Enrollment Issues

Students must attend the section they are enrolled in during the first week of the quarter (Sept. 29 - Oct. 6) to hold their place in the course. (Students unable to make the section they are enrolled in due to conflicts, and also students on the wait list or wishing to crash, must attend some section in the first week to be allowed into the course.)
Enrollment through GOLD is currently blocked so that the TAs can sort out requests to switch sections or to crash the course. Once we have a sense of how many places are left in which sections, the TAs will provide add-codes.
