IMPORTANT: If you are not on the class roll that comes out after the last add date, immediately check your schedule at a terminal and start attending the proper section. For no foreseeable reason (computer and registrar personnel mistakes included) will you be allowed to stay in the wrong section or to drop a section for which you are actually enrolled after the last drop date. By simply attending a section you will not be placed on its roll.

Attendance: ** I will choose to take the attendance once in a while. Those who miss a class will lose some points from a quiz or a  test and those who show up will get extra credits toward a quiz or a test.
