Once you place yourself on a waitlist, it is your responsibility to monitor your waitlist status in My Class Schedule.
If you decide not to take a course you have waitlisted, you must drop the waitlist request to ensure you are not placed in the class. If you’re placed in the class before you have a chance to remove yourself from the waitlist, you’ll need to drop the class.
Once waitlist processing has ended, your request will automatically expire if you have not been added to the class. If you still wish to try to add the class after your request expires, follow the procedures for adding a class.
Find out when waitlist requests expire
If you want to enroll in a course while you wait to see if you’ll make it into another one, you can choose the drop if enrolled option. This lets you identify a course you’ve scheduled to be automatically dropped if your waitlist request is satisfied. (Note that a waitlist request cannot be used as a drop if enrolled for another waitlist request.)
If you haven’t selected a class to drop if your waitlist request is fulfilled, you can use the change waitlist drop option in the Student Center to update your waitlist request without losing your waitlist position.
If you’re still on the waitlist on the first day of classes, you’ll need to decide whether or not to drop your waitlist request and stay in the class you’re registered for. If your waitlist request isn’t filled by the end of waitlist processing, you’ll remain in your registered class for the term—so be sure to attend that class while you wait. If your schedule permits, you should also attend the class you’ve waitlisted.
