Frequently Asked Questions

Where is my class?

Classroom assignments are usually posted online a few days before classes begin. For the most up-to-date information, check your classroom assignment the day before or the day of classes

Does this course count for my Learning Domain?

It depends. Courses in Islamic World Studies count in a variety of the Learning Domains. Always consult an Academic Advisor about which courses count for which learning domains. 

I'm on the waitlist, can I get into this class?

The waitlist serves as a way to order students that wish to enroll in a course that has already reached capacity. If a student currently enrolled in the course chooses to drop the course, the first student on the waitlist would then automatically be enrolled in the course (up until the Last Add Day of a given Quarter). Depending on your spot on the waitlist, you may organically be enrolled in the course due to other students dropping the course. Unfortunately, we cannot jump students at the bottom of the waitlist up to the top. This would be unfair for those students ahead on the waitlist

My professor asked us to turn in a paper to her mailbox. Where is that?

The mailboxes for faculty in the Islamic World Studies Program are located at 2333 N Racine Ave. It is on the west side of the Lincoln Park Campus, across the street from the Theater School Building. Our office is open from 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday.
