Once course registration is open to Dual Enrolled students, it is their responsibility to choose and register for the appropriate courses based on the approval of the High School.  If a course is listed as "closed" (full), students can continue to watch to see if seats become available or choose another course.  The Office of Admissions will be unable to contact instructors on a student's behalf.
