Once a course section has closed, a waitlist will be created for the section. When you try to register for a class that is closed, you’ll have the option to join the waitlist if you have the pre-requisites and do not have a time conflict. If a seat in the waitlisted class opens and you are eligible, the system will add the section to your schedule and send you a message. Joining a waitlist does not result in billing until you are added to the section. If you decide that you no longer want the section, but have joined the waitlist, you must drop from the waitlist. Joining a waitlist does not guarantee you a seat in the section. You should actively watch for open seats that may meet your needs. Depending on waitlist activity, we may add seats or whole sections.
If we are unable to accommodate waitlist requests for a section, we may cancel your waitlist registration and tell you to find alternative options. If you are not successful in adding the waitlisted class, you should look for an alternative course or speak with your faculty advisor to find additional options. Your faculty advisor may choose to assist by contacting the department chair when the waitlisted class is critical to final graduation requirements or progress in the major. The department chair is unlikely to honor a request for a seat when there are open sections of the same class. If you join a waitlist, you must be sure to check your Spartan email regularly for information about your waitlist status.
