Students who have schedule conflicts with the labs and/or discussion sections can use the swap function to change their enrollment.

Swapping Labs with Units:

For labs that have units associated with them, you can follow the swap instructions to swap into an alternate lab.  If all the labs are full, you can set up a swap that wait-lists the lab that works with your schedule.  Student can wait-list up to 10 units; within that limit, you can set up multiple swaps to multiple labs that work with your schedule.

Examples of labs with units:  All labs listed with a number, like BIOL 20L-01, which includes all labs in ASTR, BIOC, BIOE, BIOL (except 101L), EART, PHYS; CHEM 146A, METX 119L, etc.

As an example, if you have a conflict wtih PHYS 6L-01, you can follow the swap instructions to set up a swap that wait-lists PHYS 6L-03.  If space becomes available in PHYS 6L-03, you will be removed from PHYS 6L-01 and enrolled in PHYS 6L-03. Given that PHYS 6L is a one-unit lab, you can set up a maximum of ten of these swaps to give yourself the best chance of becoming enrolled.  If you set up multiple swaps, you will become enrolled in the first lab that has capacity.

Swapping Lab or Discussion Sections:

For lab or discussions sections, aka secondary sections, which do not have units associated with them, you can follow the swap instructions to swap into the same course selecting an alternate section.  

If all the labs or discussion sections are full, you can set up a swap that wait-lists the secondary section that works with your schedule.  

Students can wait-list up to 10 units; within that limit, you can set up multiple swaps to multiple labs that work with your schedule.

Examples of courses with lab sections:  All labs listed with a number and letter, like CHEM 1N-01A, which includes all CHEM labs (except 146A), BIOL 101L, METX 135/L, etc. 

As an example, if you have a conflict wtih CHEM 108L-01A, you can follow the swap instructions to set up a swap that wait-lists CHEM 108L-01D.  If space becomes available in CHEM 108L-01D, you will be removed from CHEM 108L-01A and enrolled in CHEM 108L-01D. Given that CHEM 108L is a two-unit lab, you can set up a maximum of five of these swaps to give yourself the best chance of becoming enrolled.  If you set up multiple swaps, you will become enrolled in the first lab that has capacity.  

Student Responsibility:  You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your enrollments. Be sure to verify your classes and grade options prior to the enrollment deadlines listed in the Academic and Administrative Calendar.
