Spring 2015 registration opened on Monday, 10 Nov. Classes are starting to fill up. Be sure to register early to guarantee a seat in your required or elective courses. I do expect the DNSC electives to fill to capacity.
Interested in serving as a GTA for the spring? If so, speak to the professor for the class you’d like to be a GTA. Each professor selects their GTAs.
