Taking Courses at Booth

Law School Student Registration


Law School students are not eligible to take Booth courses in Summer quarter. Check back in mid-July for Autumn quarter poll dates and links.

Select Your Course(s)

Plan to attend the first week of any course you hope to enroll in, even if your registration isn’t confirmed at the time.

Review the Seat Availability report to find out if a Booth course is already closed, or to estimate your chances of successfully enrolling in a course with only a few seats left. The Seat Availability report is updated periodically during the registration process and should only be used to rule out courses that are closed or have very few seats left. Faculty members may not authorize a seat to be added to a closed course.

A course you are interested in taking may have a strict prerequisite, enrollment restrictions, or require instructor permission before you can register. See the Strict Prereqs and Restrictions List for these courses.

Some Booth courses may not be audited or taken for Pass/Fail. Check the Booth online course description to see whether the course has either of these restrictions.

Provisional and early final grades are not given for Financial Accounting 30000. This course should not be taken in the graduating quarter.

Prerequisite Waivers & Instructor Consent

Many Booth courses have prerequisites, and some are strictly enforced. These are noted as strict in the course descriptions in the Course Search tool. We also maintain a Strict Prereqs and Restrictions List for easy reference. 

If a course you are interested in has a strict prerequisite, email the faculty member to request a waiver and permission to register. You may want to outline your relevant coursework or include a copy of your resume. Once you receive permission, forward the email to prereq@lists.chicagobooth.edu before the online registration period for non-Booth students ends.

Submit registration request

Prereq waivers and instructor permissions must be emailed to the Prereq listserv prior to the close of the registration poll.

If you change your mind after submitting a request, you must fill out a new one. You can change your mind as often as you want; once the poll closes, the Booth Registrar’s office will disregard any previous requests you have submitted and only process your most recent submission.

Requests will be processed in timestamp order and enrollment results will be emailed to you by the end of the day the poll closes. Waitlists are not created for Booth courses. You may view your successful enrollment(s) in my.UChicago the day after receiving the confirmation email.

If your first request is not successful, you may submit another enrollment request during Round 2.

Being added to a course's Canvas site does not constitute registration in a course. Only the Booth Registrar's office can enroll you in a Booth course.
