  • New Update on MCB 244 and 245 for fall 2012

    Unfortunately we have run into some unexpected glitches with the wait 
    list and seats in MCB 244 and 245 for fall 2012.  If you are currently
    on the wait list and have not been authorized you should receive an 
    email from Deb Bielser soon indicating that she is still working on 
    authorizations and that she will remove restrictions in 2 weeks.
    All seats are still being managed, so no one is in jeopardy of losing 
    your spot on the wait list.
    If you are already registered for the course and need to switch sections 
    you will be able to do so in two weeks once the restrictions have been 
    We sincerely apologize for the delay and appreciate your continued patience.
  • MCB 244 and 245 waitlist update for fall 2012

    All juniors and seniors who are currently on the waitlist should be contacted via email this week indicating you have been granted permission to register.  Sophomores in majors that specifically require these courses will also be given permission to register and contacted this week via email.

    All other students will have the opportunity to register after Saturday, April 21 when the course restrictions will be removed.  There are plenty of seats remaining and we hope to be able to accommodate any student who needs these courses during the fall semester.

    If you would like to make a section change you will be able to do so after Saturday, April 21.  Thank you for your patience regarding authorizations for these courses.
