I'm trying to register for a class, but I'm getting the following Registration Add Error message from ATHENA: “Prerequisite course not met"
You are receiving this message because you have not taken the prerequisites.
If you are interested in this course, enroll in the prerequisite course this semester so that you may take the course you've attempted to add in the future. Prerequisites can be found in the Bulletin.
If you feel that you should not have to take the prereq, contact the instructor of the course and ask for special permission. If permission is given, provide them with the course number, course CRN, your 81#, and a link to this form TO BE SUBMITTED BY THE INSTRUCTOR.
I'm trying to register for a class, but I'm getting the following Registration Add Error message from ATHENA:
This message indicates the course if full. If you would like to register for a course that is full, contact the instructor of the course and ask for special permission. If permission is given, provide them with the course number, course CRN, your 81#, and a link to this form TO BE SUBMITTED BY THE INSTRUCTOR.
PLEASE NOTE: Refer to the Course Opening Dates above. It is likely that Dodd instructors will not enroll students into full classes until AFTER all Dodd classes have been open to all UGA students.
If you are given permission for a capacity override, the course will still appear to be full. Enter the CRN of the course into a blank on the Add Classes Worksheet at the bottom of the Add/Drop page via ATHENA, and submit changes - see image below.
