Once a course is full, students can register to be on the waitlist: a standby line that fills openings when they become available. Your position in the waitlist is determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Waitlisting is available anytime for most courses until the second week of class begins.
How to Waitlist
If the class you want to register is full, and it uses the waitlisting feature, you will see an option to join the waitlist. If the course has an opening, an email is sent to the student first in the waitlist line. That student is given 24 hours to add the class online. Once the first week of classes starts, the time a waitlist student has to add a class is shortened to 12 hours. You can view your position in the waitlist through your student schedule in Banner.
Check Your Spot on the Waitlist
To see where you are on the waitlist, log into Banner and click Register for Classes. At the bottom there is a tab labeled Schedule Details that will show courses for which you are registered and waitlisted. Clicking the arrow next to the course name will display your Waitlist Position. See this screenshot for help.
Waitlisting Does Not:
- Check for time conflicts on your schedule
- Check for registration holds
- Give upper classmen priority over underclassmen
- Work with corequisite or linked courses
