Students wishing to apply for a Spring 2021 seminar course should submit the seminar application form to Academic Services by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 30th.  The seminar application form is also located on the Academic Services page of the TLS Intranet under the Course Documents heading, or may be picked up from the Academic Services Office.  The selections for the seminar courses will be posted by November 9th.  Please note that students may apply for only one seminar which could meet the writing requirement, but may register for more seminar courses should there be openings available after the application process has been completed

Students who are not placed in their first choice of simulation course will be added to the waitlist for that course. A student who does not want to take a course for which the student is pre-registered or wait-listed should drop it through Gibson promptly and notify Academic Services. Any re
