My ID shows that it is being inactivated by Academics (or Admissions). What should i do?
Please visit the relevant department (Academics / Admissions whichever is mentioned on your portal).

How can i verify if a section is available for my program or not?

Section coding convention has been simplified. You’ll find only three alphabets in section code M, W or E only denoting Morning, Weekend and Evening respectively.
Sections starting with MWE are available for all programs. For others codes, if the alphabet for your program say W (MBA Executive 2yrs) is available in the section code e.g. W-1100 or MW-2309 or WE-1235 it means that the section is available for your program otherwise it is not.

What to do if the course I want is not visible?

  1. Go to your roadmap (General>Roadmap on student portal). The roadmap tells you what course you have passed, what courses are in progress, what course you are eligible to register (ETR) and what courses you are not eligible to register (NETR). Your roadmap is based on the courses specified in the catalog of your intake semester. Please view the catalog of your intake year HERE
  2. Only the courses that are in your program structure which have the status ETR (Eligible to Register) are visible to you. A course becomes ETR if you have passed its pre-req or the pre-req is currently in progress. Pre-req or its substitute should have been passed or be in progress.
  3. Please make sure that you look at both the course and its substitutes. You are given credit for doing the course or its substitute.
  4. If the course you want is a core course, go to the Program Core Courses table in your roadmap.
    • See if the course is available in this “core course section” of your roadmap. If it is available in this list but is not visible in the offering, then the offered course section has not been opened for your program. The sections that are visible to each program are as follows
      Section code ‘M’ for All Morning programs
      Section code ‘E’ for All Evening programs
      Section code ‘W’ for All Weekend programs
    • If the course is not visible, please fill the form Core Course Not in Structure
    • If the course is visible, but is showing the status NETR (Not Eligible to Register) this means that you have not passed the pre-requisite course or its substitute.
    • See if the pre-req course is in the Program Core Courses table of your roadmap. If you think that you have done the pre-req but it is not showing in the core course list, then it may be listed in the “Not in Structure” table of your roadmap. If it is in the “Not in Structure” table, then please contact the HoD. The list of HoD for each course code prefix is available here. For e.g MKT301 is of Marketing Department.
    • If the course is neither in the Program Core Courses table, nor in the “Out of Structure” table of your roadmap, then fill the form Pre-req Course not in the program structure  or meet the HoD of the relevant course.
  5. If the course you want is an elective and it is not visible in the Program Major table containing the electives, then please fill the form Offered Elective not in Major. Also, contact the HoD to have it resolved.
  6. How much should I worry about Out of Structure Courses during Summer 2022 Registrations?
    You should not worry about Out of Structure Courses if it is not hindering your Summer 2022 registrations. It may only hinder your registrations, if it is some course which is pre-req to the course you want to register from the course offerings. Otherwise, these out of structure courses can be handled later after the registrations. Out of structure courses are relevant to the issuance of the final transcript where the courses are matched with the original intake catalog program structure. The system will now keep your road map in-sync with your program structure and would reduce your worry during your last semester issues related to issuance of your final transcript.

Why the Course Foundation English COM100 or Academic English COM107 is being shown to me as ETR (Eligible to Register)?
“Foundation English COM100 and Academic English COM107 are marked with ” ** ” or ” + ” in the catalogs for Bachelors and MBA students respectively with clear guideline that it is ‘for less proficient students’. Unless the student has been advised to register in COM100 or COM107, this catalog instruction is self-explanatory. If you are not advised to take these courses, these will remain visible in your Roadmap with ETR (Eligible To Register) status and you may ignore that.”
