Fall Enrollment - A Note From Dr. Whitman

Hi CSL Students:

I hope you are enjoying the summer and getting ready for the fall quarter to start. As you think of returning for fall classes, please be aware that those of you who have not yet registered for classes should do so right away.  Without more enrollment, courses may be cancelled.  

Specifically, if you have not yet registered for CSL 467, Counseling Theories, please be advised that enrollment at this time is low, which puts the course in jeopardy of being cancelled. If more students do not register for it (at least six more students), the course will be cancelled. A decision about course cancellation will be happening in the next two weeks. Please speak with an advisor if you need help in deciding about your courses.

Best, Dr. Whitman
