Crashing Online Courses
A "closed" course is one that has reached maximum enrollment. Students may not add closed courses without instructor consent. Most online courses have the same enrollment limits as the equivalent "traditional" sections.
To try crashing a closed online course, follow these steps:
- BEFORE classes begin, consider enrolling in a "traditional" section of the course if the online section you wish to add is closed. You should also talk to a counselor about other courses that meet your needs and requirements.
- BEFORE classes begin, If you are still interested in taking the online section log on to SURF and add yourself to the waitlist for the course. Wait List: Instructions | Demo
- BEFORE & AFTER classes begin, e-mail the instructor at his/her correct e-mail address for a permission number to add. Full-Time and Associate Faculty E-mail Addresses Include your full name, your SURF ID, the specific course you'd like to crash, and let the instructor know you are on the wait list. If there is space and the instructor consents, you will receive a e-mail response with permission code to add. Use the permission number to enroll online, or print the entire e-mail and visit A&R (in person) before the enrollment deadline. Instructors cannot process student enrollments.
