Info on Courses

<p>Is there anyway to find out what course sections area already "closed" for fall? Also is there any way to find out which courses are normally offered only one semester each year? Also is there any way to find out which class times are available?</p>

<p>Our D's schedule presently has two courses which were in no way on her wishlist. We're trying to figure out what alternatives make sense and how to pursue other selections. </p>

<p>Public speaking and a Religon course (myths) were added to her schedule in place of lab science and art selections.</p>

<p>For example, Religon and World Cultures would be much preferred to mythology, for someone who has an interest in International Economics and Commerce. </p>

<p>Any help or guidance will be appreciated.</p>

<p>The only way to find out which courses are closed for next semester is to have your daughter log onto her Banner Account (<a href="https://bannerselfservice.lafayette.edu/pls/bprod/twbkwbis.P_WWWLogin%5B/url%5D"&gt;https://bannerselfservice.lafayette.edu/pls/bprod/twbkwbis.P_WWWLogin&lt;/a> ) and check out the section under "Student Services > Registration > Look up classes to add".
This will also show you the days and times for each class. I would recommend having the course catalog open alongside since this page only gives the names of the courses, not the descriptions. Normally the catalog will mention whether a class is offered every semester or just fall or just spring.</p>

<p>It's surprising that the registrar put her in two courses that she did not have on her list. They are normally very accommodating in setting up student's schedules.
Once you decided your new courses, email the registrar at <a href="mailto:registrar@lafayette.edu">registrar@lafayette.edu</a><a href="include%20your%20L%20number">/email</a> and tell them the changes to your schedule. She will also have a specific time during orientation where students can sign up to change classes.</p>

<p>P.S. - If there's a class she really wants to take and it's full, try emailing the professor saying she really wants to get into the class. That has always helped me in the past.</p>

<p>Thank you! We'll be looking for alternatives this evening.</p>
