LRS Registration Details: Spring 2020
LRS small-group seminars are divided into designated sections. Only register for the section you fall under, or you will lose your seat in the course. If you have questions about which section is appropriate for you, please see below, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
MAPSS Only Sections 1-7
CIR Only Section 8
MAPH Only Section 9
All Other Grad Students Sections 11-14
All Undergraduates Sections 15-22
Who may register for LRS?
All 3rd- and 4th-year undergraduates may “bid” on the course or register themselves prior to the quarter. The course will close to new registrations the Friday before the beginning of the quarter and we will begin administering our waitlist.
All graduate students in the following schools and divisions may register during Graduate Registration Week: Humanities, Social Sciences, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Divinity School, and Harris School of Public Policy.
PhD students in the following schools may register during registration week: Booth School of Business, Law School, and the Social Service Administration.
Professional students seeking master’s degrees at Booth, the Law School, and SSA, as well as Graduate Students-at-Large through the Graham School, must fill out the LRS Waitlist Form and wait until Friday of Week 1 to register if a spot becomes available.
Unfortunately, UChicago staff and postdocs are not permitted to formally register and therefore may not participate in a discussion section. However, please contact us for information on auditing the lectures.
How do I register?
Eligible students (see above) may register themselves in an appropriate discussion section as designated in the course listing. Any student registered in an incorrect section will be dropped from the course and may re-register in the correct section if space remains. Most graduate students should register in a “General Grad” section. Students in a program-specific section such as MAPSS, CIR, or MAPH must contact their program administrator to assist them with registration as these sections are consent-only. (If your program has a designated section(s), you will not be permitted to join a General Grad section.)
If you have any questions, please write to email@example.com.
What if I didn't get a spot during registration week?
If the course is full (or if your desired discussion time is full), you may place yourself on the waitlist at the bottom of this page, which will open on March 1st for Spring quarter. (You are also welcome to continue checking the course listing prior to the beginning of the quarter to see if a spot opens up.) The course will be closed to new registrations the Friday before the quarter begins. By Friday of Week 1, we will notify those on the waitlist if a spot opens up in their desired section. In the meantime, waitlisters must attend the two plenary lectures in Week 1 on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00-3:20pm. Discussion sections begin meeting during Week 2.
