Information for Professor Rudmann’s Prospective Students:
What You Should Do If The Class You Want To Take Is Full
I appreciate your interest in taking one of my classes. The demand for classes has grown enormously over the last few years as a direct result of California’s budget crisis, and you may be facing a situation in which the class you need has no available seats.
If you wish to petition one of my closed classes, you should put your name on the waitlist for the class. (Note: This information is for my classes. Not all IVC instructors use the waitlist system.) When a registered student drops in the period leading up to the first day of class, the student at the top of the waitlist will receive an Add Permit Code by email that is valid for 24 hours. If the student does not add the class within 24 hours, the next student on the waitlist will be given that opportunity.
Some registered students do not show up on the first day of class. If that happens I will give the available seats to students on the waitlist who are present in the order in which their names appear. (Online courses do not meet. See special note below.)
Special note for online classes
If you are on the waitlist for my online US History courses, I will email you by Wednesday, August 20, if I am able to offer you a seat in the class. Honestly, you should make other plans, as openings in online courses are rare.
I wish you luck in getting the class you want.
