Procedures for Specialized Courses that are 'Reserved' or 'Full'

If a course is showing as “restricted”, the Schools for ADMS, HRM, PPAS, and ITEC will try to assist IEPs in our bridging program to get into courses marked as "reserved".  See the Contacts section for contact information for these departments.

This means that if you are trying to enrol in any 3000- or 4000-level ADMS, HRM, PPAS or ITEC courses that say "reserved" (not full), please contact the appropriate department right away (contact are on next page).  When you call, email or go in person, tell the office you are an IEP Student trying to get into a reserved course (give the course code and section).  Then, ask if they could give you permission on the system to enrol in the course – make sure you provide them with your student number too.

If the course is listed as "full", call the appropriate department, tell them you are an IEP student and ask to be put on the "wait list".  This wait list will only be used if they decide to open up another section of the class.

When the first week of courses start, show up to the first class and tell the instructor you are not yet enrolled but hoping to get into the course if spaces open up.  Show up to each class after that and do all the coursework, and then keep trying to add the course on the system several times a day (students may drop courses) or until the instructor is able to give you permission to enrol.

While we cannot guarantee you will get into a course marked as "full", by following these instructions you will have a greater chance of being enrolled in the course when/if other York students drop it.  You should also continually try to enrol online and see if space opens because students regularly drop courses.  We’ve been told one of the best times to check is from 10pm-2am.
