Common Registration Errors
Below is a list of the most common registration errors you may encounter. Follow the instructions below each error for assistance.
When necessary, contact the school that owns the course that cannot be added (ex: for a COMP course, contact the School of Computing and Data Science).
Repeat Count Exceeds 1 (Repeat Course)
- You are attempting to register for a course that you have already taken and earned a grade of C or higher.
If this is an attempt to register for a course for the second or third time, please contact the Registrar's Office to discuss your options.
Maximum Hours Exceeded: 20 Credit Hours
- You have exceeded the maximum 20 credits per semester and you do not meet the 2.5 overall GPA requirement.
Contact the Registrar's Office for next steps.
You have a hold on your account.

Contact the SSC at (617) 989-4020 or firstname.lastname@example.org to settle your account.
- No more seats are available in the section.
Find another section or work with your primary advisor to create another schedule.
Linked Course Required
- You are trying to add a lecture and lab that are not linked or you are missing a linked course.
Choose linked sections for a class. For example, labs COMP1050-04A, COMP1050-05A and COMP1050-06A are linked to the lecture sections COMP1050-01A, COMP1050-02A and COMP1050-03A. Add lecture and lab sections at the same time.
Prerequisite or Test Score Error
- You are missing a pre-requisite or a co-requisite course.
Common Co-requisite Errors:
