Create/Alter Schedule

Course Sections Overview

In Create/Alter Schedule, you can view courses available for bidding, mark a course as a Favorite, place/adjust your bids or drop courses from your schedule. Phase 6 is an Add/Drop round in which you can add an open course or drop a course from your schedule.

To get started, click on the "Bid/Drop/Add" link on the left.

A few things to keep in mind when bidding:

  • The total number of courses Full-Time MBA and PhD Program students can bid for and/or be enrolled in is five.
  • The total number of courses Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Program students can bid for and/or be enrolled in is four.
  • You may not bid for courses you are currently enrolled in or have completed.
  • You may not bid for courses with strict prerequisites if you have not met the strict prerequisite or received a prerequisite waiver from the faculty member.
  • If you have a prerequisite waiver from the faculty member, please forward it to prereq@lists.ChicagoBooth.edu. The Registrar's Office staff will enter the waiver to allow you to bid.
  • You may bid/be enrolled in two courses that meet at the same time. However, students are expected to resolve the conflict by the close of Phase 6 as faculty do not permit students to be enrolled in one section and attend another as this undermines the integrity of the bidding system.
  • You may place your bid with no alternates, or bid with any of the following alternates: any section taught by the same instructor, any section offered at the same time or any section of the course. The default bid selection is "no alternates."
  • Course section prices are based on the lowest successful bid.
