||A prerequisite is a course that must be completed before

||A section is the particular class you register in. The
section details include the time, location, term and professor. Each
section has enrolment limits, so some sections might be full, while
others might be available.
Sections numbers come after the course number. For example, Eng 110, 001
refers to English 110, section number 001. Evening sections are usually
given a 900-level section number. Labs and tutorials are usually given
section numbers that start with LA and T.
||The following codes can be found under the status column:
- Blocked - see your department to
register. Students typically require a special skill or
proficiency in order to register in this course or sections.
e.g. audition, interview, portfolio, language proficiency, etc.
- Unreleased - the section is not open for
registration at this time, but may be opened depending on demand
and/or instructor availability.
- Cancelled - the section is no longer offered
- Restricted - only restricted seats are
available. These could include year, faculty, program or grade.
In some case a portion of the seats are reserved so that
students who require this course to complete their program can
register. In other cases, an entire course is restricted because
students can only take it if they are in a specific program.
- STT - the only seats remaining are
available through registration in a Standard Timetable.
- N/A - the database is not available at
this time therefore seat information is not available. This
typically occurs between the hours of 11:00 pm and 4:00 am
- Temporarily unavailable - the section is
temporarily unavailable for registration at this time.
