Overview

Certain MATH and COMP courses are very popular, so that they fill rapidly. These courses may require a signature to enroll or may have an electronic waitlist in order to manage demand. If a course is listed below, then it has an electronic form for requesting a signature or getting on the waitlist, or both.

COMP Courses for Fall 2017

To request a signature for any COMP course listed below, click the link for that course below and complete the form. You will hear back from us if and when we can give you a seat in the course. Students are chosen based on priority throughout the registration period. Do not assume you will get a seat just because you ask for a signature and the course appears to have open seats. For other courses listed or crosslisted as COMP, you should check with the instructor.

ACTC Students: All of these courses are closed to ACTC students until after Macalester students finish registering. At that point, if any seats remain open, ACTC students may email the contact person listed below to see if those seats might be available for ACTC students. In most cases these courses will fill with Macalester students and no seats will be available.

Questions about this registration process should be directed to Susan Fox at fox@macalester.edu.
