If a course that you would like to take is waitlisted you can add yourself to the course waitlist. Start by choosing the correct section.

Click on "View Other Sections" and choose the desired section.

The course now appears in yellow with a thin red border and the column on the left now indicates that you are on the waitlist and says “Drop Waitlist.”

If a space opens up in the waitlisted class you will be notified through your student email and will have access to register for the course. If you do not register within 48 hours of receiving the email you will be dropped and the seat will be offered to the next student on the list.

If you no longer wish to be waitlisted for a course please drop the course so that other students may move up the list. This can be done by finding the course on the schedule tab and selecting “Drop Waitlist” in the left hand column.

Dropping from the waitlist will not remove the course from your calendar or from your planned course list. To remove the course from your calendar click the small X found on the section.

To remove a course entirely from your planned course list, and subsequently your timeline, click the X in the gray section of the course in the left hand column.
