Waitlist Instructions


What is Waitlisting?

Waitlisting is a new function that academic departments may employ that allows students to add to a waitlist for a course that is full and/or closed.  Once a student has waitlisted for a course section, he or she will receive notification via e-mail if a seat becomes available in that section.  Waitlisted students are notified on a "first-come-first-serve" basis, and once the notification is received, he or she will have 24 hours to register for the course.  If he or she fails to register for the course within 24 hours, he or she will no longer be eligible to register. Waitlisting is not registration or enrollment in the courses.
