A time conflict may occur when you enroll in two or more classes scheduled to meet on the same day and time.
Students are expected to attend all class meetings unless otherwise explicitly indicated. Instructors are not expected to accommodate absences due to enrollment in two or more classes scheduled to meet on the same day and time. By the first week of instruction, students should not be enrolled in classes with time conflicts.
You are responsible for your enrollment decisions. Time conflicts should be avoided, and instructors may not be able to accommodate time conflicts in your class schedule.
When attempting to add classes with a time conflict, you may or may not be able to add them depending on each class’s requirements. If you are able to enroll in classes with a time conflict, you must resolve the time conflict by changing your schedule before instruction begins. Students are encouraged to use the Swap function when adding a waitlisted class that conflicts with an enrolled class.
The system will block you from adding classes with a time conflict unless the department has assigned a “time conflict override” attribute for at least one of the two classes. If the department does not set this attribute, students will be prevented from enrolling in another class with an overlapping schedule. If you cannot enroll in two classes scheduled during the same time, the department decided not to allow it. The Office of the Registrar and Cal Student Central do not review petitions from students who want to enroll in classes with time conflicts. Please contact the academic department offering the class for further information about time conflicts.
