Frequently Asked Questions for Undergraduates
Q: Does my introductory lab meet on the first day of class?
A: No, introductory labs (136, 141, 236, 241) do not meet on the first day of class. For the Fall and Winter Semesters, these labs begin the second week of class. For the Spring Semester, they begin the first week of class, but during the second class meeting. If you do not attend the first lab session, you will be automatically dropped from the course.
Q: I took an AP Credit examination and the AP credit doesn't appear on my student record.
A: You may need to meet with a concentration advisor to schedule an appointment. If you still have questions or you are not able to make an appointment, contact Student Services (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Q: I received a permission (override) to enroll in a class, but I just checked my schedule and the class isn't there.
A: Did you register for the class? An electronic permission gives you permission to register for the class, but it does not automatically enroll you. You must register for the class before the expiration date listed on the e-mail permission. The course will still say it is closed, but you will now be able to go through the steps to enroll.
Q: I need to get into a class and the section I want is full. I NEED this class. What do I do?
A: First, are there open sections that will fit into your schedule? If so, register. We are typically able to find a class for you, but you need to be flexible. If there are no open sections, you need to get on the waitlist for a class. Once on the waitlist you might receive an e-mail from Student Services. If so, the e-mail will tell you that you were given a permission to register for the class and that you should do so within a given amount of time. If you don't receive an e-mail from Student Services then you should attend the first day of the waitlisted class. The instructor may be able to give you permission to enroll. If you are not able to get into class after the first day then go to Student Services. The staff there will do what they can to help you find a class.
