Frequently asked questions from students in Rhetoric courses.
Here is a list of common error messages in UI-Integrate and what they mean: As always, students can check the Class Schedule to see if the department has posted when the restriction will be lifted.
- Class Restriction– Contact Course Department – The class is being held for students at a particular class standing (i.e., freshmen, sophomore, junior, or senior). Try to add another section of the class.
- Closed Section– Contact Course Department – The class is being held for students in a particular program or major. Try to add another section of the class.
- College Restriction– Contact Course Department – The class is being held for students in a particular college.
- CORQ REQ– Some classes require that you also register for a co-requisite or attached course. If you get this error, look at the error message, and it will tell you the class and CRN you need to add. Type both CRN’s and try again.
- Departmental Approval Required– You get this message when a course is restricted by the department.
- Linked Course Required– Specific lecture sections must be “linked” to a lab or discussion section. The lecture and the discussion/lab must start with the same letter (A, B, etc.).
- Field of Study Restriction– Contact Course Department – This class is being held for students in a particular major or majors.
- Course Prerequisite and/or Test Score Error– Contact Course Department – You get this message when you don’t have an attribute required of the course or section. Most often, courses are held in this fashion for freshmen, James Scholars, pre-College of Media students, Bridge Transition students, Weston or Allen Hall students, etc.
- Program Restriction– Contact Course Department – You will get this message when a course is restricted to a particular program or major.
- Time Conflict with (CRN #)– You will get this message when the time of the course you tried to add conflicts with another.
Unfortunately, we do NOT over-enroll any sections of Rhetoric. This is to protect the integrity of the learning process. Please continue to check sections for open seats during the open enrollment period. Similarly, we do NOT authorize late add requests.
First, review the Rhetoric departmental absence policy indicated in your course syllabus. Next, familiarize yourself with the Classroom Attendance policy outlined in the Student Code of Conduct: Article 5, Part 1.
Academic Integrity cases are guided by the Student Code of conduct. First, familiarize yourself with the relevant sections of the student code: Article 1, Part 4. Then, contact your instructor. If the case has moved beyond that point, you can contact the Associate Director of Rhetoric about your case.
