Other Notes

Wait List: The registrar will use an automatic wait list for most courses in the Honors College.  If a student registers for a course that is full, they can select a dropdown menu and click "Wait List" to be put on the wait list.  Then they will be notified by email when a space opens.  The student will have 36 hours to register for the course upon receiving the email; if they do not register in that time, they lose their spot on the wait list, and the next person on the list will be notified by email that they can register for the class within 36 hours.  Students are therefore advised to check their FAU Email account at least once a day.  Faculty still have the ability to permit a student who absolutely needs a course to register for it without being put on a wait list.

First Class Attendance:  Students who do not attend the first class of the semester without prior approval of the instructor should expect to be dropped from that course.
