Frequently Asked Questions for Students Who Are Not Enrolled

Students who are not enrolled include Wait Listed Students...

Answer: 
Students who are “NOT ENROLLED”  in my courses include:

  1. Students who are ON THE WAITING LIST. (Once the semester begins wait listed students need an add number to become enrolled.)
  2. Students who JUST WANT TO ADD a new class.
  3. Students who were DROPPED by Admissions and Records.

How can I enroll in your course?

Answer:

  1. Complete the D2L Free Sample Class* (see below)
  2. Attend the specific Course Orientation** (see below)
  3. If there is space available, add numbers will be given in a prescribed ORDER*** (see below) at that course’s orientation:

    • FIRST to Wait Listed students in attendance,
    • SECOND to students with the D2L Certificate of Completion.
  4. No exceptions.
  5. No guarantees.

*(1) Why the D2L Free Sample Class?
You will not be able to open our course materials without submitting the D2L Free Sample Class Certificate of Completion to our class Dropbox. By the time you are enrolled in the class and have access to D2L, you will be behind in your course work. (If you took the D2L Free Sample Class last semester, you are welcome to use it.)

**(2) Why do I have to Attend the Orientation Meeting?  The orientation is the only time I will be distributing Add Numbers. Attending the orientation meeting will give you a better understanding of how my online environment is organized. By the time you are enrolled in the class, and have access to D2L, you will be behind in your course work.

*** Why Won’t You Just Email Me An Add Number Now? I try to make this is a fair process. Add Numbers will not be available to students until the Orientation,  (see times listed by course on the  Orientation page).

If the class I want to take is full, can I still add it?

Answer:
Check to see if there are openings under the cross-referenced heading. Many of the classes I teach are cross-referenced.

For example ECE-314 and SOC-312 are the same course, GERON-300 and SOC-335 are the same course, SOC-310 and FCS-320 are the same course.

If all sections are full then you will have to attend the specific course orientation for the course you want to add.

Add numbers will be given at the end of that orientation meeting.

Please read the tab called “How can I enroll in your course?”

Must Read: Important Notice About Add Numbers

Answer:

  1. Add numbers must be used immediately, they will expire.
  2. Add numbers are specific to a single Course Code. If you receive an error message, double check that you are trying to add the correct course for your add number.
  3. Payment must be made right away, or Admissions and Records will drop you from the class.

“You need instructor permission to add,” message.

Answer:
The enrollment message “You need instructor permission to add,” means the waiting list is full.

Continue trying to get onto the waiting list… A student may drop the class, allowing another student to move from the wait list into enrolled status AND opening a space on the waiting list for you!

Add numbers will be given to students on the waiting list, first.

But, I REALLY NEED this class...

Answer:
Check to see if there are openings under the cross-referenced heading. Many of the classes I teach are cross-referenced.

For example ECE-314 and SOC-312 are the same course, GERON-300 and SOC-335 are the same course, SOC-310 and FCS-320 are the same course.

If all sections are full then you will have to attend the specific course orientation. Add numbers will be given at the end of that orientation meeting.

I finally got an add number...

Answer:
If you get an Add Number, you must:

  1. Enroll asap, your add number will expire (see #2 & #3 below)
  2. Make sure you are adding to the correct course code (or section number). The add number for one section will not work for a different section.
  3. Pay your fees immediately, otherwise you may automatically be dropped by Admissions & Records.
