-Click on Modules to view the Registration module.
-Post in one of the two threads below, depending on whether you want to self-register or not:
-Click on the Self-Registration/Enable Portal discussion thread in the Registration module if you want to register yourself for winter classes when registration opens. Type your name in this thread, and then Beth will enable your portal for self-registration on Monday, November 14, at 7am CST, so that you can register yourself beginning that day and time.
-Click on the Request Beth to Register/Class Choices & Back-Ups discussion thread in the Registration module if you want Beth to register you for winter classes when registration opens. Beth will then register students in the order of posts in this thread starting at 7am CST on Monday, November 14.
-All students will be able to make any schedule changes (drop/add classes) from November 14 through December 4. MFA open enrollment will end on Monday, December 5, so all schedule changes on or after December 5 must be made by emailing Beth.
-Note: Do NOT send registration preferences by email before December 5. Canvas must be used during open enrollment through December 4. Only changes requested after open enrollment (December 5 and later) may be made via email.
-WAIT LISTS: If you hope to take a class that you think may fill quickly, you can post your name in the Wait List thread for that class beginning at 7am CST on Monday, November 14. After MFA open enrollment ends, any drops must be requested via email, so Beth will contact the first person on the Wait List for the open spot. After 24 hours, if the first person has not responded to the email, Beth will offer the spot to the second person on the Wait List for that class.
-Post any questions about the new pre-registration process and Wait List process in the Questions for Beth thread in the MFA Students group in Canvas.
