Most of the students at the University of Alaska Anchorage that register for chemistry lectures and labs need these classes to graduate. We understand this and we enroll as many students as our capacities allow each semester. Because of the high demand of our chemistry labs and the fact that we are limited by the number of labs available and the number of stations in each lab, we may not be able to accommodate all of the students who need these classes each semester. As a result, we’ve instituted wait lists for all of our 100-level labs in order to fairly add students to labs where spaces become available. The wait lists for classes that are filled to capacity are activated around the start of the semester when enrollment becomes restricted for our labs. We do our best to fill each and every class to capacity by the add/drop deadline!
Please note that these wait lists are for courses offered on the Anchorage campus only. These wait lists are separate from and not integrated with the UAOnline wait lists which terminate at the start of the semester.
During the Registration Period
After a lab has filled up, we cannot add additional students to that lab. It is the student's responsibility to keep checking online for available spots during the registration period, and to register in the course if a spot becomes available. Starting July 1st, you can request to be added to a wait list. After the start of the semester, registration becomes restricted and only the lab coordinator can add students to labs at that point. If your name is on a wait list, you will be added to the lab as space becomes available but only after the semester has started.
If a space becomes available in the lab you are interested in, the lab coordinator will call or e-mail you and instruct you on how to proceed with registration at that time. If there are no spaces available, you will receive an e-mail telling you so by the add/drop deadline. You may contact the lab coordinator at any point to check on your status.
The wait list add process may take up to two weeks (until the add/drop deadline). It is the student's responsibility to contact their instructor as soon as possible after registration to inquire about homework and to catch up on any work that was missed.
All students must attend a safety orientation before they are allowed to participate in their lab. If you are added to a lab after the first meeting, the lab coordinator will contact you to schedule a separate mandatory safety orientation which usually occurs the second or third Thursday and Friday of the semester.
No Spaces Available
If there are no spaces available by the add/drop deadline, please try to register again the following semester. Remember, the sooner you register for any class, the better the chance that you will get a spot in the class of your choice. Our labs typically fill up within a couple of hours after registration opens. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please don’t hesitate to contact the lab coordinator, Adeline Schlabaugh, at 786-4784 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
