With enrollment questions:

Contact Thomas Brown or Ana Renteria at the Math Department: during their office hours, in person (NOT on email!) if you want your question to be answered quickly.

Do NOT contact the instructor, as I have no impact on enrollment in the classes.

Math Department "No Waiting List" Announcement, 1/17/2017:

by Jennifer Sixt Pinney, Student Services Supervisor, Department of Mathematics, UC Berkeley, 967 Evans Hall, Berkeley CA

Due to complications with waiting lists in Cal Central, this Spring the Math Department is piloting a "No Waiting List" policy for Math courses which have discussion sections. In order to help the Math Department assess any remaining demand for these courses, please fill out the ENROLLMENT SURVEY if you'd still like to take Math 1A, 1B, 10B, 16A, 16B, 53, 54, 55, 110 or 128A in Spring 2017 but you haven't been able to get in. Note that it might not be possible to open up any new sections in 1B, 10B Lecture 2, 16B Lecture 2, 54, 110, or 128A because the enrollments in these classes have already reached the maximum capacity of their lecture rooms.

IMPORTANT: In addition to filling out this form, please continue to check for space in these courses via Cal Central. As soon as someone drops one of these courses the course will appear as "Open" in Cal Central and can be added.
