Class Full? Get on the Waitlist

Do not wait until the first day of the semester to get into a class that is full. Put yourself of the waitlist via Self-Service and be first in line to fill a vacated spot.

Students on the waitlist will be notified if vacancies occur and they are registered into the class, and will receive an email. Make sure we have your correct email address on file with the college.

Some things to remember when waitlisting a class:

  • Self-Service checks for schedule conflicts for waitlisted courses; don’t waitlist for a class that meets at the same time or overlaps with a class for which you’re already registered.
  • Self-Service checks for completed prerequisites, don’t waitlist for a class unless you have submitted the proper paperwork. Visit the Prerequisite Form page for additional information. 
  • You can’t be added into a class from the waitlist if you’re already registered in another section of the same class.
  • You will not be able to add a class if doing so will put you over the unit limit for the semester. You may file a completed and approved Unit Overload, which requires the signature of a counselor. The Unit Overload and Add/Drop Card must be submitted to the Admissions and Records office to register.
  • Other blocks may prevent you from registering for a class. Any other blocks will be identified when you try to register. After any blocks have been identified and cleared you will be able to add the waitlisted class.
  • Beginning the first day of a class, the instructor controls who is registered from the waitlist.
