Passage of Prop. 30 allows more seats for Spring semester at Cypress College

The following information was originally published in @Cypress (pdf), the online newsletter of Cypress College. Permission to republish was granted by Marc S. Posner.

Registration for Spring 2013 began this week — and, after four days of activity — demand for Cypress College classes remains high.

According to the Office of Institutional Research and Planning, the overall fill rate is at the 45% mark.

No single section was full following completion of priority registration on Monday. Sections began filling on Tuesday, however, and the first of the courses (all sections of a single course) — in biology — became full that same day. By Thursday afternoon, there were already 1,166 waitlist requests.

The pattern is in line with recent semesters, even though there are approximately 1,000 additional seats available for the spring term. The semester begins the week of February 4, 2013.

As a result of the passage of Proposition 30, 1,000 extra seats were added for spring. The courses listed in the linked PDF file were added for spring 2013 subsequent to printing of the schedule. Also, space in 11 previously scheduled courses has been substantially expanded to accommodate more students.

The augmentation illustrates Cypress College’s commitment to using the Prop. 30 funding to directly support students’ education. In addition to these courses, Cypress College will be holding a summer term in 2013.
