Course Crash Policy

Course Crash Policy

Students who are unable to enroll in their desired EMS course during their registration pass times on GOLD must add themselves to the course wait list.  Wait lists for EMS classes are available solely through the GOLD system beginning during Pass 2 IF all offerings of a course have filled.   Once a course wait list is enabled, students will NOT be able to directly add the course to their schedules. This means that even if a space becomes available in a course that was previously full, you will be prompted to join the wait list.  Approval codes for EMS courses will not be issued prior to the first week of classes.

In addition to this, interested students must also attend the first class meeting to confirm your place on the wait list.  Waitlisted students who do not attend the first class will NOT be considered for the course.

PLEASE NOTE:  This wait list system does a prerequisite check.  A student who does not meet the prerequisites can still sign up on the wait list, but CANNOT be added to the course if a space becomes available.   

Please remember that only students who have fulfilled the prerequisites AND have followed these instructions will be considered for the course if space permits

Ling 4 and Ling 6 are courses which are limited to graduate students only and will not have a wait list. 

Students interested in enrolling in Ling 4 must attend the first course orientation meeting in order to be issued an approval code by the instructor. Approval codes for Ling 4 will not be issued prior to the first meeting.


Week 1 Course Attendance Policy

Students who are enrolled in EMS courses MUST attend the first class meeting. Students who miss both class meetings during week 1 may be dropped from the course OR will be issued a non-passing grade in the class.

**Spaces in EMS courses cannot be held for students due to extended travel issues. Please keep this in mind when finalizing your plans for quarter breaks**

After week 1, students are still expected to attend all classes and to be on time. However, each instructor may have different policies on how absences (excused/unexcused) will affect your grade in the course. Please see your course syllabus for further details on course attendance policies beyond week 1.
