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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 email account.
