EMCC has recently instituted a "no late enrollment" policy, due to the understanding that "learning starts on Day One" and the idea that students who enroll after the first day of class generally are not as prepared, and therefore not as successful as their peers who were in the class from the beginning. However, does this phenomenon reach back even further in time? Do students who enroll early in a class do better than those that enroll at the last minute (even though they did enroll before the first day)? Anecdotally, it seems that students who are organized and prepared and enroll early do better than those who enroll at the last minute. In this study I am looking at the success of students who enrolled in BIO181, BIO201 and CHM130 sections that were added to the Fall 2016 schedule at the last minute in comparison to the sucess of students who were in the same class with the same instructor, but in a section that had been accepting enrollment for months.
