First Week of Classes Important Procedures

As you prepare for your classes, please remember the following when it comes to questions about enrollment, classrooms and labs, and email communication:

Enrollment

Students who want you to sign add slips:

Students can add/drop classes themselves on AccessPlus during the first week of classes.  Signing add slips could result in over-enrolled courses, which may lead to adjusted class enrollment limits in the future, and is therefore highly discouraged.  Contact Matthew Sivils for extenuating circumstances.

  • Students insisting on trying to add Engl 150/250 or Engl 302/314 must see Deanna Stumbo (stumbo@iastate.edu, 229 Ross Hall, 294-3516).
  • Send all other students trying to get into your classes to Stacie Schaefer (stacies@iastate.edu, 211 Ross Hall, 294-6229), Christiana Langenberg (clang@iastate.edu, 343 Ross Hall, 294-1655), or Pat Johnson (pat@iastate.edu, 347 Ross Hall, 294-9780).

Students who want to just “sit in” your classes:

Do NOT allow students to “just sit in” on your classes the first week in the “hopes” that someone will drop. ALL dropping/adding must take place on AccessPlus.

Classrooms and Labs

Classrooms are assigned by a centralized university office, Room Scheduling. Labs are assigned by Stacie Schaefer, who makes reasonable efforts to minimize walking time between classes and distance from office buildings. Re-assignments of classrooms or labs can be processed when there are extenuating circumstances, such as a documented workplace accommodation, a student with an accommodation, a last minute schedule change, or a mistake. Contact Stacie Schaefer when these extenuating circumstances arise.
