Teaching
Your frequently asked question about course registration: "The San Marcos session is full, can I enroll in the Round Rock session and attend lectures in San Marcos?" The answer is no. Sessions/classrooms have capacity constraints for a reason. Instructors who violate the rules would be held responsible for unfortunate situations. So please do not email me about this and use the waiting list. Thanks!
