  6. Check for available seats

    Each row shows a different class and the location, day, time, and instructor of the class. The column titled Rem shows how many seats are available in the class. If there are no seats, check the WL Rem column to see if there are seats on the waitlist.

  8. Check your status

    On the next page, scroll to the bottom and check for errors. Under status, you should see Web Registered. If you see an error message, this means some thing went wrong and you are not signed up for the class. Follow the instructions in the error message to resolve the issue.
