How to crash a class in college

How to crash a class in college

I’ve been a college professor for fourteen years now. In that time, I’ve seen some pretty silly behavior. It is not, for example, all that unusual for students (usually women) to show up for an early class in pajamas and fuzzy slippers, toting a large cup of coffee. Then there’s the dude who spent every class break sipping Red Bull, smoking cigarettes, and taking puffs off an asthma inhaler. Or the guy who left my class in a huff (and never came back) because we read an article explaining why herbal detox products are a scam.

All of which (except maybe the Red Bull and cigarettes) is fairly harmless. But some of the things that students do in first few days of class, especially when it comes to crashing classes, can cause serious aggravation for professors, not to mention other students.

So here, for your benefit, is a list of Things You Shouldn’t Do When Crashing Classes.

Rule #1: Don’t Lurk.

In professor-speak, a lurker is someone who has been told that a class is full, that there is a long waiting list, that they have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting a spot and that they should go look for open sections, but who takes a seat in the classroom anyway. The logic of the lurker seems to be that if they take a seat, they must be in the class, right? Wrong. There are often more chairs in a classroom than there are spots for students (this is due to state and contractual limits on class size), and in any case, only the professor can add a student. All the lurker is doing with this strategy is throwing off the attendance count.

(Incidentally, you should never ask a professor to enroll you over the maximum number of students. While it may be just as easy to lecture to thirty-one people as it is to lecture to thirty, you are asking the professor to grade your work without compensation. This is like your boss asking you to work a couple extra hours without pay. Not cool. Also, you are asking the professor to betray all his unemployed professor friends who just might get some work if new sections are opened to accommodate student overflow.)

There is also a more sophisticated species of lurker who will introduce themselves to the professor and ask politely if they can ‘sit in’ on the class just in case a space becomes available. Less experienced professors will allow this type of lurker to remain, usually after a stern lecture about their slim chances of getting a spot. This kind of lurker will attend class scrupulously, participate in discussions, and even do homework, all in an effort to impress the professor. The problem comes at the end of the add period when no spaces have opened up and the lurker is asked to leave. Having invested all that time and effort, this type of lurker is often reluctant to go. Professors that I know have had to call the campus police to eject disgruntled lurkers from their classrooms. So don’t put yourself in that situation. Don’t lurk.

Rule #2: Don’t Shop.

A shopper is a student who goes around collecting add codes for multiple sections of the same class or multiple classes that fulfill the same requirement. Having done this, the shopper decides which class they will ‘keep’ based on which one requires the least work or which professor seems friendliest. This is all very well for the shopper, but creates problems in the various classes they visited. Let’s say the shopper visited six sections of a class and obtained four add codes before deciding on the section they wanted. That leaves three professors who think they have a student but don’t, three professors who will probably hold a spot open on the (incorrect) assumption that the shopper will return. What that really means is three other students who don’t get a class because some greedy shopper wanted an easy grade.

Moral issues aside, things don’t always go smoothly for shoppers. It often takes them a few days of shopping around to decide on a class section. That means that they’ve taken an add code but have vanished from class without using it. Savvy professors recognize this sort of behavior and assume that the shopper will probably not be coming back. When the shopper finally does pick a section, they may return to find it already filled by legitimate crashers. Shoppers who wait too long are in no position to be picky, and often wind up with their second or third choice class, which, given their habits, can set off a domino effect of scrambling to get other classes that fit their new and unexpected schedule. So don’t shop. The schedule you save may be your own.

Rule #3: You are Not a Lawyer.

Inevitably, there are always a few students who enroll in a class and then get dropped from it before the class ever meets. There are a couple of standard reasons for this. In my experience, most students who get dropped before opening day didn’t pay their tuition fees on time. In the second most popular scenario, a student enrolls in the next class in a series on the assumption that they will pass the one they are in now. When they don’t, the enrollment system automatically drops them from the new class, which they are no longer eligible to take. Usually, this type of student presents no problem. Recognizing that they have been legitimately dropped, they will pay their fees or pick a more appropriate class and go about their business like regular crashers.

(The matter is complicated by the fact that sometimes people get dropped during the enrollment period for no damn reason at all. Last year, due to a clerical error, this happened to literally hundreds of students at my school. If you really have been dropped from a class in error, a phone call or quick e-mail from your admissions office to the professor goes a long way.)

I will occasionally get students (usually first time freshman) who honestly don’t understand why they have been dropped, or even that they have been dropped. I don’t mind explaining things to these students, and they usually take it pretty well. Sometimes, however, people try to argue. The lawyer student will show up for opening day, usually with a piece of paper showing that they were, at some point, enrolled in the class. When it becomes clear that they are no longer on the roster, the lawyer student will charge up to the front desk, waving their piece of paper, and demand to be reinstated immediately

The lawyers student is operating under the assumption that because they were in a class at one time that this entitles them to jump the line ahead of wait-listed students and other crashers. This is simply not true. If you have been dropped during the enrollment period for non-payment or any other legitimate reason, you have no more right to add a class than any other crasher. So do yourself and your fellow students a favor, and don’t start an argument you’re not going to win.

And there you have it. Three Things You Shouldn’t Do When Crashing Classes.

If you’re an incoming freshman, a first time college student in other words, bear in mind that you are the low man on the enrollment priority totem pole. Be prepared to take whatever classes you can get and stick with them through the end. If you can manage that for a couple of semesters, you’ll be top dog soon enough.

How to crash a class in college

Montclair State University students now have the opportunity to sit in a classroom of their choice for a day thanks to a program created by University College called Crash-a-Class.

Academic Program Coordinator of University College Bobby Serrani wants to ensure that students of the university are having the best experiences, not only outside the classroom but inside as well.

“We wanted to do something to tie in with the in-class experience so that’s where Crash-a-Class came from,” Serrani said. “Students can get the inside feel of what it’s like inside the major from inside the classroom.”

The Crash-a-Class program first started in October 2018 during the Academic Exploration Week. The program will run March 18 through March 29.

Another member of University College who is assisting students signing up is Academic Program Coordinator Amanda Cosenza who thinks that Crash-a-Class is a great opportunity for pre-majors as well.

“[The professors] opened up their sections of classes to allow for our pre-major students to sit in a lecture where they normally wouldn’t have that opportunity,” Cosenza said. “We have sections in the School of Education, biology and even [the] School of Communication [and Media].”

According to Cosenza, the Crash-a-Class program is also highlighting new majors on campus, such as the medical humanities major.

Professor of Classics and General Humanities Dr. Mary English opened up her section of beginning Greek II feels the Crash-a-Class program is giving students the chance to be more open about certain courses.

“In the broadest sense I think it’s a great opportunity for students to come to observe classes and preview the material or subjects they would like to take next semester,” English said.

As a result of this program just becoming available at the beginning of the academic year, some students wish it had been available prior to declaring their major.

Freshman classics major Alyssa Tkac is taking beginning Greek II and feels this program could have helped her understand her major.

“I think it’s a really good idea because when I came to Montclair State, I came in as a classics major,” Tkac said. “I have never taken any classes in classics, so I went in not knowing what to expect.”

Aside from assisting in major selections, Crash-a-Class is useful in helping students experience certain electives in order to choose a minor and fulfill credit requirements or major-elective requirements.

Senior classics and Latin double major Andrew Maciolek feels like Crash-a-Class could have assisted him in choosing his minor.

“I wish that I could have sat in on courses instead of taking general education courses. I would have used my electives better,” Maciolek said. “This would have led for me to choose a minor quickly.”

Need to add or drop a class? After you register, you can adjust your classes within the add/drop period posted on the academic calendar. Or you can join a waitlist and, if space is available, add a class that has already filled.

We can help you build the best schedule possible so you are on track to meet your goals.

Adding and Dropping a Class/Waitlist Information

Once you have registered, you might be able to add a class even if it has already started. Simply follow the steps needed to add a course and, if space is available, be sure to add the course by the deadline posted in the academic calendar. Note: You may not add classes after the add deadline.

Add a Class Online:

  1. Obtain an Add Code from the instructor.
  2. Go to:
  3. Login with username and password.
  4. Under WebAdvisor, click on “Registration – Add & Drop.”
  5. Click on “Online Add with Faculty Permission.”
  6. You will see the screen below and be asked to enter the two sets of numbers on the Add Code. Click on “SUBMIT” (Please keep the Add Code until enrollment is verified.)
  7. Once you successfully add the section, use the “Make a Payment” link in the “Make a Payment & Account” section and pay the amount due.
  8. If you need assistance with adding a class before the deadline to add the class please fill out the online add/drop form.

Classes can only be added with:

  • An appointment time
  • Appropriate prerequisites
  • Fees and other holds resolved

Classes cannot be added with:

  • Time conflicts
  • Excessive repeats of the course
  • Schedule exceeds the allowable number of units, unless there is overload approval

If you need to drop a class, it is your responsibility to officially drop each class by the deadline date. If you do not drop by the deadline, you may receive a substandard grade, a withdrawal “W,” and need to pay all relevant fees.

Drop a Class Online

  1. Go to MyECC.
  2. Log in with your username and password.
  3. In the Self-Service Menu (left column), click on “Registration,” then click on “Register and Drop Sections.”
  4. Under Current Registrations, click the checkbox next to the class section you wish to drop.
  5. Click the SUBMIT button (note: once you click submit you may not go back).
  6. Once you successfully drop the class, review your class schedule (scroll to bottom of screen to view updated schedule) to make sure class was dropped.

Voluntary Course Drop

Remember, it is your responsibility to process an official withdrawal from class. Failure to do so may result in a letter grade of A through F. You may drop a class or classes within the refund period and add another class or classes using the fees already paid. If you fail to properly register or add a class, you will NOT receive credit for that class.

If you drop after the refund deadline, the fees you paid for the classes are forfeited.

You may drop a class before the refund deadlines and add a class with additional fees if the class is dropped after the refund deadline. To add the same class at a different time/date/instructor, you must request a lateral transfer from both instructors. All transfers are processed through the Admissions Office.

Check the academic calendar for final drop dates:

  • Last Day to Drop and Be Eligible for a Fee Refund
  • Last Day to Drop without a Notation on Permanent Record
  • Last Day to Drop with a “W”

Dropped Due to Attendance

If you enroll in class but do not attend the first scheduled class meeting, you may be dropped from the roster and your place given to waitlisted students who were unable to enroll at the time of registration. In an online class, the instructor will indicate what she/he considers the first class meeting.

If you register for a class and never attend, you are still responsible for dropping the class. Failure to officially drop a class by the appropriate deadline may result in a “W” and you may be required to pay all fees associated with the class.

Regular attendance is expected of every student. You may be dropped from a class when absences exceed the number of units assigned to the course. This rule also applies to excessive absences due to illness or medical treatment. If you have been absent due to illness or medical appointments, you must explain the absence directly to the instructor.

Dropped Due to Nonpayment

All fees must be paid by the posted fee payment deadlines or you will be dropped from all classes. If you were on a waitlist and then admitted to the class, you must pay those class fees by the same deadlines, or you will be dropped from all classes.

How does the Waitlist Work?

The Waitlist Process

If a class section’s status is “Open,” that means there is still space for you to register for that class. If its status is “Waitlisted,” there might be some seats available, or you can be placed in line to get into the class. “Closed” means that the class is completely full as well as the waitlist (10 people max on the waitlist). To join a waitlist, you should email the professor or attend the first day of class to ask if there is space in the class.

If you are on a waitlist for a class, be sure to check your El Camino email DAILY to find out if you have been admitted to the class. If admitted, you must log in to MyECC, add the class, then pay class fees on or before the fee payment deadline or you will be dropped from all classes, including those already paid for.

It is your responsibility to keep informed of your waitlist status and to pay any fees due by the posted deadlines.

If a class is full and you are a current CSULB student, you can place yourself on a waitlist for seats that might become available. If a seat becomes available, the student highest on the waitlist will be enrolled (subject to the limitations listed below).

When Can I Waitlist?

If a class is full and you are a current CSULB student, you can place yourself on a waitlist according to the Registration Dates & Deadlines for Fall or Spring.

Waitlists become null and void after this date.

How Waitlisting Works?

  • All scheduled class sections have waitlists, based on the size of the class. You can monitor your position on the waitlist via your MyCSULB Student Center.
  • You can waitlist for a maximum of 5 units. (Important note: waitlisted units are included toward your enrollment unit limit and the waitlist does not check for time conflicts with your other courses.)
  • You must meet any requisites for the class before you can be placed on the waitlist, e.g., course pre-requisites, section co-requisites, major and class level restrictions. See Search for Classes/Browse Catalog in your Student Center.
  • If a seat becomes available, the student highest on the waitlist will be enrolled, subject to the restrictions below.
  • If you are moved from the waitlist into the class, you will be sent email notification if you have specified a preferred email address in your Student Center/Personal Information at MyCSULB.
  • You will not be billed for waitlisted classes but will be billed if you are moved from a waitlist into a class and the additional units result in higher registration fees. It is important to check your class schedule and account summary regularly in your MyCSULB Student Center to avoid possible cancellation of newly added classes.
  • If you are moved from the waitlist into a class, it is your responsibility to drop the class(as with any other class) if you decide not to attend. Failure to do so will result in a WU grade on your record which will lower your grade point average (WU = F).
  • There is no guarantee you will be moved off a waitlist and enrolled in a class. Approximately 1–2 weeks prior to the beginning of classes, the process to move students from the waitlist runs for the final time, then all waitlists are purged. Instructors are not required to add students who were previously on the waitlist.
  • If you decide you no longer wish to wait for space to become available, you may drop yourself from the waitlist.

Waitlist Restrictions

Students will be moved from the waitlist into the class if space becomes available, in the order placed, unless:

  1. There is a time conflict with another registered class. Since potential time conflicts are not checked when you place yourself on a waitlist, you should ensure that waitlisted classes do not conflict with your current schedule.
  2. You are already enrolled in another section of the same course. Do not use waitlisting to try to get into another section of a course in which you are already enrolled, as you will not be moved from the waitlist if space becomes available. You need to choose whether to take a chance and place yourself on the waitlist of the full section or remain enrolled in the current section.
  3. The only seats available are reserved and you do not meet the reserve requirements.
  4. You have a hold on your record that prevents registration.

If you cannot be moved from the waitlist, you will be skipped and the next student considered. You will not be reconsidered until the next time space becomes available in the class.

A University of New Haven student is dead and a graduate seriously injured after a pre-dawn crash in the city on Saturday, authorities said.

Raymond Rolle, 21, who was living in West Haven, was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital where he died after the one-car crash, police said.

The driver, who police identified only as a 26-year-old West Haven man, was taken to Bridgeport Hospital to be treated for life-threatening injuries. He was listed in stable condition, according to police. The university identified him as Kenu Adderley, a member of the Class of 2020 who obtained his master of science at the university last year.

In a note posted on the university’s website Saturday, Ophelie Rowe-Allen, dean of students, said Rolle was a computer engineering major in the Class of 2022. The international student was a native of the Bahamas and was active in the university’s TEDx (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Club.

Rolle’s adviser, Christopher Martinez, associate professor of computer engineering, said Raymond was passionate about his studies and great to have in class.

“This is going to be very hard for his professors and classmates,” Martinez said. “He was so kindhearted, and he got along with everyone.”

Martinez said Rolle was a hard worker who could regularly be seen in the lab on weekends working on his project for his junior design experience class.

“The last time I saw him, he was talking about applying for internships and grad school,” he said. “He had a great deal of potential.”

University president Steven H. Kaplan said, “I am heartbroken for Raymond’s parents, his family, friends, and professors. The death of someone so young with so much potential is a horrific tragedy and an unspeakable loss.”

He noted the extra effort Rolle had to make to get to the University of New Haven.

“As an international student, he showed great dedication in coming to the United States to pursue his most lofty goals and aspirations,” Kaplan said. “I hope that Raymond’s loved ones are able to find some comfort in the memories they have of him.”

Kaplan said his thoughts and prayers also go out to the surviving student and his family and friends.

According to police, officers were called to the scene of the crash on College Avenue between College and Liberty streets about 3:30 a.m. Police said Rolle was in the passenger seat of the black Chevrolet Cruz when it struck a tree.
