Overview of the waitlist procedures and how to register for a waitlisted course
When a class section is full, some sections offer the opportunity to be added to a waitlist at the instructor's discretion. This means that when an enrolled student drops a section, the open seat is made available to the first person in the waitlist queue. If you're selected from the waitlist, you'll receive an email in your student account letting you know you can register for the course. You'll have about 24 hours to log in to WebAdvisor and register for the course before the next student in the waitlist queue is notified.
If you add yourself to a waitlist, check your student email frequently so you do not miss the registration window.
The College also uses this information to decide whether to add another section of this class. If enough students end up on the waitlist and another classroom and instructor are available, the department may add another section.
Registering for a Waitlisted Course
When you receive the email notification saying that a spot has opened for you, log in to your WebAdvisor account. After logging in, click on "Curriculum Students," then click "Manage My Waitlist" under "Curriculum Registration." Follow this link to see the courses you waitlisted for. Select "register" from the drop-down menu to the left of the class, and then click "Submit."
