waitlist feature allows students from an established waitlist to be moved into
a class when seats become available. It is a true first-come, first-serve
system. Students trying to register for classes that are closed will be able to
select a waitlist. During the weeks prior to the start of classes, when
vacancies occur in classes, the first student(s) on the waitlist will be moved
into the class and then receive an email confirming the enrollment.

Helpful hints to assist
students in using the features of waitlist:
- Students will not be
charged the enrollment fees for waitlist classes until they are actually
enrolled (moved) into the class.
- Students should check
their registration/waitlist regularly to ensure that fees are paid within ten
(10) days from the date they are moved into a course otherwise they risk being
dropped from the class for non-payment.
- Students who have
been placed on the waitlist MUST attend the first meeting of the class or they
will be dropped from the waitlist.
- Courses for which
students are waitlisted will appear on their schedules with a registration
status of "WL". When the student is moved into the class, the
registration status will change to "RE".
- Students will not be
able to register for one section of a class and get on the waitlist for another
section nor can they register for one class and get on the waitlist for another
class that meets at the same time.
- Students may drop
themselves from the waitlist at anytime.
- Waitlist classes will
count toward the 19 total credits that students may enroll in each semester.
- The prerequisite,
basic skills, time conflict, repeat, and holds will prevent students from
getting rolled into a class from the waitlist. It will drop the student from
the waitlist and class until the holds are resolved. If the student is a recent
high school graduate, they must check with the Admissions Office to ensure
that the high school hold has been released; otherwise they will be dropped
from the waitlist and/or class. All high school students registered as
"Dual Enrolled" will have a hold placed on their records and
must register at the Admissions Office.
