Waitlist a Class

Ready to waitlist?

If you’ve found a class you’d like to waitlist, here’s what you need to do.

  1. Follow the instructions for registering. To see classes that are already full, make sure you unselect the “Show Open Classes Only” option.
  2. Check the “Waitlist?” box. If you plan to drop a class if you get into the waitlisted class, enter that class number in the “Drop if Enrolled” field.
  3. Choose Enroll.

If your request to join the waitlist is successful, you’ll be told your position on the waitlist. If there’s a problem, you’ll see an error message that explains why you cannot join the waitlist.

After you waitlist

If you change your mind, you can cancel your waitlist request. You must cancel your waitlist request, or you may be enrolled in the class automatically. If you decide to drop a class after the waitlist places you in it, find out if you’ll be able to get a tuition refund.

Waitlist requests do expire. Check the official calendar to find this semester’s waitlist expiration date. Once the waitlist period ends, your request will remain on your schedule, but be inactive.
