Linguistics Department Policy on Crashing Courses

All waitlists are now online through GOLD. Waitlists are sorted by major and then by unit standing, with those majoring in the Linguistics department getting priority. For any questions, please email the Staff Undergraduate Advisor, undergradadvisor@linguistics.ucsb.edu. Students who are unable to enroll in a course through GOLD because the course  is full should contact the Staff Undergraduate Advisor and request to be placed on the waiting list.
Students must attend class every day, unless told otherwise by the class instructor. Our waitlists on GOLD are set up to stop admitting students prior to the first day of class. The class instructor or TA will then handle issuing approval codes based on priority. 
Typically, after the second primary class session, instructors will review the waiting lists. If two students are otherwise ranked equally, they will be ordered by the date they first joined the waiting list, with earlier students given priority.  
Teaching Assistants are not involved in the process of attempting to add a class. Please do not ask them for information about adding classes.  Instead, consult your instructor or the Staff Undergraduate Advisor.
