Frequently Asked Questions (about enrollment)

Q: Is the course going online? A: Yes, but we prefer the term remote. The course is not automated, and this is an in-person course that has been abruptly moved online. There are still human staff members holding class remotely.

Q: Can you send me a permission code? A: No. We will be using the enrollment system's automated processing of the waitlist to fill any vacancies. In truly exceptional cases, we will consider requests from undergraduate advising (not directly from students) once the quarter has started.

Q: Since the course is online remote, will you be expanding it? A: Probably not. Although we are no longer limited by room size, we are still maintaining the same student:staff ratio.

Q: What are the course prerequisites? A: From the course catalog: CSE 12 and CSE 12L; and CSE 13E or CSE 13S or CSE 11 or CSE 14 and CSE 14L. CSE 16 recommended.

Q: Should I do anything to prepare for remote learning? A: Double check your internet meets the campus connectivity requirements.
