How CLAS Students Enroll in this course

January 21st, 2010

1. They stop by Thornton A122 to get the Undergraduate Request to take graduate courses
2. They get you to sign it.
3. They get the associate dean in Thornton A108 to sign it.
4. If they already need another instructor from CLAS to sign a 6000 form from Monroe Hall, then they need to staple the two forms together (which is true of the majority of the CLAS undergraduates in your class).
5. They take it to Mary Stegmaier in Cabell 437 to sign it.

Our class

December 10th, 2009

Our class  meets on Tue and Thu at 12.30-1.45 in MEC 216. The course will focus on fundamental topics in cryptography; students should be comfortable with reading and writing mathematical proofs.  If you are interested in taking the course but SIS does not let you register, please email me.  I am happy to sign course action forms, etc.  I am looking forward to a great semester.
