This page provides information and steps regarding section deletion and section cancellation, including when it's possible to perform these actions.

When can a section be deleted?

A section can be deleted if the section is still in Planning status and the section number may be re-used.

When can a section be cancelled?

Once a section has been submitted and is no longer in Planning status, it cannot be deleted and instead must be cancelled.

  • Departments can cancel sections if there is no enrollment.
  • Cancelled section numbers cannot be re-used during that session.
  • Sections with enrollments must be cancelled by the Office of the Registrar. Please review Course Cancellation Best Practices information.

Course Section Cancellation

How to Cancel a Course Section

If a course section is in Approved planner status, the planner is Open, and there are no students enrolled, the department can change the Registration status to Cancelled.

If courses are viewable on MyUI before a section is cancelled, it's likely students have built schedules using the course section which will be cancelled.

Instructors are not able to perform this function but ADAs can. Notifying students of sections being cancelled before registration begins allows the students to search for another course prior to trying to register.
