    2. Substitute - can be used for any priority course
  6. REG Athletic/PMO courses, Free Time
    1. REG courses - treated as a required course
    2. Free Time -

      Free time requests are intended for students who cannot be scheduled into class during certain periods of the day (e.g., work, childcare, disability, etc.). 

      A high priority free time request may prevent the scheduling process from placing you into a lower priority course if that course meets during the requested free time.  As a direct result, this may impact receiving a required course or a full schedule.
