Questions About URB Courses

  • Can I register for URB 301 as a non-major?  Initially, all seats in the fall-only URB 301 class will be reserved for currently declared Urban Studies majors only. Until this time, all non-majors should look for available seats in our non-restricted crosslist, GRG 307C.
    • Pending availability, we may be able to open some seats to non-majors on the final days of the April registration cycle. We will release these “open” seats directly to the course schedule, as they become available.
    • Any remaining open seats will be released to non-majors during the late summer registration period (July and August).
  • If I am applying for internal transfer, can I register for URB 301 now?  See above.
  • Can I take an upper-divison URB class as a non-major?  Initially, the seats in all of our upper-division course offerings will be reserved for currently declared Urban Studies majors only.
    • Any remaining upper-division seats will be released to non-majors during the add/drop period in late August (prior to/during the first week of fall classes).
    • However, all of our upper-division course offerings are also crosslisted with other departments across campus. There may be open, unrestricted seats in your desired course, if you check in with the crosslisted department.
  • Will there be an exception, if I can count this course for my own major/minor/certificate, etc? Unfortunately, to preserve seats in URB classes for our own majors, no exceptions can be made. You may still register for any of our reserved classes through their unrestricted crosslists.
