General waitlist for courses other than KN 230 and 232

(scroll down for KN 230 and/or KN 232)

For courses other than KN 230 and 232 (KN 253/254 are included in the general waitlist) the following guidelines apply:

  • Most KN courses are restricted to majors in the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition or College of Applied Health Sciences (AHS).
  • While priority is given to AHS students, we work to accommodate as many non-AHS students as possible.
  • You MUST submit a separate form for each course you wish to waitlist.
  • The department begins giving overrides to non-AHS students once Open Registration starts and will continue until classes begin.
  • If approved for an override, you will receive a confirmation via UIC email with additional instructions

KN 230 and 232 (fall) and KN 231 and 233 (spring)

Please read the following instructions carefully before submitting your request to join a waitlist for KN 230/232 or KN 231/233.

(Fall Semester) KN 230/232: Anatomy and Physiology Lecture and Lab I

Due to the high demand for anatomy and physiology courses, students outside the College of Applied Health Sciences must place themselves on a waitlist to be considered for a spot in the class. Overrides will be given to students on the waitlist corresponding to the number of available seats in the class.

All students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 and completed the pre-requisite course, BIOS 110 with a C or better or be registered in BIOS 110 (or the equivalent) for the spring or summer semester to receive permission to take the course.

  • Students planning to take the equivalent of BIOS 110 in the summer at another institution should check to ensure they are in the equivalent course by using the Transferology resource from CollegeSource.
  • Students who register for BIOS 110 over the summer and then withdraw from or drop the course will be dropped from KN 230/232, run the risk of backtracking, and are at a serious disadvantage when taking KN 230/232.
  • Students may be asked to submit proof of registration before an override can be granted. Details will be provided via email.
  • All students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 and have a grade of C or better in BIOS 110 in order to enroll in KN 230.

When you'll hear from us

The first round of overrides will be given during the third week of April, and then every other week until the fall semester starts.

We anticipate granting over 500 overrides. These have to be done individually, and the process takes time. All overrides will not be granted at one time. You will be notified by email sent to your UIC email account when your override is in place and you are eligible to register.

Once you receive the override, you must register for the course yourself via my.UIC; registration is not automatic. Please do not contact the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition regarding your status on the waitlist. You will be notified when your submission on the waitlist has been processed.

How to register

KN 230 is an online asynchronous lecture course.  KN 232 is an on-campus human cadaver laboratory.  The laboratory section requires credit or concurrent registration in the lecture section (or an equivalent course).  Most students will take both lecture and lab during the same semester, but you may also take the lab during a later semester as long as you have already completed the lecture.

The lecture is delivered online via the course Blackboard site. The laboratory is held on campus. There will be at least 15 laboratory sections spread across the week.  Please choose one that works best with your schedule.

When an override is given for KN 232 (lab), it is for the class in general. You must then register for an open section that fits your schedule. Requests for specific laboratory sections cannot be accommodated.

Clicking the link below indicates that you have read and understand the guidelines above. You will be required to select your campus and enter your UIC NetID and ACCC common password to log in.

(Spring Semester) KN 231/233: Anatomy and Physiology Lecture and Lab II

All students enrolled in KN 230/232 in the fall will automatically receive an override for KN 231/233 the following semester.  There is no need to place yourself on the waitlist.

Students outside of AHS who are NOT currently registered for KN 230/232—e.g., you took the course(s) at another school or at UIC during an earlier semester—may join the waitlist.
