FAQ'S

How Do I Wait-list a Class?

During Registration Week and Open Registration, students may wait-list up to two closed courses. (The wait-list is not available during Freshmen Registration nor during the Add Period.)  To add yourself to a wait-list you must check the wait-list ok box as you are adding the course to your shopping cart. If you find a class has closed after you added to your shopping cart, re-select the course from your cart and check the wait-list ok box.

Students can use the Manage My Wait-list function to automatically be dropped from a registered class  if space becomes available in the wait-listed class.  To set up your preference, choose the "Manage My Wait-list" tab in your Student Center and follow the instructions on the page. Please note that setting a preference for the wait-listed course does not guarantee that you will get a spot in the class.   You should use the Manage My Wait-list feature if:

  • The wait-listed course will place your schedule in an overload (you may have up to 4.25 academic units plus .50 activity units at no additional tuition cost).
  • You are already registered for a different section of the same course.
  • There is a time conflict with the course you are registered for and the course you are wait-listing.

Once wait-listed, be alert for messages sent to wait-listed students. For a student to be registered from the wait-list, there can be no schedule conflict with the wait-listed course and students may not already be registered for another section of the same course.
