Consent of the Department.
If you are in a concentration that requires from you a 503 course different from 503.01, make sure that you inform the course instructor about what decimalized variant of 503 you want to register for.
Registration Since the prerequisite of this course is consent of the Department, people interested in taking the course cannot directly register in PeopleSoft. To deal with this, students should follow the following procedure:
  1. Find a supervisor for your research project and discuss with him or her the research project you want to do over fall and winter.
  2. Send the course instructor an email, crossposted to your supervisor, in which you state that you want to do 503 (and what variant of it, if not 503.01), who you are (i.e. we need to be able to identify you for PeopleSoft), who your supervisor is and what project you agreed on (title plus one or two sentences describing what you want to look into).
  3. We will check that you fulfill all the requirements and if yes indicate to PeopleSoft that you are allowed to register. We will then send you an email asking you to register via PeopleSoft (or tell you if there is a problem).
  4. After registering make sure that PeopleSoft has your current email address, so that we can inform you about future steps. Information about these future steps will also appear on this page under News.
