Understanding Registration Interface

If you have any questions regarding lecture and labs, or with registration in general, please contact the Registrar's Office at registrar@wit.edu or (617) 989-4020. 

Schedule Type Codes (RLC, RLB, OLC, OLB)

To assist with planning your schedule, several course delivery type codes (RLC, RLB, OLC, OLB) have been created.

  • Schedule Type Codes - Additional Information

    These new codes will assist students at the time of registration with determining the number of hours they will be on campus.  These codes will be visible in LeopardWeb on the Look Up Classes screen in the Attribute column all the way to the right.

    Look up classes screen, indicating attribute column.

    All courses with the following ATTRIBUTE have in-person delivery and meet on the days and times listed in LeopardWeb:  
    RLC: Rotating In-person Lecture
    RLB: Rotating In-person Lab (meets every other week in-person)
    LEC: Combination of In-person or Virtual delivery
    LAB: Combination of In-person and Virtual delivery

    All courses with the following ATTRIBUTES are all virtual learning and meet on the days and times listed in LeopardWeb.
    OLC: Online Lecture
    OLB: Online Lab (meets every week)

Understanding Lectures and Labs

A significant number of courses at Wentworth require a student to take a lecture (where the instructor presents material to students) and a lab (where students work on projects, problems, etc. in a less structured format). Depending on the course and delivery type, there are different ways to determine for which lecture and lab sections you should register.

  • One to One

    Some classes organize the lecture and lab so that in LeopardWeb, the lecture is paired with the lab that appears below it:

    In this case, the lecture section ARCH1500-01 is linked with the lab section ARCH1500-02, lecture section ARCH1500-03 is linked with lab section ARCH1500-04, and so on. In these cases, you cannot mix and match lecture and lab sections. You must register for a lecture and the lab section that appears directly beneath it in the listing.

  • Multiple Lecture/Lab Combinations

    In some cases, the course sections are offered so that there are multiple lecture/lab combinations. In this case, the lecture sections COMP1050-01A, COMP1050-02A, and COMP1050-03A are linked to the lab sections COMP1050-04A, COMP1050-05A, and COMP1050-06A. You would register one of these lectures and one of the three lab sections listed below it.  Note that the letters that appear in the section numbers (A, B, C and D) are an additional reminder on how the lectures and labs can be combined (all A's, all B's, all C's and all D's).

    While a two labs to every lecture arrangement is common, some courses will link as many as four lab sections to a given lecture section. 

    Example of up to four labs offered for an individual lecture session.

    Helpful Hints:
    Regardless of how the lecture and lab sections are listed for your courses, remember that you must register for one lecture and one lab section at the same time. If you try to register for only the lecture or only the lab, you will get an error and will not be registered for the lecture or lab for which you attempted to register.

Co- and Pre-Requisite and Restriction Information
