Registrar's Notes

Fall registration

At the end of last Friday, 6,294 students were registered for fall 2010. We are now part way through the Juniors in priority registration; on Monday, juniors with 56 hours or more are eligible to register for fall classes. Priority registration continues through April 7.

The priority registration schedule can be found on .../registrar/calendars/timeticketFall.html


There are now 241 sections with a waitlist available for fall 2010. If you add the waitlist option to one of your sections, please remember to indicate how many seats should be on the waitlist. Note that there is a new ‘pink slip’ with a waitlist maximum column. This new form is found on the Registrar’s website, ... /registrar/faculty-staff/builders/index.html.
