GEN 460 Waiting List Resolution Process

FOR Spring 2023 COURSES

Our goal is to prioritize the entry of students into GEN 460 sections in the fairest way possible. In order to achieve that goal, we need you, the student, to provide us with truthful information by completing this Google Form.

BEFORE COMPLETING THE FORM: For Spring 2023 only, successful completion of COMM 460, Senior Capstone (which will meet TH 9-10:15 am), can count for the GEN 460 requirement. Only complete this form if you CANNOT enroll in COMM 460.

Deadline for priority consideration: Friday, November 11, 4:30 pm

We may not announce decisions until Friday, November 18, 2022.

Entry criteria (in order of importance)

  1. Need for a specific section based on graduation date and impossibility of rearranging other courses and work/personal schedules.

    **Students graduating in May with no other options get first priority; all other applications will only be considered on a space-available basis.**

  2. Significance of hardship in taking a section other than the requested section.
  3. Rank order on the waiting list based on when the form was completed (there are no guarantees of admission to a GEN 460 for applications submitted after November 11, 2022).
  4. Topic preferences.

If you have any questions or trouble completing the form, please contact the Director of General Education, Dr. Scott Waalkes via email at
