Enrollment from a waitlist automatically occurs if enough students drop the course so that the waitlisted student can be added, or if the student is
waitlisted for a communication course in their final quarter and has no
other open course options to complete the requirement.
Students should not assume that placing themselves on waitlist is an indication that they will be enrolled in the course. Students should not attend a course for which they are waitlisted or email professors to be added to a waitlisted course.
If a student finds that a course that they need to graduate is waitlisted, they must first add themselves to the waitlist and then email their academic advisor and request addition to the waitlisted course before the deadline to add for that quarter. The advisor will verify that the course is required for graduation in that term and that there are no other sections of that course open. If those conditions are met, the student will be added to a section of the course within the deadline to add classes for the quarter.
Students must be sure to set up the waitlisted course as a SWAP if the waitlisted course is another section of a course they already have on their schedule, they will be over the 20 credit hour enrollment limit, or there is a time conflict with another course on their schedule. If any of these
conditions exist and the course is not set up as a SWAP, the waitlist
will bypass and move on to the next student on the waitlist.
