Taking Courses at Booth

Graduate and Professional Student Registration

Important Information

  • Attend the first session of any Booth course you hope to enroll in, even if your registration isn’t confirmed.
  • Review the Seat Availability report to see if a course is closed, or to estimate your chances of successfully enrolling in a course.
  • Waitlists are not created for Booth courses and seats are not added to full courses.

  • Check for any strict prerequisites or enrollment restrictions before submitting your registration request.

  • Being added to a course's Canvas site does not constitute registration in a course. Only the Booth Registrar's office can enroll you in a Booth course.

Request Enrollment (Pre-registration)

  • Use the Registration Request Form link (below) to submit your enrollment request.The link is only live when the Request Form is active.
  • To increase your chance of getting into a class, fill out the Request Enrollment form as soon as possible after it opens.
  • You can be enrolled in a maximum of three Booth courses per quarter. In the Request Enrollment Form you may indicate a preference for up to 3 courses with 1 alternate section per course.
  • Once you complete the Request Form, a copy will be automatically emailed to you as a record of your request. Completing the Request Form does not mean you are enrolled in a Booth course; it is only a record of your request.
  • If you change your mind, fill out the poll again with a new request. The Booth Registrar’s office will only process your most recent request.
  • On the day the online form closes, the Booth Registrar’s office processes non-Booth requests in timestamp order. If a seat is open in a course you are eligible for, you will be enrolled.
  • The results of your request will be emailed to you by the Booth Registrar's Office according to the schedule below.
  • View your successful enrollment(s) in my.UChicago the day after receiving the confirmation email.
  • If your request was not successful, you may submit another enrollment request using the Add or Swap link.
