Back-Up Plans

My current major is Political Science, and I was wondering how many back-up classes should I have prepared for registration day?

You should have back-up classes for all courses. Pay special attention to the required first-year writing courses (Writing and Rhetoric and USEM) and Moreau, as those tend to fill quickly. The other Core courses that are very popular are the Philosophy course “God and the Good Life,” and sections of Foundations of Philosophy that are not in the early morning or later afternoon. Beginning and Intermediate level language courses will often fill, too, so please have back-up sections of these courses in mind.   

How do you make an alternate plan on classsearch.nd.edu?

Unfortunately, you cannot create alternate plans in PATH, so you should write down the course name and number for any back-up courses and have them at the ready when registering. Be sure you record the section number for courses with more than one section. Also check to make sure that you write down the co-requisite for any course that has one.


Engineering

What classes usually fill up quickest in the college of engineering?

For engineering students, classes like Chemistry, Calc I and II, Engineering Design, will not fill so that you can’t get into one. It’s more likely that the time you want might fill quickly. Popular mid-day time frames will probably be filled first.


Galvin and AnBryce

If we are in programs like Galvin scholars or Anbryce are we likely to need backups for classes like chem and biology ?

More than likely, you should be ok because you have been pre-registered for specific sections by being in these student groups.


Keough School of Global Affairs

If I'm thinking about double majoring in global affairs and want to take a course that is restricted to freshmen already in Keough until July 28th, should I reach out to the professor directly following the 28th to see if there are any slots remaining? Or am I allowed to reach out to my advisor before registering?

The Keough School will take the major restriction off the courses on Thursday, July 28.  Students can see the seats remaining in NOVO and should not email the professors.  Professors cannot add seats, adjust the restrictions, or keep a waiting list.  

Students interested in exploring global affairs are encouraged to plan to take these or other unrestricted elective courses in the Keough School. A student who is interested in global affairs but takes no classes in the fall can start in the spring or in their sophomore year without getting behind in the major. Consult the list of courses here.

Are there any opportunities for students not in the Keough School to take intro classes there to gauge their interest in studying global affairs or are those courses reserved for students with a declared program in the Keough School?

Students interested in exploring global affairs are encouraged to plan to take these or other unrestricted elective courses in the Keough School. A student who is interested in global affairs but takes no classes in the fall can start in the spring or in their sophomore year without getting behind in the major. Consult the list of courses here.

My major is Global Affairs. What USEMs are recommended to get a core credit out of the way that is not already going to be covered by the global affairs major?

USEMs in theology, philosophy, literature, and fine arts would be the most efficient choices.


Language Classes

My major is undecided, but if the language class I was placed in runs out of seats do I have to wait until next semester to take a language class?

You might, but you should also let your advisor know. Language classes want to accommodate as many students as possible, but sometimes there is no room for more students. But also remember to keep watching through the first week of class as students add and drop. 

In regards to registration for a foreign language, how would you recommend we plan for a backup for a specific class like an intermediate-level class which (as far as I'm aware) doesn't really have any replacements?

Have a different backup class in mind just in case you can’t get into the language this semester, but also follow the advice in the above question.

I want to begin taking Chinese classes in my first semester. The placement tests are in mid-August. Do I register for a Chinese class in July or after these tests?

You can wait until after taking the placement test. Your advisor will get your results and help you register for the appropriate class then. 

In regards to foreign language, if we have the ability to do a higher level class due to prior experience, would you recommend doing so?

It makes sense to go the first day and get a feel for the level of the class. If you think it’s too easy or too challenging, you can talk to the professor then and move up or down. 

How do we see “feedback” on our language placement exam?

If you want to talk more about your results, you can contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies for that language, since they see the detailed results. 

I placed into an intermediate language class based on my AP score and added to my PATH plan but it says that I am missing prerequisites? Will it let me register for the right level?

Yes, if you have AP credit, you’ll be able to register for the class that your credit places you into. The exception is German, which requires the online placement test even with AP credit. 


Loads and Schedules

Is 15 minutes a good amount of time to move from one class in a hall to another class in a different class (not too far away)?

Yes, that should be enough time. In instances where classes are on the opposite side of campus, it would be a good idea to let the professor know that you’re coming from the other side and may be a bit late. It doesn't hurt to bring a bike or scooter to campus if you have one!

Are there two CRNs per class, one for the main class and one for the specific sections?

No, each course section has a CRN, this is a unique identifier of the actual section you will be registered for. The other 5 digit code, i.e. WR 13100 would just identify the class itself.

What is the minimum amount of time we should allow ourselves to get from class to class?

At Least 10 minutes would be best, if you can make that work with your schedule. 

Is there a limit in credits that I can register for in my first round?

You have a maximum of 19 credits you can register for. If you desire to go above that you will need permission and you should talk with your advisor first. The absolute maximum is 21. 

Are 4 classes in one day considered to be too much because I have found that many of the classes that I am looking at are on Tuesday and Thursdays only?

Sometimes, that is the way things work out when making your schedule. The best thing that you can do is learn great time management skills to help you get through those long days. It won’t always be like this! This is just your first semester, and you will have many options for classes in the future.

What are the minimum and maximum credit requirements for first- years students? Is it possible to take over 16 credits in the first semester of freshman year?

The minimum credit load is 12. You have a maximum of 19 credits you can register for. If you desire to go above that you will need permission and you should talk with your advisor first. The absolute maximum is 21. (Registration Requirements and Terms).

How would you recommend keeping track of your weekly schedule before and during registration? I do not want to end up accidentally putting classes too close together.

Before registration, you can see a calendar view of the classes you have chosen in PATH, by clicking the calendar icon. As you are registering for classes, Novo will show a calendar in the lower left that will display the classes you have registered for. This will help to see how the week pans out. 

How do we know how many credits our plan in PATH covers?

Unfortunately, PATH does not give you a number, but you can add up the ‘hours’ that show with each course detail (near the course name at the top).

For the chemistry class do we have to register for all three sections? The lab plus the class plus the principles class?

Yes, you must register for all three, the Lecture, Laboratory and Tutorial. The system will likely want you to do these in sequence. For example, you can’t add the Lecture, add a writing class, then go back and add the laboratory.


Major Requirements

Where can we find the major requirements?

Major requirements can be found on the webpage for the department. Links to each of the Colleges and the departments within each College can be found on the Advising webpage, here.


Mathematics

As a premed, should I take Calculus A or Calculus I?

Whatever Math sequence is recommended by your major is the best choice. Students who will eventually take Calculus III, such as Engineering and Physics students, should begin with Calculus I. Students who only need two Calculus classes, such as Biology or Pre-Health students, can begin with Calculus A. (How to choose a Math course).

If I am taking an intro to calculus in the fall semester, am I then able to start Calc 1 in the spring or do I need to wait until next year to begin?

If you take Principles of Calculus Math 10150, you will take Calculus I this spring. You will then take Calculus II over the summer, and Calculus III in the fall.

How do we register for the right Calculus class if the placement tests are in August?

The placement test determines whether you should take Principles of Calculus Math 10150 or Calculus I Math 10550. Math Credit Exams are given on August 19th. They are for students who wish to “test out” of classes that they have already taken (like Calculus I for their high school Calculus AB class). These are purely optional.(ND Math Credit Exam). If you do decide to sign up to take a Math Credit Exam on August 19th, you should register for the lowest class level that you don’t yet have credit for. 

  • For example, someone who wants to test out of Calc I should register for Calc I now and then take the Calc I exam on August 19th.
  • This way, if you do not score the required 80% or higher to earn credit, you will already be registered for Calc I.
  • If you pass the exam and earn credit, your advisor will place you into the next level of Calc that day or shortly afterward.

I took pre-Calc in high school and plan to take Elements of Calculus 1 in the Fall. During Welcome Weekend should I take the test?

Do you want to test out of Elements of Calculus Math 10250? If so, then you can sign up for the exam. If you’d rather just take the class, do not sign up for the exam. (ND Math Credit Exam).

Based on the WW math placement exam results, if we were to test out, do we have the ability to change our schedule?

You will work with your advisor to change your schedule, yes.

Principles of Calculus is automatically on my plan. Do I have to take that class or could I take another math class?

It is your choice whether you want to take Principles of Calculus Math 10150 or not. The Math department recommends Principles of Calculus for you. If you want, however, you can remove it from your schedule on Registration Day when you go into NOVO to register.

There is a Calculus placement test during move-in week. How does this affect the classes we select now?

The ND Math Credit Exam on Aug. 19 is not a placement test. It will not affect your classes now. Sign up for the Math class that is suited to the credits you already have. If you did not earn any Math credit through AP or IB, sign up for Calculus I Math 10550 or Calculus A Math 10350. If you earned credit for Calculus I by AP/IB, then sign up for Calculus II Math 10560 or Calculus B Math 10360.

Can we take Calc 1 in the spring directly after Principles of Calc or do we need to wait until sophomore year?

Yes, you will take Calculus I in the spring.

Is it possible for first-year students taking chemistry, biology, and calculus to take only 5 courses (including Moreau)

Most students should take 5 academic classes, but it depends on their major and program. Moreau is not a regular academic class and is not included in that class count. (Sample First-Year Student Schedules)

Engineering students, for example, can take 4 classes or 5 classes (and also Moreau). Their schedule may look like this:

  • Math 10550
  • Chem 10171
  • EG 10117
  • Writing & Rhetoric
  • Core class (optional)
  • Plus Moreau

Biology students, for example, should take 5 classes, plus Moreau. Again, with some exceptions like for Galvin students. A Biology student’s schedule may look like this:

  • Math 10350
  • Bios 10171
  • Chem 10171
  • Writing & Rhetoric
  • Language class or Core class (such as Theology, Philosophy, Social Science, etc)
  • Plus Moreau

Mendoza College of Business

With most of the Mendoza requirements quickly filling what areas of the university core are recommended for Mendoza majors to begin doing the first semester?

If you can’t get into a business core class, you can consider another University core requirement (Philosophy, Theology, History, Literature, Science & Tech, or Catholicism & the Disciplines). You can also take an interesting elective, which is just any class that doesn’t fulfill a requirement. 
 

There is a 4000-level course titled Sport Mgmt Experience Learning that I am interested in but not enrollment requirements like junior or senior. Can I still register for it even though it’s a higher-level course? 

If there are no prerequisites and you meet the restrictions, you can register for the class. 

Regarding the email from Dean Wendelborn about Mendoza's core curriculum, can Freshmen still sign up for Foundations classes?

Yes, there are still a few hundred seats! Just know that it’s fine not to take one in fall, and that you can only take 3 credits of the Foundations courses this semester. 

What are sequence 1 classes?

Sequence 1 classes don’t exist anymore for incoming students. They’re part of the old Mendoza curriculum that has been revised for the Class of 2026 and beyond.


Minors

For people that do a minor, what year do people usually start taking classes toward a minor?

It depends. Some minors require that you declare the minor before taking a class, which happens in the spring. For others, you can start taking classes now if there are no restrictions. But there’s no rush. A minor is usually only five classes, so you can wait until Sophomore year or even junior year to make a decision.

When using PATH, I get an error for my Chem Tutorial saying that a “Major/Minor/Concentration Restriction not met”. What should I do to fix this (if there is a known solution)? I have already added the needed corequisites.

Check the restrictions on the class in PATH. If there are no restrictions, or you meet the ones that are listed, check with your advisor.


Miscellaneous

Is there a list of extracurricular activities or clubs, so we can perhaps try to coordinate this with our schedule?

Most clubs, sports, etc. know to plan around class schedules and have meetings in the evening or on weekends. You’ll have a chance to get information about a bunch of different clubs early in the week so that you can make changes to your schedule during add/drop week, if necessary. 

When signing up for classes, what does it mean when the instructor says "staff?"

It just means that the department is still figuring out who will teach the class, or just that they haven’t submitted the information to the Registrar yet. You’ll see an instructor appear before the first day of class. 

Are there any specific classes that you recommend we take as a freshman?

Not necessarily any specific classes. Most of the 10000-level classes are courses that departments think are the most accessible for first-year students. 

One of my courses says it takes place in an unspecified "departmental space"? What does this mean? 

It just means that the classroom has not been assigned yet. You’ll see a classroom appear there before the first day of class.


Moreau Course

How do I sign up for the Moreau class? 

Follow the steps outlined on the How to choose a Moreau FYE section page.

I'm not sure how to register for a Moreau class as all of the sections for my neighborhood (#4) say corequisite required for me. How do I fix that?

Did you get a "Corequisite FYS 10000 required" error message in PATH? PATH doesn't recognize courses in which you've already been registered (in this case, FYS 10000). You will receive this error message regardless of which section of FYS 10101 you add to your PATH plan. Ignore this message for FYS 10101. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

Are the Moreau sections within each neighborhood the same curriculum? if so, does that mean we are just choosing which time works best for us?

The Moreau course consists of over one hundred sections of approximately 19 students each. All sections share an identical syllabus (materials, assignments, grading, etc.) but meet at various times throughout the week. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

How do we know which Moreau class we should be in?

Since you must register for a Moreau FYE section that falls within your housing assignment’s “Moreau Neighborhood,” not all sections are available to you for registration. Follow the directions on the “how to choose a Moreau FYE section” page to identify which sections are available to you for registration. When it comes time to register, choose a section that is open and fits best with your schedule. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

How do we know at what time and what days our Moreau Neighborhood meets? So that we can plan our schedule accordingly?

Select your residence hall community on the “How to choose a Moreau FYE section” page to view your your preregistered Moreau Neighborhood (FYS 10000-XX), and Moreau sections (FYS 10101-XX)  - including meeting patterns and CRNS - available to you for registration. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

Do we add a section of the Moreau 10101 to our PATH plan?

Yes. Identity sections within your Moreau Neighborhood that fit best with your schedule. Search for these sections in Class Search and add the best fit to your plan. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

On PATH for any Moreau 10101 section, it looks like the system complains about not having the correct 10000 corequisite, regardless of which Moreau section I choose (valid or not). I’m not sure if the problem shows up in Novo. Should I worry?

Did you get a "Corequisite FYS 10000 required" error message in PATH? PATH doesn't recognize courses in which you've already been registered (in this case, FYS 10000). You will receive this error message regardless of which section of FYS 10101 you add to your PATH plan. Ignore this message for FYS 10101. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

For Moreau, if I only add FYS 10101 in my plan, it says corequisite FYS 10000 is required. But once I add FYS 10000, it says it's a closed section. Do we need to add both to our plan?

Did you get a "Corequisite FYS 10000 required" error message in PATH? PATH doesn't recognize courses in which you've already been registered (in this case, FYS 10000). You will receive this error message regardless of which section of FYS 10101 you add to your PATH plan. Ignore this message for FYS 10101. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section).

Why does the Moreau neighborhood placeholder class FYS 1000 say it is a "closed section" in my path plan?

You don’t need to worry about “available seats” in any FYS 10000 Neighborhood. PATH doesn't recognize courses in which you've already been registered (in this case, FYS 10000). When choosing a Moreau FYE section, consider only the “available seats” within FYS 10101 sections. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section)

Neighborhood #6 in corequisite is showing no spaces available even though I know that is my neighborhood. The other neighborhoods have slots.

You don’t need to worry about “available seats” in any FYS 10000 Neighborhood. PATH doesn't recognize courses in which you've already been registered (in this case, FYS 10000). When choosing a Moreau FYE section, consider only the “available seats” within FYS 10101 sections. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section)

I was told by my advisor that my neighborhood is already scheduled for anyone in Neighborhood #6. Does that mean I should not include it in my plan? 

All first-year students have been pre-registered for the appropriate FYS 10000 (Moreau Neighborhood). You do not need to register for a FYS 10000 section, only a FYS 10101 section. You will receive a “Corequisite FYS 10000 required” error message regardless of which section of FYS 10101 you add to your PATH plan. This is because PATH doesn't recognize courses in which you've already been registered (in this case, FYS 10000). You may ignore this error message. 

How do you register for a Moreau section through Path? I know we were assigned neighborhoods but how should we pick a time slot?

Select your residence hall community on the “How to choose a Moreau FYE section” page to view your preregistered Moreau Neighborhood (FYS 10000-XX), and Moreau sections (FYS 10101-XX)  - including meeting patterns and CRNS - available to you for registration. Identity sections fit best with your schedule. Search for these sections in Class Search and add the best fit to your plan. (How to choose a Moreau FYE section)


Music Classes and Lessons

I'm majoring in Music and Classics. As a first year, how do I get department approval for piano lessons and register for them?

Approval for piano and other private lessons will be taken care of once you arrive on campus. If you have questions, please contact the Music department at (574) 631-6211

Can you shift classes between the first and second semester if you think the first semester will have a very heavy course load? (ie my first semester has calculus, biology, chemistry, and psychology)

We do encourage students to make strategic decisions about their course load. However, some majors have required prerequisite courses in the first year that must be taken, or else the student will be behind the pace. Students concerned about a heavy course load and their options for navigating it should consult with their advisor.


Not Available to Register

I'm traveling during my time slot for registration. Is there any flexibility with the registration slots?

If you are traveling during your registration time, First Year Advising will not change your time ticket to fit your travel schedule. Instead you should register as soon as you can before registration closes on July 29th at 11:59 pm EST.

The only exception to this policy is if you will be completely without internet access for the duration of the registration window, meaning from the time ticket assigned to you in NOVO through July 29th. 

In these rare cases, you will submit your path plan to your first-year adviser (with backup choices in case courses are filled) as soon as possible. They will then submit your plan to be processed at the time indicated by your time ticket. 

My registration time opens at 1:30 pm on July 27 but I am busy with work until around 5:30 that day. Is it worth having a family member register for me right at 1:30 or is that unnecessary? Does it depend on the class?

While we understand that work responsibilities are important, it is your responsibility to make arrangements to be available to register at the time assigned to you. While registration will remain open until July 29th at 11:59 pm EST, it is to your advantage to register as soon as possible. Given this, you might consider having a family member register for you.


Path Plan and NOVO

Where can I see my saved schedule on NOVO. I keep my clicking save plan on classsearch.nd.edu, and it transfers me to NOVO, but I can't find my schedule on NOVO.

There is a How to register using NOVO video on the Advising website that walks you through how to access your plan. Please review it and then email your adviser if you have any additional questions.

Can we still revise our path up until our official registration time?

Yes, you can revise your PATH up until your official registration time; in fact, it is a good idea to log into PATH 15 minutes before your scheduled time to check on the availability of the classes you intend to register for. If you noticed that a course has filled up, then you can make that change prior to your time ticket.

What is the best way to handle choosing alternate classes that do not meet on the same days as first choice classes? I am concerned that if I have to schedule an alternate class that meets on different days than my first choice class I will create other conflicts in my schedule.

PATH alerts you to time conflicts in your schedule, so you will know ahead of time if there are issues. When it comes to back up or alternate classes, the best thing to do is to make a weekly schedule on a piece of paper, so that you can see where possible conflicts might emerge.

For my major, which classes should I prioritize registering for first?

Each major is different, so you should start by consulting the sample first-year schedules on the Advising website. If there are no specific requirements for your major, then you should choose at least one introductory course in your intended major. 

In PATH, can we construct more than 1 class schedule to have backup plans?

No, PATH does not have this functionality.

How do we save our class selections from PATH? There is a button to "Save Classes", but it doesn't appear to work.

The “Save Plan” button appears only after you choose a class from PATH and click “Add to Plan.” If the button is not appearing at the bottom of the screen, please check to make sure you are signed in. 

Should I place my backups on the primary path plan, or should I just mark them down in a document and be prepared to add them in if my other classes are taken up?

No, backup classes should be removed from your PATH plan. Make a list of these alternate courses on another piece of paper or spreadsheet for handy reference. Be sure to include all the course information, including the CRN number.

On PATH, one of the classes says there are 14 seats available, but 0 are unreserved. What does that mean?

“Unreserved” means that no seats in the course are being set aside for students in other majors or minor programs.

I've been doing all of my class planning in Path. Is there a way you can see your class plan in Novo prior to registering, and if so, how? Thanks!

There is a How to register using NOVO video on the Advising website that walks you through how to access your plan. Please review it and then email your adviser if you have any additional questions.

If we submit our complete PATH list at once and a few classes are already full, do we still get the ones that are available? Also if a lab is full, does that mean the class associated with it also gets rejected?

No, you will not be shut out of the other classes just because one or more other courses were full.

So we have to click “save plan” on PATH in order to get to NOVO for registration?

You can access NOVO through PATH by clicking “Save Plan,” but you can also access it through Inside.nd.edu and searching for “NOVO” in the search bar.

Can we keep pressing “save plan” to update it on NOVO, or should we avoid pressing save plan until we are completely ready with our courses?

You can save as often as you like. You do not need to wait.


Philosophy and Theology

Does God and the Good Life count for a theology or philosophy requirement?

God & the Good Life fulfills the first philosophy requirement.

Are freshmen only allowed to take theology courses starting with a 1, and therefore should we assume that all theology classes starting with a 2 are for sophomores?

First-year students can take THEO 10000 or THEO 10001, or a Theology University Seminar. THEO 10002 is the first theology requirement, but for upperclassmen. And 20000-level THEO classes are usually the second theology requirement. You must take your first THEO before the second. 


Registration Day

How do you recommend dealing with the timing of classes when making backup schedules? Should you make two entirely different schedules, or just figure out a different time available for each individual class?

It’s best to figure out alternate times/options for individual classes. This might give you the flexibility you need if something doesn't work out. Sometimes changing one class, means changing one or two others, like a domino effect.

If only one of my classes is full when I go to register, will NOVO reject my whole schedule or just that specific class?

NOVO will not allow you in that specific course. So you’ll need to prepare for that with alternative sections or classes to fill that spot. 

Where do we physically sign in when it is our registration time?

Sign in to Inside ND, and then find the NOVO icon. From there choose ‘Add/Drop’ classes. 

What will the registration process look like? Will you be able to register for all the classes on your plan at once? Or do you register for each one individually?

The schedule you have saved in PATH will appear in NOVO under the ‘Add/Drop’ classes link. You can either register one by one or choose to register for all. View this video for more details! (How to register using NOVO).

If I plan on signing up for a course that requires you to sign up for a “discussion” separately, is that discussion to be considered a separate course in terms of the 5 courses we’re recommended to sign up for?

No, the discussion is considered a corequisite, not a separate course. 

When we push "save plan" does that save to NOVO?

Yes, it does save to NOVO.

Are we able to sync our PATH plan when registering for classes without doing each course individually?

Your PATH plan syncs automatically with Novo when you choose the SAVE PLAN option.

How do we contact you or anyone on the day of registration?

We have Zoom Rooms open during registration to assist you! Please see the link to find your specific college. (How to find help during registration).

If we are scheduled for registration late on Wednesday, should we prepare more backups than usual?  Or will the slow release of classes still benefit us?

Preparing a good amount of backups will help. Releasing seats slowly is meant to give all students the opportunity to add themselves to popular courses. 

How many students are registering for classes on Monday and Tuesday?

There are over 2,000 first-year students in the incoming class. We have split the class between Tuesday and Wednesday registration. You will all have the opportunity to go back into NOVO on Thursday and Friday to make any adjustments. 

When we register on Novo on registration day, how will we indicate “backup" classes/plan? Will there be a first choice, second choice, etc indicator?

For backup options, it is best to have the CRN numbers and or course codes ready. You can look these up in Novo instead of path and add them to your schedule as needed. There is nothing to indicate what you chose as second, third, fourth choice.

Will the system send an email to confirm that registration has been successful?  Or a screen pop-up?

After your registration is complete, you will see a calendar view of the classes in Novo, as well as a tab that says ‘Schedule and Options’. In addition, you can view your schedule in Inside ND by choosing ‘Concise Student Schedule’.


Required classes

In PATH when it says a class is full does that mean people have already registered for that class or people have just added it to their plan?

When PATH says a class is full, it means that there are no seats left because other students have registered. These numbers change often though, so you should keep checking back to see if any students have dropped. 

What happens if you can't get the classes required for your major?

If you cannot get into a class that is required to stay on track for your major, you should let your advisor know. We can help you get a seat in the class if it’s necessary that you take it this semester. (You should not email the professor asking for another seat.)

Almost all business core classes are full, should we take another class to fulfill particular credit hours or should we just take it off and leave our schedule like that?

You should add another University core requirement or elective because you need to be in 5 classes plus Moreau, but also keep checking for seats to open in the business core. Students will change their schedules during the first week of class, and Mendoza is trying to add a few more seats as well. 


ROTC

Do ROTC classes count as fully academic?

ROTC course are not considered academic due to being 1-2 credits and don’t fulfill graduation requirements.


Seat Availability

Which classes have seats filling up the quickest?

Writing and Rhetoric(s), USEM(s), Theology 10000 and 10001, God and the Good Life seem to fill quickest. 

Why do some classes say that seats are already being taken?

Depends on which course you are viewing. Upperclassmen have already registered. If the course is a first-year course, then we are managing things so everyone gets a fair chance to join a section.

Is there anything I can do if there is a space in a class but its corequisite is completely filled up?

No, you will need to have both parts on your schedule. You may need to look at an alternate combination of the class if possible.
