After teaching marine biology, plankton biology, and general biology at California State University, Long Beach for 33 years, I retired to Petaluma. Since 2007, I've been teaching General Biology (BIO 10) at the Petaluma Campus of Santa Rosa Junior College and loving every minute of it!

  • My SP21 Bio 10 (Sec 7638) is now FULL, including one on the official A&R Waitlist. All of those people will be admitted (including the 1 on A&R waitlist). See below for more info on adding, but your best bet right now is to keep an eye on the BIO 10 listing in the online Schedule of Classes, and if it says "waitlist" or "open", indicating one or more spaces, then rush to enroll.
  • We can take a maximum of 27 students at this time. In the coming  weeks, some people will adjust their schedules and may drop Bio 10, so spaces may open up. Otherwise get on my personal wait list (see below, but I already have several on the my list)
  • I can add more to the class ONLY if enrolled students fail to show up on the first day. I cannot give out add codes until then. PLEASE let me know if you are on my waitlist but no longer need to enroll.

The following information pertains to those wishing to add the class:


1) If you are on the official A&R roster OR waitlist, you WILL be admitted to the class on the first day (you MUST attend first day!)


2) You can try to add the class on your own from time to time, in case people drop before the class begins. THIS OFTEN WORKS! Check the online class schedule to see if there is space, or just try to enroll.


3) I CANNOT give out add codes until the first day of class, Wed Jan 20, 2021, and then ONLY if enrolled students fail to show up.


4) However, if you would like to ADD the class, email me at cgalt@santarosa.edu and ask to be added to my personal wait list -- give me your name, best email, student ID (last four digits), and phone number. Also add something about your particular situation, need, status at SRJC (class level), major, etc.

5) Invariably, some people fail to show up on the first day, and I may be able to add 1-2 people from my personal waitlist, in the order that I receive your request. As of 12/11/20, I have 5 on my waitlist already and NO room unless enrolled students fail to show up.


6) Whether you are in the class or you want to add, you MUST attend the first class meeting on Jan 20, 12pm (we will also have our first lab session that day, 2:30-5:30pm). Since it is an online Zoom class, I will send a Zoom meeting link to those still on my personal waitlist. IF enrolled students fail to show up, I can add students in the order I have received their requests OR by other criteria I deem significant.

7) IF YOU WANT TO COME TO FIRST CLASS to ADD, you MUST EMAIL ME during the week before classes begin to re-confirm your interest.


8) Lab part of the class does meet the first week after our lecture, on Wednesday Jan 20 at 2:30pm on Zoom. 


9) If you have questions, please email me at cgalt@santarosa.edu

  • Our Canvas web page is not yet open; I will open it by mid-January, 2021.
  • Meanwhile, NOTE THIS: Our textbook is Campbell Essential Biology with Physiology (6th ed.) and it comes with a required access code for the textbook web site, MyLab and Mastering (Mastering Biology). IF you buy your textbook early, PLEASE wait until our Canvas site is open to register your access code for MyLab&Mastering!! DO NOT attempt to register your access code directly on the masteringbiology.com web site. You must do it from within our Canvas course site. More information in January.
  • Note, too, that if you buy your textbook online or used, it may not come with a valid access code. In that case you will have to buy one online (again, from within Canvas) for about $65. Take that into account for any purchase considerations.
