Out of consideration for the professor and all those involved in the preparation of courses, your call should be made as much in advance of the scheduled start of the lecture as possible. Course lectures for which a minimum number of students have not enrolled may be cancelled. Unless your name is on the enrollment list, we will not be able to contact you in the event of a course lecture cancellation or change of venue. Remember that even if a particular course title appears on your active registration, you are not automatically enrolled in the associated lecture.
