What Should I Look For Before Switching Classes?

Switching Classes

When switching out classes make sure you first check to see if the class you are wanting to register for has a waitlist and if there are any students on it. Some classes will appear open but are really not. The seat that appears open is actually reserved for students on the waitlist.  

If you try to register for a class that appears open but has an active waitlist, you will only have the option to waitlist for the course, and in turn, may lose your seat in the class that you were initially registered for.
