Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases.
