  • Major Blocks

    Major blocks have been removed from CJS courses. If there is room in a course, non-majors can now register. If the class is full, students will need to add themselves to the waitlist. If a class has a waitlist, do not submit an override request. Please do not contact the instructor to ask for an override.
