Closed Class Forms/Policy
The Department does not keep waiting lists for closed classes, although some individual instructors may do so. If you are trying to register for a class and that class is closed, you will need to get permission from the instructor teaching the class. They will then send an email to the Ms. Thomas, the Departmental Administrative Assistant who will open you a place in the class via Banner. Give her a day or so to complete this process. Then you will register for the class just like any other class. You usually do NOT need approvel from the Department Head as long as the instructor has approved the addition of the class.
There is a great deal of schedule changes at the beginning of each semester, and an opening may arise. However, with a large major and limited seats available, students who need particular courses to graduate should make every effort to pre-register and ensure that they meet other fee deadlines and university rules to ensure that they keep their seat in a specific course. Fire marshals and other regulations/laws forbid us from letting students in courses where there are no seats in the classroom so students need to plan ahead according to their graduation schedule/plan.
