You really want that course—and so does everyone else
Interested in registering for a class, but all the seats are filled? You can join the waitlist. If a seat later becomes available, the waitlist system will attempt to place a student into that open seat. The first student on the waitlist who meets the eligibility requirements will be placed into the class.
Note that your enrollment status is based on the number of credit hours for which you’re registered—waitlist hours don’t count. If you need to maintain a certain enrollment level, register for a schedule that will work for you and use the drop if enrolled option.
You won’t be able to waitlist a course that requires class or school authorization until the department has granted you permission. Make sure to request permission as soon as possible—ideally before your authorized registration time.
