If you need an SPN or prerequisite override for a course the DLS does not teach, we are not able to assist you! Don’t waste valuable time!   Please use the following links for Chemistry, Math, Physics, and Kinesiology & Health  departments for help with their courses or you can check the department website for SEBS courses. 

 If you are having trouble registering for an open section of a course, please be sure to check whether there are restrictions on that particular section. It may be by SPN only, Honors only, school specific, or major specific. Alternatively, you may not have the appropriate pre-requisite.

If you have the prerequisites for a DLS course, but they aren’t recognized by WebReg, please contact us!  For non-DLS courses, please contact your school's Academic Advising office (SEBS or SAS) or department administrative staff from the department that offers the course. 

Please note that not all courses from the various life science departments are approved electives for Biology! Please always review the list of approved electives  or DN to confirm when selecting courses!
