Class Enrollment
I do not have permission numbers to add students into any of my classes until the first week of the Semester. I cannot hold seats for students since the registration system is automatic. You need to check the Passport system often for availability. If you are on the waiting list, as long as there is any student drop from the course, the system register you based on the priority. Just a kindly reminder, being on the waiting list does not guarantee enrollment in the class.


Look forward to working with you all and thank you for choosing me as your instructor.
