Spring 2021: ICS Course Restrictions

This timeline for ICS course restrictions updates is being provided to help students with planning during the open enrollment period.

It is highly recommended that students check this page periodically. The timeline will be followed closely for the most part, but course restrictions are subject to change on short notice, such as in the case of highly impacted courses where restrictions may be extended or adjusted at a time other than initially planned.

ICS Student Affairs reserves the right to adjust restrictions and the timeline at any time.
