used, contact the Advising Office, instructor or division office to get another code.

Changing Credits
If the course you are registered for is a variable credit class, a Change Credits button will appear directly below your schedule. A variable credit class is a class where you can earn any number of credits between 1 and the maximum credits attached to the class. When you register for a class, you are registered for the maximum number of credits allowed for the class. You can then change the number of credits for which you are registered. For example, if you want to complete only 3 credits of a 5 credit class, you can change the credits from 5 credits to 3 credits. You will only be charged for the number of credits you register for. To change the credits for a variable credit class:
  1. On the Registration page, click the Change Credits button beneath your class schedule.

    - The variable credit classes you are registered for appear in a pop up window.

  2. In the Credit field, change the number in the field to the number of credits you want. For example, change 5.0 to 3.0. You cannot register for half or partial credits, for example, 3.5 or 4.2.

  3. Click the OK button.

    -The changed credits appear on your class schedule.

Viewing Your Schedule
