The electronic waitlist feature replaces instructor-signed add slips and allows students from an established waitlist to be moved into a class when seats are available. It is a true first-come, first-serve system.
Students trying to register for classes that are closed will be able to select 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.
Students who are on a waitlist should check their registration regularly on the web.
They will have ten (10) days to pay for the class once they have moved into registered class. Students will not be charged enrollment fees for waitlist classes until they are actually enrolled in the class.
Students should use the waitlist to ensure themselves a chance of getting into the classes they want.
Students on waitlists must still attend the first meeting of the class or they may be dropped from the waitlist.
The prerequisite, basic skills, time conflict and repeat checks will prevent ineligible students from moving into the classes.
Students should drop themselves from a waitlist for any class that they no longer wish to take.
If a new section of a class is opened at the same day and time as a section with a waitlist, students on the waitlist will be automatically enrolled in the new section.
