Other General information:

Adding a Class. Add codes may be available from the course instructors after the first day of instruction. If you are on the wait-list for a class, check the specific syllabus or orientation requirements to see how instructors would add you. If the instructor decides to add you into their class you will get an email with the add code to proceed.

Wait-listed Students. To add a class you must attend the on-campus orientation/first class meeting if the class has any required. It will be determined at that time, if space is available in the class. For classes that do not have an on-campus meeting, contact the instructor for space availability.
