LSA Course Guide Search Results: UG, Summer 2012, Subject = COMM

Department policy requires students to attend the first two seminars or lectures of the course. For lecture courses with discussion sections, Department policy requires students to attend the first two lectures and one discussion section of the course. Failure to do so may result in the student being dropped from the course.

Waitlist and Permission Policies
For all classes, the Department uses the electronic waitlist system once the class fills. Students seeking to enroll in an already full class can put their names on a waitlist through the on-line registration system (Wolverine Access). A waitlist number will appear on the student’s schedule indicating their sequential spot on the electronic waitlist. However, priority on the waitlist is determined not by sequential order but by the Department policies listed below. Faculty members will apply appropriate departmental policies to determine which, if any, students are accepted into the class once it is full and waitlisted. Due to the reservation restrictions of Communication Studies courses for officially declared students, new concentrators are encouraged to waitlist for any closed Communication Studies courses.

Permissions and the 2-Class Rule
Department policy requires students to attend the first two seminars or lectures of a course. For courses with discussion/lab sections, students must attend the first two lectures and the first discussion/lab section. Faculty can administratively drop students from a course if they fail to attend according to this policy.

Permission Priorities
Faculty will use the Department’s established priorities to grant permissions. Students who are registered in one section of a class, but wish to switch sections, will NOT be given priority over any student on the official waitlist in Wolverine Access.

Permission Procedures
Permissions are approved only by faculty after the term begins. Permissions are issued within 24 hours of Department staff receiving them from the instructor. Students offered permission will receive an e-mail with registration information from Wolverine Access. Permissions will be valid for 3 days and will expire at midnight on the third day (which includes weekends). Failure to use the permission within the 3 day time frame will result in being administratively dropped from the waitlist. After receiving permission, students must add the class via Wolverine Access to become officially enrolled. Also, students will not be able to register for the course (add the course) until they are issued permission and have dropped themselves from the waitlist. In all cases, it is the student’s responsibility to insure that he or she is properly enrolled in, or dropped from, a course.

New Concentration Status
Newly declared concentrators should present their approved, signed Declaration Form to instructors in waitlisted courses to confirm official concentration status. Faculty rely on the signed Declaration Forms to validate a student’s official Communication Studies concentration status so that appropriate waitlist priority is granted.
