Regular Semester Sections: This subject is limited to 18 for pedagogical reasons. Priority will be given to pre-registered students, including pre-registered undergraduates who were cut from the same class the previous semester due to the enrollment cap. In case of over enrollment, preference is given to pre-registered students of 21G.076J, followed by freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who have the time to continue to higher levels of French. Next would be seniors and then graduate students.  To receive priority, pre-registered students must attend the first day of class. If you wish to be enrolled in the course, it is imperative that you attend the first day and following days of the course. If you need to be in a different-level course because of your language skills, your presence on the first days will be communicated to the instructor of that course.
