Waitlist, Closed, and Changing Sections

Body

The Department of Mathematics has instituted procedures for adding waitlisted or closed courses and changing sections. Students should periodically check their schedules online as enrollment and classroom changes occur frequently.

Students are able to change from one section to another on their own through the first week of the semester. Students should drop the course they are enrolled in and add the new section in Buckeye Link. Students should first confirm that the desired section is open before dropping their current section.

Note: If the lecture is closed and recitation is open, do not drop the current class. Students will not be able to add themselves to the new section if the associated lecture is closed.

After the First Friday of the Semester

Text

The Department of Mathematics will only approve late adds through the second week of the semester. Students with serious extenuating circumstances may request the department for an exception.

The university releases all course waiting lists after the first Friday of each semester, thus waitlist positions are no longer considered after the first week of the semester. Students wishing to enroll in a course after the first week should be aware of the department's policy.

First come, first served: Monday morning of the second week of the semester students can request permission to enroll in a math class. Thereafter, for week 2 adds please email mathadvisors@math.osu.edu with your specific request including section numbers and course information

  • Will add one seat over the limit of each lecture/recitation if available.
  • Waitlist positions hold no bearing since they no longer exist.

·         Students should know the specific class name, number and section they wish to enroll (e.g., Math 1151 Recitation Section #25654). As well, students should have alternate options in case their desired section is not available.

·         Students will only be enrolled if space exists. If no more space is available, students must wait until the next semester the course is being offered to enroll.

Late adds will not be permitted for Math 1116, Math 1125, Math 1126, Math 1135, Math 1136, Math 1165, Math 1166, Math 2167 and Math 2168. Enrollment into these courses is only permitted through the first week of the semester.

Note: The Ohio State University is not permitted to override the maximum classroom capacity set by fire codes.
