How do I register for a closed course?

Registering for a Closed Course

A class may show as being full for several reasons:

  • All of the equipment stations in the class have been assigned to students (ie. computer classes)
  • All of the desks and chairs in the classroom are filled.  Fire codes prevent us from adding additional desks in a classroom.
  • The instructor has reached the maximum number of students they can successfully guide through a class (ie. internet or hybrid classes).

For these reasons, we can not overload the classes.  We do attempt to add additional sections when space, instructors, and time permits.  Faculty are not allowed to give permission to register or attend a full class. 

Students frequently drop and add classes through the drop/add period.  Be sure to often check the "Search for Classes" feature on our website or WebAdvisor for seat availability.  This is live data.  If a seat become available, you have the option to register via the web or in person on either campus.  Sorry, but we do not waitlist or hold seats for students.
