Shopping Cart FAQ’s

If the system times out will the classes in my shopping cart be emptied?

No. If you have placed classes in your shopping cart they will remain until the system is purged after the close of the enrollment period.

If I put classes in my shopping cart, am I guaranteed a spot in those courses?

No. The shopping cart is used to help you manage your selection of courses, not reserve a space for you in a course. Just like any online retail shopping cart, you are not guaranteed the item until you complete the purchase. In this case, you are not guaranteed a seat until you complete your enrollment.

I can see a class but I can’t add it to my shopping cart?

Determine that you are not in the planner, rather than in the shopping cart, when you are viewing the Schedule of Classes.

How can I put classes in order of preference rather than ConnectCarolina just automatically signing you up for the first 5 classes on your list.

Under the Plan tab shopping cart, select the classes you want to register by clicking the box next to the class.

If you enroll from here, ConnectCarolina will try to enroll you in those classes first. You can keep other classes in your shopping cart in case you need to retry or want to switch something out.

The enrollment processor goes through the classes alphabetically and then numerically. Therefore if you select ENGL 102 and HIST 127, the system will try to enroll you in ENGL 102 first, and then HIST 127.

Likewise, if you put HIST 127 001 and HIST 127 002 in your shopping cart, the system will try to enroll you in HIST 127 001 first, and then if you don’t get in will try HIST 127 002.
