Instructions for Waitlisting

What is waitlisting?

Waitlisting is a new function that academic departments may employ that allows students to add to a waitlist for a course that is closed.  Once a student has waitlisted for a course section, he or she will receive notification via email if a seat becomes available in that section.  Waitlisted students are notified on a “first-come-first-serve” basis, and once the notification is received, he or she will have a specified window of time to register for the course.  The email notification will specify your window of time. Students will have 12 hours to register for the course section after notification. Waitlisting is not registration or enrollment in the courses.

Departments that are currently using the waitlist function for one or more course sections:

  1. Biology
  2. Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering
  3. Chemistry
  4. Economics
  5. Mathematics

More departments may decide to use the functionality. For real time information, please utilize the schedule of classes search described below.
