Department consent has been removed from CS 454

Please be aware that department consent has been removed from CS 454 for Spring 2018 as per the information on the course selection page

If the class is full then you will need to wait for students to drop the course before you could add the course for Spring 2018. Please note that the deadline to add courses is 11.59 p.m. on Monday, May 14, 2018.

Department consent has been removed from CS 458

Please be aware that department consent has been removed from CS 458 for Spring 2018 as per the information on the course selection page

The class is full so you will need to wait for a number of students to drop the course before you could add the course for Spring 2018. If the test section is at 160 or higher than it means that you cannot add the course until enough students across both sections have dropped it so it is at 159 or lower.
