Link Error

A link error occurs when you attempt to register for a class that requires an accompanying lab or an accompanying section of another course (i.e. Biology or Chemistry, both of which require an accompanying lab).  The LI in this particular screen shot could be a different letter or number (A1, A2, L2, L5, etc…) depending on the department codes. All link errors essentially require an accompanying class.

screen shot

The method to get around this error is to register for both the course and the lab at the same time on the same worksheet. Adding these classes to the worksheet together, will not result in a Link Error. Adding one without the other ends with a resulting Link Error.

Major Restriction Error

 

If you attempt to register for a course that is prohibited because you are not the correct major, you will receive this error.

Maximum Hours Exceeded

Undergraduate students who need to take over 20 hours must complete an Overload Permit Card, available on the web: http://tntech.edu/records/forms.html

Graduate students who need to take over 15 hours must contact the Office of Graduate Studies and Research for approval.

Prerequisite Error

If you attempt to register for a class that requires a prerequisite class (a class required previous to taking a certain class) and you have not received credit for the required class, you will encounter a prerequisite error. If you feel as though you should qualify to take the course, you may seek assistance from the department.

In this particular case, a PREQ error and a Test Score Error occur with the same course (ART 3510).

To remedy a prerequisite error, first take the required course.

If you do not make the required grade in the preq course, it may be dropped from your schedule for the next term.

 

Repeat Grade Restriction Error

If you attempt to register for a class in which you have already taken and received a grade of an A or B, you will get this error. University policy states that a student cannot take a course in which you have already received an A or a B. If you need to retake one of these courses, you must file a “Request for Exception to University Requirements” form that can be found on the Records web page under the link Download Forms.
