Enrolling in Lecture/Lab Combined Sections

A combined section is a lecture and lab or activity that must be taken concurrently. Enrolling in a lecture section will automatically sign you up for a predetermined lab or activity section. Combined sections will be noted in the course details and will also appear in search results as alternating Lecture and Lab options under a single course header.

To enroll in a combined section, enroll in the lecture section using the same procedure as for enrolling in an individual class.

Note: If students select a lab rather than the lecture section while enrolling, they will see an extra prompt asking them to verify the lecture section.
