"Non-Enrollment Sections" include secondary or auto-enrollment components of a class (e.g. some labs and discussion sections could be classed this way).

Within a class, only one component can possess the class type of "Enrollment."

Definition Source

"The class type of Enrollment indicates which section is the primary section at enrollment time. The class type of Non Enrollment is used to indicate that the section choice is the student's secondary enrollment option, or that the section is used in auto-enrollment. Within a class, only one component can possess the class type of Enrollment. For example, at PSUNV Microbiology 240 has Lecture, Laboratory, and Discussion components. There are 5 lecture, 10 laboratory, and 15 discussion sections. We might select the discussion sections as the Enrollment sections, the lecture sections as the Non-Enrollment section using auto-enrollment, and the laboratory sections as Non-Enrollment sections with a student choice of lab section at enrollment time."[1]
