How to Get on the Waitlist for a Course

Description: The automated waitlist process provides students the opportunity to enroll in closed sections of a course as space becomes available.

When a space becomes available, a waitlisted student will receive an email notification through their email that a seat is available and that the student is now eligible to register for the course within an indicated time-frame. If the student DOES NOT register within the specified date and time, the available seat goes to the next person on the waitlist.
