Fulbright College Will Test New Method for Enrolling Students in Online Communication Classes

Students and advisers should be aware of a new, streamlined method in place to enroll students in online communication classes offered in the summer and fall of 2017.

The J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences will pilot test the new method in UAConnect for only 1000-, 2000- and 3000-level online classes offered by the Department of Communication. This method creates two separate sections of each online communication class for enrollment purposes only. One section will be reserved for students in online degree programs, and the other section will be reserved for students who are not in online degree programs.

Students attempting to enroll in the wrong section will receive an error message directing them to the appropriate section. If students in online degree programs receive an error message while trying to enroll in a section reserved for online students, they should contact their advisors to ensure their online academic program is coded correctly in UAConnect.

The week before classes begin, all sections will be opened for general enrollment on a space-available basis. Once classes begin, the two sections are merged for learning purposes.

The goal is to test an easier, simpler process for ensuring that online-only students can enroll in the classes they need and that online classes reach their maximum enrollment capacity.

Other online classes will continue under the current four-step process that does not separate students into sections based on their online/on-campus program status. Instead, it uses temporary enrollment caps during different priority periods to reserve seats for online-only students.
