Scott Heffner - Political Science

American Government and Politics (Online - Distance Learning)

If already enrolled, please go to the next page, if not, review the following.

This course almost ALWAYS fills before the first day of classes - once the quarter begins and if the class is filled to its maximum, replacing NO SHOWs from those on the Wait List are where most, if not all adds will come from.

To view other POLI 01 sections still with open seats, go to
> check "Show open and wait listed courses/sections"
> "Select Department" [POLI]  
> "View Course/Sections"

Adds are always at the discretion of the instructor - although seats may still appear available, each instructor make their own decision on how many (if any) adds they will accept.   A primary consideration is what will be the most conducive learning environment possible for students enrolled.  

(My ADD process) On the first day of classes ONLY and assuming there are still seats available - using the priority order established from the Wait List:
  • I will send out an email to as many students on the Wait List as I am accepting adds for
  • my email will include an ADD CODE
  • students receiving an add code will have 24 hours to add
  • If on the Wait List and you do not receive an add code by the end of Tuesday (first week of classes), all adds will have already been made. EXCEPT for students who have taken this course (online) with me before and did not pass.
Enrolled students may not log in (Catalyst will not be active) until the first day of classes; if by chance this changes, the instructor will notify you via email.

Again, to view/monitor what the current enrollment looks like for the upcoming quarter/session, and/or registration info, please go to: or use the College's website (no log in required) @

Wanting to ADD but not on Wait List ? Only AFTER all students on the Wait List are first considered ... you are welcomed to contact me on the first day of classes with your request and by the end of the day, I should have a better idea on the add situation.   IF the Wait List is large (15 or more), chances of ADDING as a non-Wait Listed student, drops significantly.

While the College may show "seats open" after the quarter starts, the above still applies.  Exception:  Student(s) who took this class with me before and did not pass, I will give priority even if NOT on the Wait List.
