There are no waiting lists at either college.  For Philosophy 2 at Pierce there will be a lottery at the beginning of the first class to replace any students who are absent. 

For Philosophy 33  at Mission interested students need to email a request to mcferrdd@laccd.edu between 8 AM and noon on September 2.  You should have the following information on your request: your name, student ID, date of birth, and the email on file with LACCD.  I will honor the requests in the order received for whatever openings are available.
