The first ten registered will be given priority and we will take a waiting list. All registered and those on waiting list must come on Saturday, September 4th to pass prerequisites. Those on waiting list who pass prerequisites will be placed in class if some who registered do not. We are using this format since so many have not passed prerequisites when we have offered previous classes.
