New Students – Full Courses and Tips for When to Check Availability
I just wanted to give a bit of insight into how first year courses are monitored by departments and how it conflicts with the time of day when many of you are selecting courses. Most of us leave work before 5:00pm; just when course selection is really getting started by students as you get home from school or work. This may sometimes means that spaces fill up overnight when students are selecting and staff members are not monitoring spaces in courses. In the morning, around 8:30am, staff will review the overnight course selection and at that point, will open more spaces if they are able to. If you find courses are full, especially CHEM 1040 and BIOL 1070 (for Environmental Management students) and BIOL 1090 and ECON 1050 (for Equine Management students), I recommend you check the next day to see if more spaces have become available. Please contact me (Melinda) if you are still unable to work out your schedule after checking back on WebAdvisor.
