COURSES ARE FILLED ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. The status of a course will be updated to CLOSED or WAITLIST when the last available seat has been taken.
NOTE: Many departments have restricted courses to specific class years. Please check the REGISTRATION RESTRICTIONS LIST in this booklet or on the web when you plan your schedule. An R to the far right of a course in the course listings also indicates that the course has restrictions.
You can also see Registration Restrictions on WebAdvisor by clicking on the Course Title. Look for the Restrictions block on the Section Information screen.
Multi-section course may require balancing after registration to assure an even distribution of students among the sections, and to place as many students in the course as possible.
To register for Courses that require instructor’s permission, you must bring a completed and signed COURSE CHANGE FORM to the Registrar’s Office during regular business hours DURING YOUR CLASS REGISTRATION WINDOW.
There will be a schedule adjustment period after the registration period. Dates and times will be announced at a later date.
Class year is determined by the total number of units a student is currently registered for and the total number of units completed. Class years are changed when it is determined that the student will not have enough credits completed at the end of the term to complete with the rest of the class. If a student is able to make up the credits through approved summer transfer credits, a class year can be adjusted after the work is completed. Students who plan to complete their requirements in December will be members of the following May’s class and will be granted their diploma at the ceremony in May.
Students will receive notice of their class year change and the appropriate offices/department on campus will be notified.
Arabic, Italian and Hebrew are offered as regular courses. See Critical Languages Program (CLNG) for schedule information.
Swahili and Hindi are offered as self-instructional courses. Students meet three times weekly with a student tutor, and exams are administered and grades assigned by an outside examiner. Important: Please read the Student Study Guide on the Critical Languages Program website for more information
Follow the normal procedure for enrolling in the course and see Mary Beth Barth by 4 p.m. the first day of classes for course information and scheduling. Please note: Occasionally, due to the TBA nature of these classes, a student may not be able to take the course due to a schedule conflict.
