Help! I can't register...
A few common errors in Murphy include:
"You have no registration time ticket" - solution: go back to the main Registration menu and Select term. Make sure you are selecting the term you are registering for (Fall 2010) not the current term. 
"Waitlist Closed or Waitlist Unavailable" - solution: not all classes have waitlists available and those that do have a maximum capacity of 5. Make certain you follow the instructions for waitlisting in the Murphy online instructions to waitlist for a class.

Any questions please contact

I am on a waitlist, how do I know if I can enroll in the class?
When space becomes available in a closed course, the students on the waiting list will be notified by the MSW Program Manager through their UST e-mail account. Please do not contact the instructor of the section you are waitlisted in.
