I am a visiting international/exchange /non-degree seeking student requesting enrollment permission into a computer sciences course. How do I proceed?
Check the CS Current Term Enrollment Information document to find the appropriate enrollment contact. You will need to log in with your UW-Madison Net ID and password to access the link. Please note that some CS courses are cross-listed and may be taught and managed by departments other than Computer Sciences. Follow the directions given to understand which department to contact for enrollment.
I am on a course waiting list. When will I get off the waiting list?
Every effort is made to accommodate as many students as possible into our CS courses. In general, priority is given to UW-Madison Computer Sciences students to aid in progress towards degree requirements.
Wait lists are monitored continually up through the add deadline. However, being on the wait list does not guarantee a student a seat in a class. Students are strongly encouraged to look for ways to make an open section work with their schedules, before adding to the wait list for a full section. Wait listed students are notified via email if a seat becomes available. Students should check their email daily, even over breaks.
I have a question about enrollment into a CS course. Who do I contact?
Course enrollment information can be found using this link. You will need to log in with your UW-Madison Net ID and password to access the link. Additional questions can be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please remember to include your 10-digit campus ID when emailing about your enrollment issue.
I am getting an error message “Requisites not Met” when I try to enroll. Why am I getting this error message?
If you received the error message “Requisites Not Met” while trying to enroll, but you meet the prerequisites for the course, you might be trying to enroll in a restricted section. Many courses taught by Computer Sciences are restricted to degree-seeking UW-Madison students during the initial weeks of enrollment. Other sections may be restricted to students in specific programs. Please check the notes and read the error message carefully to better understand why the course may be restricted.
If you are an international student on an F-1 visa, you must also complete the CPT application through Terra Dotta and assign to Mollie Stolbov (email@example.com).
Requests are generally processed on Fridays. If your form is approved, you will receive a follow up email, as well as notification of permission to enroll in CS 403. This is an online asynchronous course. More information on requirements will be available on Canvas. Please watch your email when the term starts.
At the end of the term, the instructor will request confirmation of your completed internship from your supervisor. This is done via email and is required to pass the course.
