Closed Classes

Occasionally during registration, classes may reach maximum capacity and become closed. Liberal Arts advisors are not able to open seats for students; this ability resides with the department. If you are trying to get into a closed class, please contact the department in which the class resides to inquire about the procedure for closed class overrides. Please keep in mind that the number of students allowed into a class is restricted by the physical size of available classrooms and by fire codes.
