Tiered Enrollment

Tiered Enrollment is a process that academic departments and programs utilize to control enrollment in specific classes during priority registration. A department may opt to limit the maximum enrollment available in a course based on social class to ensure enough space for other social classes or incoming students later in the registration cycle. 

The spreadsheet below shows the tiered enrollment for the upcoming registration cycle. The numbers for each day signify the maximum allowed enrollment on that day. Please note that each day’s TOTAL maximum enrollment will be filled in for that day in a progression. For example: maximum enrollment set to 5 the first day for social class seniors, add 5 more for a TOTAL maximum enrollment of 10 the second day for social class juniors, etc., continuing through the registration process. On the spreadsheet the "n/c" indicates there is no change from the previous day.

Updates to the maximum enrollment of tiered classes during priority registration will be completed in Banner each morning around 6:00 a.m., prior to the start of each registration time ticket. Tiered enrollment totals are subject to change, and updates to the spreadsheet will be published as quickly as possible when changes are made. Only classes that departments and programs have chosen to institute tiered enrollment are listed on the spreadsheet.


Tiered enrollment is set by academic departments and programs. Students with questions about tiered enrollment should contact the department or program of the course. More information about social class is available on the Office of the University Registrar website.
