Check for existing registration before entering LOAs

Staff who process student leave of absence (LOA) requests should ensure that any registration for the term of LOA is dropped before adding the Leave of Absence row to the Student Program/Plan page. If a Leave of Absence row is added and registration exists for the term, the system will provide a warning message when the user attempts to save, but it will not stop the user from saving the change. Classes cannot be dropped once the Leave of Absence row is added without first making a correction to the Student Program/Plan page.

Check your classes’ Auto-enroll from Waitlist indicator

Earlier this summer CCS schedulers were advised to consider unchecking the “Auto Enroll from Wait List” checkbox, on the Enrollment Control tab in CCS, as a workaround to a problem we were experiencing with wait lists. That wait list issue was fixed in late July.

Before October 19 (when information from the 2015-16 schedule rolls forward to 2016-17), class schedulers should review their fall 2015 classes and re-check the “Auto Enroll from Wait List” checkbox on classes where it had been unchecked. If the “Auto Enroll from Wait List” box is left unchecked, students on the waitlist will not be given priority over students not on the wait list for seats that become available in the class.
