The waitlist is managed according to the standard departmental practice. In the past, it was always possible for all students who wanted to take ECON 401 to enroll, even though the class was some times closed. This is because students are dropping the class during registration which opens up new seats. Graduate students cannot enroll for this course before classes start. This is because the course is primarily for the undergraduates.
There are no overrides given to students who are currently taking MATH 115 or a similar course at a different institution during the summer or who are in the process of transferring credits.
A syllabus with further information about the course, the textbook, and the dates of midterms and final exam will be posted at www-personal.umich.edu/~slauerma/
