Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.
