    "owing to the fact" is not a normal way to say it.

    Replace it with "due to the fact" that another student

    might take the slot.

    No because, if you haven't signed up, it is impossible to be "replaced." Change replace to preempt and it would work.

    Due to the fact that this class fills quickly, it is recommended you enroll early to ensure your spot and lessen the chance that the request is denied.

    Strictly speaking ..

    How can someone have 'replaced you' if they just got there first ?
