place in the class.

WebAdvisor schedule to see if a student has dropped and
the class has reopened. Two weeks before the semester begins,
you will be able to add your name to the Priority Wait List for a closed
course. If you are on a wait list for a face to face or hybrid class, be sure to attend the first class

via the web site and e-mail.

the semester begins (see the college schedule) and the final exam.

course. The good news is that you get to pick your work times and setting.

your work, complete an online quiz, or participate in web-based discussion.

think that that you don't need to make time for class just because
you're not on campus.
