CBLG 90A is a multi-term course. If you enrol in CBLG 90A for the selected term, you will automatically be enrolled in CBLG 90B for the subsequent term. The automatic enrolment usually occurs near the completion of “A” term, and therefore the “B” term will not appear on your schedule of classes until that time.
