Who meets the criteria for the Reserved Seats for Fall 2021 classes?

Posted: April 7, 2021 at 4:36 pm

Reserved Seating in Fall 2021 is intended for incoming students. To meet the criteria to register for a reserved seat in a 100- or 200-level section, the student must be admitted at the Undergraduate level and have a Admit Term of 202170 – Fall 2021.

There are open seats, but I received a Reserved-Closed error during registration? What does this mean?

“Reserve-Closed” means that the course is full due to reserved seating, and you are not eligible to register for one of the reserved seats. You may search for a different section of the course or wait until the reserve seating period expires to determine if there are remaining seats available.   

When will reserved seats expire and be available for general registration?

The reserved seat period will expire on Saturday, July 24, 2021.  Any remaining seats will be released for general registration.   

Can I waitlist for a course with reserved seating?

No, waitlists are not available on courses with reserved seating.

Will incoming students be able to register for available seats once the reserve has been reached?

Yes, incoming students will be allowed to register once the reserve capacity has been reached if there are available unreserved seats.   

What happens if I do not meet the reserve eligibility requirements for the reserve seats? Can I still register?

During registration, the system will identify students who meet the requirements for the reserved seats, and those students will have priority to register for the course.  If there are available unreserved seats, you may register.  After the reserved seat period expires, any remaining seats will be made available for general registration.   

How do I know if a course I want to enroll in has reserved seats?

Posted: April 1, 2021 at 5:20 pm, Last Updated: April 3, 2021 at 2:29 pm

Any course with reserved seats will be indicated by the seat count in the Reserved Seat column in Patriot Web.  There will be two indicators with a count to display the available seats in each group (unreserved, reserved). Registration Navigation Instructions are available to guide you.  

I’m receiving a different error when registering for my courses? How can I resolve this?
