Swapping Sections


Once the term begins in February, you can request a section swap from the class teaching assistant (TA) or instructor.


The TA will notify you if they can accommodate your swap request. In some cases, the section you want may be full. Swaps are usually managed on a first-come/first-served basis by the TA before taking new students from the waitlist.


The TA will then reconcile all section swaps with Educational Services; no further action is required for the student
