Limited Access

Limited Access is a registration policy that restricts students from registering for a repeated course (or its equivalent) until the Limited Access Release Date for each term. This allows students who have never before completed or voluntarily withdrawn from a course (or its equivalent) the opportunity to register for the course before students who are repeating it. Limited Access first took effect in Winter 2018. See the Registrar’s Office Limited Access FAQ page for more details.

How do I know if I will be subject to Limited Access for a particular course?

If you have previously taken a course and received a final grade, or if you have Voluntarily Withdrawn from the course, any future attempt to take that course or its equivalent is considered a repeated course and is subject to Limited Access.

May I have a Limited Access Override?

If three consecutive terms have passed since the end of the term in which you were last registered in the course, you may apply for a Limited Access Override. Faculty of Science students may request an override by filling out this Limited Access Override Request Form

Be sure to request any overrides well in advance of your initial registration time.
