Second 500 Section Open: Those Waitlisted on First Section Must Manually Register to Be in Newly Opened Section

We have just opened a second section of ENGL 500 for the fall. There were over ten people on the waitlist for the original section. Those waitlisted people now need to go and actively register for the newly opened 500 section in order to be in it. There is no mechanism by which students on the waitlist are automatically enrolled in the new section. As two courses per-semester is the full-time load, every full-time student planning to take 500 this fall should consider taking that and one other course, so as to not be overwhelmed with reading and requirements for three courses. This may require you to drop a course in which you’re currently enrolled. Feel free to contact me for advising on this situation if you have any questions (
