Next semester is my first at CSUMB, I my schedule has a 2 hour block that could fit a class into, but all the classes at that time are full. Should i send an email to the professors showing an interest in the class and secure an add code. I am going to their classes the first day to see if they will add me, but should I email them? Does that seem TOO pushy or desperate? Thanks for any advice!
If you need units to have a full load (15 units or so), ping the teachers and see what happens.
One of the secrets of navigating a timely college graduation is flexibility. Make school your first priority and take classes when they are available.
