Office of the Registrar Waitlisting Tutorial F O R S T U D E N TS 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.

When you receive a waitlist notification, register for the course within the 24 hour window or drop the course so another student can have the seat. Please be courteous to other students and do not remain on the waitlist of a course you have decided not to take.
