Waitlisting Tutorial
What is Waitlisting?
Waitlisting is a Web self-service feature that provides students the ability to sign
up on a list to wait for an open seat in a class that is full.
Waitlisting will be available to students until 10 p.m. on the evening prior to the
start of the semester.
Waitlisting provides many advantages to students, instructors and administrators:
 Convenient for students by sending an email notification when a seat becomes
available and registration can be done online. Seats will be offered on a firstcome, first-served basis.
 Helpful to instructors by eliminating the need to manually sign students into a
full class before the first day of class.
 Useful for administrators by allowing them to track the demand for certain
courses and better manage curriculum offerings.
Waitlisting Overview
 Students who attempt to register for a class that is full may put themselves on a
waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis, if the course offers that option. Not
all courses will offer this option.
 When an open seat becomes available, an email will be sent to the rocket email
address of the next student on the waiting list.
 The student will have 24 hours from the time the email is sent to go online and
add the class. During this 24-hour time period, the student can add and drop
the waitlisted class by selecting the Add or Drop Classes link in the portal.
 After the 24 hours has expired, if the student did not register for the waitlisted
class, the next student on the waiting list will be notified and have 24 hours to
add the course.
 Registration Holds will prevent the student from adding a waitlisted class, even
if the student receives the notification email.

Waitlisting Additional Details
When you receive a waitlist email notifying you that you can now add the
waitlisted class, there are specific steps you must take:
Verify that you have no registration holds on your student account that would
prevent you from registering.
Are you already registered for the same class but a different section? If so, you
need to drop the section you are in so the waitlisted section can be added.
Register for the waitlisted section before the deadline given in the email
notification. If you fail to take action, you will automatically be removed from
the waitlist.
Are you waitlisted for other sections or courses that you no longer want?
PLEASE drop any unwanted waitlisted courses so other students can move up
on the waitlist.
