ESC: SEAS Students Unable to Register for Non-SEAS Courses
Written by Bwog Staff
A tipster from inside the ESC meeting tonight has informed us that the Academic Affairs Representative told the board that a new policy has been instituted this year that bars SEAS students from registering for non-SEAS courses during pre-registration (i.e., this week). The representative said that they can only register for these classes during the Fall. The tipster stresses that this information still needs to be verified officially with the administration, but anecdotal evidence in the meeting suggests that many Engineering students were unable to register for Economics classes today.
Earlier last week, SEAS students received an email saying that those interested in registering for Lit Hum or CC could only do so during a special “SEAS-only registration period just prior to the general change-of-program period in August (date to be announced).”
We will keep you updated as we learn more details. Check back tomorrow for our full roundup of tonight’s meeting!
UPDATE (12:02): JK! ESC President Chris Elizondo set the record straight. Some SEAS students are having difficulty registering for Econ classes, but as of right now, he thinks this was caused by slow internal procedures within the Econ department. ESC is waiting to hear back from them about why students have not been able to register.
