Crashing a History of Art & Architecture Course

The Department of History of Art & Architecture recognizes the difficulties that students face in adding courses and recommends the following when trying to add a closed or full course:

  1. Please do NOT email the instructor to see if there is a waiting list. Instead, sign up on the waiting list on GOLD
    • Make sure to fill out your name, major/minor, and class year (e.g., third year, fourth year)
    • Please note that the enrollment availability listed on GOLD might not accurately reflect the latest enrollment for the course
    • Reminder: students cannot add themselves to a waitlist unless one of the following occurs: the student has enrolled in 12 units, or all lectures and sections of the course are full or closed
  2. Attend and participate in all lecture and section (if applicable) meetings and assignments for the first week, both synchronous and asynchronous
    • If you are unable to attend a class and/or section meeting due to religious observance, illness, or other unavoidable conflict, do contact the instructor via email
  3. If you haven't been admitted to the course prior to the first class, also try joining the Canvas course site, if a page exists, as another way to follow the first week of class
    • NOTE: Even if you are able to join the Canvas site, this does not mean you are officially enrolled in the course. You must be registered on GOLD to receive credit for the course
  4. Continue attending lectures and discussion sections until you receive admission
    • Priority of enrollment and distribution of add codes are at the discretion of the instructor. Generally speaking, priority is given to those who participate in lectures and discussion sections - please note crashing protocol may vary by instructor

Add codes will not be distributed prior to completing this procedure.
