Waitlists are created for courses that fill up
during the direct enrollment period. Students may sign up for waitlists using
an online form that will be made available 1 to 3 days after direct enrollment
The list of courses that will be available for
waitlist will be announced after the direct enrollment period.
The waitlist is time sensitive. You will be placed
on the waitlist in order by time stamp based on when you submit the form.
The waitlist will remain open for one week.
No one will be added to the waitlist before it opens or after it closes. The
waitlist will not open again once it is closed, so it is very important for you
to carefully consider your options.
If/when all students from a waitlist have been
accommodated for a class, then any additional seats that open will be made
available in OPUS during drop/add.
If you decide later that you are interested in a
class for which you are not registered and did not sign up on the waitlist, you
will need to watch OPUS to see if any space opens up during the drop/add
You will need to enter the following information
to complete the waitlist form:

If a space becomes available for you, the
registrar’s office will enroll you in the class and send you a notification
that you have been added. You will be added to the class even if you have a
schedule conflict with another course. It will be your responsibility to
resolve any conflict and/or make any schedule adjustments necessary before the
drop/add period closes. If you do not resolve conflicts prior to the drop/add
deadline, then the registrar’s office will be forced to resolve them for you
without knowing your preference.
Please keep in mind that movement from the waitlist
does not happen automatically. Class enrollment is reviewed weekly by the
registrar’s office, and changes could be processed through the first week of
