How to Add my Class and how to Stay in my Class.

Students trying to add my course must attend all class meetings until I decide whether or not to add them (probably by the 3rd class meeting). If there is space and if I decide to add students, then students will be added in the order on the wait list. Registered students missing first two class meetings will be dropped.

On third class meeting if you are trying to add, please approach me in the beginning of the class so that I can put you on the add list. I will email you to your csustan email the permission number that you will use to register on line.
