I also think the question is not too clear.

But just read user input (make sure you use the 's' option),
and do switch on each valid course, make sure you use string
compare, and when one case fires just say

"Congrats! your selection" <the input> "was found, you are now enrolled"

The default will say something like

"no such course" <the input> "was found in our database, try again..."
