How to Sign Up for the Spring 2022 Math 54 Adjunct Course

If you are interested in enrolling in the Spring 2022 Math 54 adjunct courses you must enroll in or be on the waiting list for the appropriate section of Math 54. Please fill out and submit a Sign-Up Form, linked below, to receive information for attending the first meeting of adjunct, which will be held on Zoom.

We require prospective students to attend the first meeting of adjunct, and also try out the adjunct for the first three weeks of the semester before formally enrolling, so students can evaluate whether the adjunct will be beneficial to them and whether they have the ability to engage fully with the course. If you cannot attend the first meeting, please contact your instructor by the day of the first meeting. Additional requirements and assignments for enrollment are detailed in the course syllabus, available below. We value students committed to working consistently at the pace that we set, a pace designed to ensure students keep up with the associated lecture course and engage in the learning process.
