Six Steps to Enrollment

1. Check Course Catalog
Browse our course catalog to view available courses, faculty, and schedules. The course schedule for the entire academic year is published each July. For academic year 2020-2021 all Booth courses may be accessed remotely, including those that faculty have designated as dual-modality.

2. Check Eligibility and Prerequisites

3. Check Available Seats

Courses are offered on a space-available basis after Booth students have had first priority for registration. To estimate your chances of getting in to the class of your choice, see our seat availability report. The report isn’t updated in real time, but it’s updated periodically throughout registration.

Note that enrollment in a Booth course is not guaranteed. Seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis through the non-Booth online request process. Waitlists are not created for non-Booth students, and seat limits for full courses are not increased.



4. Read the Fine Print

5. Check for a First Class Assignment

Some courses have assignments due on the first day of class. We highly recommend that you complete the assignment even if you’re not sure you’re enrolled.
See the list of First Class Assignments

6. Submit an Enrollment Request
Autumn 2020 enrollment has concluded. Winter 2021 enrollment will begin in mid-December.

  • Non-Booth enrollment is a manual process that takes place just before the start of the quarter in order to allow eligible non-Booth students to fill seats not taken by Booth students.
  • Non-Booth students and Booth alumni use an online form to request enrollment. The link to the form will be posted here.
  • The form requires your full name, @UChicago email address, and 10-digit student ID number. You will use a drop-down list to select the course(s) you are requesting.
  • Requests are collected and then manually processed in date/time stamp order.
  • If your request was not successful, you may submit another enrollment request up until the deadline. After that, no new enrollments are allowed, even with faculty permission.
  • Many Booth faculty have a mandatory first class attendance policy, so if you miss the first session you may not be allowed to enroll. Check the Booth course search tool for details.
