The electronic waitlist feature allows students from an established waitlist to be moved into a class when seats become available. It is a true first-come, first-serve system. Students trying to register for classes that are closed will be able to select a waitlist. During the weeks prior to the start of classes, when vacancies occur in classes, the first student(s) on the waitlist will be moved into the class and then receive an email confirming the enrollment.
Students should note that it is IMPORTANT when accepting a waitlist course to: Click on the down arrow "select W/L" then submit. If there are any other errors they will display at this time. Then return to the top of the page to click on "complete registration".
Helpful hints to assist students in using the features of waitlist:
- Students will not be charged the enrollment fees for waitlist classes until they are actually enrolled (moved) into the class.
- Students should check their registration/waitlist regularly to ensure that fees are paid within ten (10) days from the date they are moved into a course otherwise they risk being dropped from the class for non-payment.
- Students who have been placed on the waitlist MUST attend the first meeting of the class or they will be dropped from the waitlist.
- Courses for which students are waitlisted will appear on their schedules with a registration status of "WL". When the student is moved into the class, the registration status will change to "RE".
- Students will not be able to register for one section of a class and get on the waitlist for another section nor can they register for one class and get on the waitlist for another class that meets at the same time.
- Students may drop themselves from the waitlist at anytime.
- Waitlist classes will count toward the 19 total credits that students may enroll in each semester.
- The prerequisite, basic skills, time conflict, repeat, and holds will prevent students from getting rolled into a class from the waitlist. It will drop the student from the waitlist and class until the holds are resolved. If the student is a recent high school graduate, they must check with the Admissions Office to ensure that the high school hold has been released; otherwise they will be dropped from the waitlist and/or class. All high school students registered as "Dual Enrolled" will have a hold placed on their records and must register at the Admissions Office.
