Wait List Procedure

When a class reaches its maximum enrollment and thus becomes closed, a Wait List is created for those students who would like to be added if and when openings occur. Notifications of openings are made throughout the year until shortly before the start of the term. At that point the wait lists are considered void and are removed from the registration system.

If space becomes available prior to the waitlist deadline:
  • you will receive an email confirmation indicating you have been added to a class from the waitlist.

If space does not become available prior to the waitlist deadline:

  • go to the class during its regularly scheduled time and check with the instructor to see if you can be added; if permission is granted, obtain the instructor's handwritten signed approval and present it at the Office of the Registrar no later than the end of the first week of the term so that Registrar personnel can add you to the class.


  • periodically check at the Office of the Registrar during the first week of the term to see if space has become available; if space has become available, Registrar personnel will complete the add process on the spot.  You can also check in Self-Service Banner and complete the add process online if space is available.
  • INST courses cannot be overloaded.  If you were waitlisted for an INST course and space did not become available, you will need to select another course.  The Integrative Studies site has a list of allowed substitutions.  Any requests for a waiver of this policy must be directed to the Chair of the Integrative Studies Program.
