Crash Policy

To enroll in a closed or full English Department course:

  1. Sign up for the waitlist through the GOLD enrollment system, if available
    • Do not e-mail the professor unless the course is designated  "enrollment by permission only."
  2. Go to the first class meeting AND the first meeting of your desired discussion section, if the course has sections.
  3. Priority of enrollment is at the discretion of the instructor. Criteria to be considered are: wait-list status, major/minor, seniority, date of contact, English Department Specialization, and other factors deemed relevant by the professor.
  4. If you are unable to attend the first class meeting due to religious observance, illness, or other unavoidable conflict, please contact the professor via e-mail before the first class meeting, or, if that is impossible, directly afterwards.
  5. Absence from the first class meeting is grounds for being dropped from the course. Nonetheless, if you wish to drop a class, it is your responsibility to withdraw from the course through GOLD before the drop deadline.
