Non-Enrollment

Students who do not Receive a Course Assignment

This page is for students who were considered for enrollment as part of our regular weekly process but were not enrolled in one of the courses on their applications.

To review your student’s course requests, log in to MyCTY and select Program Application Course Changes. Next to each course you will see the reason your student was not enrolled. You can review details for each reason and your options for next steps by selecting the links below.

Reasons for Non-enrollment

Options for students who applied but were not enrolled:

Reasons for non-enrollment

There are two options to complete an application for summer programs. Online submission is the preferred method for completing an application. Please note that we are now using one application form for all CTY summer programs.

If you believe the information we have for your student is incorrect, please call CTY Registration immediately to resolve, 800-393-6095, option #3.

No class seat available

The most common reason students are not enrolled is “No class seat available.” This means the course had more requests than space available, and it was filled by other students. Read about how we assign students when requests exceed space. Review options for students who were not enrolled, below.

No bed space available

This means that the dorm appropriate for your student (boys or girls) is full. The course could be open, but there is not a place for your student to stay. Review options for students who were not enrolled, below.

Prerequisites not met

Prereq not met” means that we do not have a record that your student submitted documentation of required background course work. A common prerequisite course is Algebra 1, but check your catalog course description for exact requirements. Next steps depend on your student’s prerequisite status.

  • If your student has done the required background work, log into MyCTY to upload documentation. Acceptable documentation includes school transcripts or letters from the school on school letterhead indicating the course name and grade that was completed. Also check the open course list. If the course does not appear on the open course list, your student cannot be enrolled because the class is now full. Review options for students who were not enrolled, below.
  • If your student has not completed the required background work, you need to select other courses or withdraw. Follow instructions under options for students who were not enrolled, below.

Ineligible

Students may be ineligible based on scores or age. Review options for students who were not enrolled, below. If you request different courses, be sure that they match your student’s eligibility.

Grade requirement not met

Some courses are restricted to students who have completed certain grade levels in school. Check your catalog course descriptions, then review options for students who were not enrolled, below. If you request different courses, be sure that they match your student’s highest grade completed.

Class closed

“Class Closed” means the course is no longer being offered, usually because not enough students signed up. Review options for students who were not enrolled, below.

No gender specified

We need to know your child’s gender to ensure that we have space in the appropriate dorm. Please call CTY Registration immediately to add gender to your student’s record, 800-393-6095.

Options for students who were not enrolled:

Request different courses

Our open course list shows which courses still have space available. You may add choices from this list by clicking on Program Application Course Changes in MyCTY. Be sure that your student is eligible for each course based on scores, grade and age, and provide documentation of any prerequisites.

We’ll let you know within 10 days of the time that you submit new requests if we could enroll your student in one of those courses. Your student will be considered using our ranking system alongside all eligible students with an active application each week.

Request different courses and continue to be considered for original choices

If you would like to try enroll your student in a different course to ensure attendance, but continue to be considered for higher choices for which your student is eligible, you may.

To do this, log into MyCTY and select Program Application Course Changes. Leave any of the original choices that still interest you and for which your student is eligible at the top of your list. Add new choices below them. Delete any courses that no longer interest you. Our system will always try the higher choices first. Lower choices are considered only when students can’t be placed in higher ones.

We’ll let you know within 10 days of the time that you submit new requests if we could enroll your student in one of those courses. Your student will be considered using our ranking system alongside all eligible students with an active application each week.

If your student is successfully enrolled in one of the courses you added, you will have to take an extra step for your student to stay under consideration for a higher choice. The extra step is to formally request wait list status for the higher choice(s). Log into MyCTY, select Program Application Course Changes and check the “Waitlist” box next to any courses still of interest. Remember, enrollment in any course makes a student subject to our refund policy.

Important: We will try to move your student into a higher choice each week as long as you leave “Waitlist” checked. If at any point you no longer wish to change courses, be sure to log into MyCTY and uncheck the box. If you do not, your student risks losing the currently assigned course. Please review how our wait list process works.

Keep course requests the same

If you do not change requests or withdraw your student’s application, we will try again each week to enroll your student as originally requested. Sometimes space opens because other students drop. If so, your student will be considered using our ranking system alongside all students with an active application that week.

Keep in mind, though, drops are unpredictable and may not happen at all. We encourage you to consider courses on the open course list.

Important: We will try to enroll your student every week until you withdraw your application. If you make other plans, be sure to withdraw your application from CTY by emailing ctyreg@jhu.edu. If you not withdraw, and we eventually place your student, you may lose all or part of your deposit. Please review our refund policy.

Withdraw your application

Students not enrolled in a course may withdraw their applications at any time and receive a refund of their deposit. To withdraw, email ctyreg@jhu.edu. Refunds take 2-4 weeks.
