Enrollment Issues

Requests to switch sections and action on wait-listed students cannot be taken up by the TAs during the first week before the enrollment lists have stabilized.
Note: Students unable to make the section they are enrolled in during the first week due to conflicts and also students on the waiting list must attend some section in the first week to be allowed into the course.
