  1. I just had called and scheduled myself for class SC217, after being notified of openings via KIT. It came to mind, that when ones sends in his/her program request form, they may not be able to remember which classes they had asked to enroll. Upon confirmation via the mailed “Student Schedule’; programs that were desired might not be able to be recalled. I therefore ask that if possible, when sending out the approved student schedules, a notation be entered indicating the classes requested but not able to participate.


    • Jared,

      Thank you for your suggestion on how to improve our registration process. We are in the process of implementing some changes to the technology behind the enrollment process, and will take your suggestion under consideration.
