An automated waitlist is available with the beginning of priority registration and continues to be available throughout registration for courses that are full. Academic units set a waitlist capacity for selected courses. The greater majority of (but not all) courses have a waitlist.
Once classes begin for the semester, we stop the ability for a student to add themselves to a waitlist -- the philosophy being that students should make contact with the faculty member teaching the class to inquire about missed assignments and space availability.
For those students who are ON a waitlist; we continue to run the waitlist process through the eighth calendar day of the semester.
1. To add yourself to the waitlist of a closed course select the course as normal, but make sure to click the 'Wait list if class is full' checkbox shown below:
2. Continue with your registration. Once you submit your enrollment request you will be shown a result page which will indicate successes and failures. The waitlisted course will display as a success, but will contain the message shown below indicating your waitlist position:
3. When viewing your class schedule, you will also see your status of "waiting" and in what position you are on the waitlist.
IMPORTANT: When a student is enrolled from the
wait list into the course an email notification is sent to the student's UWGB
