This is different from courses that need to be taken prior to this class (Prerequisites) or courses taken at the same time (Corequisites).

Restrictions are more concerned with whether you are an Undergraduate (UG) or Graduate (GR) student, or if you have earned enough credit to be considered a Junior or Senior student. Restrictions can also be used to limit registraiton to specific majors, programs, colleges, and/or departments.

This is also where you will find an indication if Department Approval is required, which may mean you have to be part of a program to register for this section.

Class Details Restrictions tab

Instructor/Meeting Times

Clicking on the name of the instructor will display their WSU AccessID email. 

To view all of the required meeting times, you will need to expand all of the meeting patterns by clicking on the arrow next to the instructor's name.

For this example, COM 1010, CRN 20939 is a Hybrid section, one that requires both an in-person Class, and an Online component.
