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.
