Pre-enrollment for Fall 2013 Classes
Each pre-enrollment period begins at 7:00 AM on the first day and ends at 4:30 PM on the final day. For guidance in selecting an appropriate course, please consult First Steps in Math and/or your faculty advisor.
|Fall 2013 Class Standing||Pre-enrollment Period|
|Graduate and professional school students||Monday, April 1 – Wednesday, April 3|
|Seniors||Wednesday, April 3 – Friday, April 5|
|Juniors||Monday, April 8 – Wednesday, April 10|
|Sophomores||Wednesday, April 10 – Friday, April 12|
|Continuing freshmen||Wednesday, April 10 – Friday, April 12|
|Entering freshmen||Wednesday, July 10 – Friday, July 19|
- Enrollment in MATH 1110 (Calculus I) and 1120 (Calculus II) is limited to 30 students/lecture. Spaces will open up during the add/drop period as students adjust their schedules. Entering freshmen whose intended majors do not have a math requirement or whose interests are strongly aligned with the arts, languages, humanities, or social sciences are strongly encouraged not to pre-enroll in a math course. Math may be added, if needed, during the add/drop period following a conversation between student and faculty advisor.
- Enrollment in MATH 1220 (Honors Calculus II) is limited to 35 students. MATH 1220 is a challenging option for students who enjoy spending many hours doing mathematics. Those who are unable to pre-enroll in MATH 1220 should consider MATH 1120.
- Pre-enrollment in MATH 1350 is restricted to Arts & Sciences students. Enrollment is limited to 55 students. Any spaces that remain and those that open up due to drops will be made available to all students on a first-come first-served basis during the add/drop period.
- Enrollment in MATH 1710 (Statistical Theory & Application) is limited to 25 students/discussion. Students who are unable to add MATH 1710 should consider AEM 2100, ILRST/STSCI 2100, or PAM 2100. (See also First Steps in Math: Introductory Statistics.)
- Enrollment in MATH 2310 (Linear Algebra with Applications) is limited to 30 students per lecture. Students who are unable to add MATH 2310 should consider MATH 2210 or MATH 2940.
What To Do If a Course is Full
We do not keep waiting lists. If you are having difficulty adding or changing a math class, please note the following:
- Unless the course is listed in the catalog as “permission of instructor,” the instructor can not give you permission to enroll.
- If the math section you want is full but other sections are available, you may need to tweak the rest of your schedule to add an available math class, or you may need to reconsider taking an early morning, late afternoon, or evening math section if one is available.
- If you are trying to add calculus, multivariable calculus, or linear algebra (other than MATH 2310) and the entire course is full, try back a little later in the day or the following morning. We may not notice immediately that the course is full, but when we do we usually raise the caps a little. Keeping in mind that we do not monitor enrollments overnight or on the weekend, if you don't see some activity after 4-5 business hours or if this is the last day for you to pre-enroll, contact Heather Peterson for assistance.
- If you are unable to resolve a conflict between a required math course and another required course for your degree, contact Heather Peterson for assistance. Be sure to include your name, college, class standing, and any details you consider to be relevant to your situation, including what requirement or prerequisite you are trying to fulfill. Accommodations will not be made for conflicts with preferred first-year writing seminars or physical education classes.
Independent Study (MATH 4900 and 4901)
Students who wish to take MATH 4900 or 4901 must fill out an independent study form, which can be obtained at the Arts & Sciences Academic Advising Center in 55 Goldwin Smith Hall. After the form has been completed and the necessary signatures obtained, it must be returned to Academic Advising.
