Page Last Updated: 20-AUG-2016:
Petitioners wanting to add courses:
cannot distribute ADD CODES until the day/night of
the first class meeting.
If you are trying
to enroll in any courses at Fullerton College before
the first class meeting, and
MyGateway/WebSTAR says that the class is
"closed" and to ask your professor for an ADD CODE,
please read this page.
The English Department
is using a wait list for petitioners. When a seat
opens up and you are on the wait list, you will
receive an email notification and have a 48-hour
window of opportunity to add the class. If you are
unable to enroll in the course, try adding yourself
to the wait list first. Once you are on the
waitlist, you should do two tasks. First be sure
that your email address in WebStar has the
"preferred" address checked off and that the email
address is valid and current. Second, you should
login to MyGateway frequently to check your waitlist
status just in case you miss an email from
Admissions that has found its way into your spam
folder or bulk mail folder.
cannot get on the course's waitlist and you want to
add a class, you are considered a petitioner and
must participate in a lottery to see what seat
priority you have after the waitlist folks.
me suggest a strategy:
Technically, though a
class or waitlist is
during the registration period as other students
continue to drop and add sections that best suit
their schedule. By logging in to
MyGateway regularly (on an hourly or even
30-minute basis) between now and the first class
meeting, you increase your chances of getting a
waitlist seat that opens
up after a student changes his/her schedule and
drops the class before it has even started.
really does work if you are persistent.

MyGateway to check the class section's status.
If you are
unsuccessful at adding a course
or adding yourself to the waitlist before 12
a.m. of the first class meeting, you will need to be
prepared with the following paper work before I
can or will give you an
ADD CODE. Again, at the point,
your enrollment status is "petitioner."
If you are
wanting to add
you will need to bring some
on the first day of class.
Only students with this prerequisite
information will be considered
for class enrollment.
You must bring 1 of the 3 following
of evidence in writing to the first class:
Evidence that you passed English 060,
English 099 (or
ESL 186, which is the equivalent to
English 060) verified by either:
signed grade card from your previous
English or ESL professor or
print-out of your English 060,
English 099 or ESL
186 grade from WebSTAR (with your
name and Student ID) or
documentation from counseling that
you have completed the equivalent of
English 060 at another college
Evidence that you scored high enough on
the English placement test (obtained
from a counselor or the Assessment
Center, Berkley Bldg).
students must take the English Placement
Test at the Assessment Center before
they can enroll in any English course.
from a counselor at Fullerton College
who has reviewed your transcripts or
used other multiple measures for
placement in English 100
Again, any combination
of these documents will be sufficient for me
to give you an ADD CODE as long as there is
space in the class.
Post-English 100 Students:
petition English 102, 103, 104, and
200-level courses, you need
prerequisite verification that you
passed English 100 with a grade of C or
better. You must bring 1 of the 3 following
forms of evidence in writing to the first
grade card from your previous English
100 professor or
of your English 100 grade from WebSTAR
(with your name and Student ID) or
documentation from counseling that you
have completed the equivalent of English
100 at another college
here to go to
myGateway to check the class status.
A word of caution:
prerequisite verification does not guarantee you
a seat in the class. Since admissions and
records generates a wait
list of only 7 students,
at the first class meeting, I will conduct a lottery
will be assigned a wait list priority number.
I will fill as many seats as possible the first
night of class with people who are
on the waitlist and then from the
petitioner's list. Maximum
class enrollment is 27 for
English 100; 25 for English 103; 25 for English 104;
35 for English 102; 27 for English 201. I will
not enroll more students than these maximum limits.
Any no-show students will be dropped from the class
on the first day, and I will fill any available
seats first with students on the official wait list.
If seats become
available prior to the second class meeting, I will
email you with an authorization code for the appropriate
CRN after I have verified your
prerequisites. Hence, it is necessary
for you to attend first
class orientation so that
you may sign in and confirm your
seat in the course.
the only fair and equitable way I know to add
Students who do not attend the
mandatory orientation for my English 100 hybrid
sections will be dropped automatically.
In the meantime, if you have not done so, please
visit the appropriate course website at

and read through--in particular--the online
course syllabus (note
that you might find last semester's syllabus and
course outline until the week before classes begin). If you are not too
familiar with how the World Wide Web works or not
very computer literate, you'll need to make some
decisions about whether this is the right course for
you since all of my courses
involve being comfortable using digital media
