Biology If you did not get in to a closed Biology course and you would like to request to add that course, please use this wait list request form.
Here are the directions (these are also given in the form itself):

  • Use this form to request to be added to a CLOSED Biology course (you can simply add an open course at the Registrar’s Office window starting on the day of your class year during drop/add period).
  • Your request(s) through this form will be included in a wait list that will then be passed along to the faculty teaching the course of interest, and you will hear back from that faculty person about your request.
  • Take this opportunity to be very clear about why you need the specific course at the specific time (Fall 2015) – faculty will use this information to make any adds as fairly as possible.
  • If you do not see a closed Biology course listed in the pulldown menu, that means that you should contact that faculty person directly instead of using this form.
  • Forms submitted before 3:00 pm on Sunday May 3 will receive full consideration.  There is no advantage to submitting your request early, as long as you meet the 3:00 pm Sunday May 3 deadline.
