How do I add myself to the waitlist of a closed course section?

Modified on Mon, Jun 27, 2022 at 11:59 AM

Sometimes while registering for courses in Self-Service, you'll find that your desired course section is full. If a course section is full, you can still add it to your schedule by selecting "Add Section", just as you would when registering for any other course. After adding this section, you will find it in the list of courses and sections to the left of your schedule. If a waitlist is offered for that course, instead of a "Register" button, you'll find an "Add to Waitlist" button under the planned section:

You can waitlist a course section even if a date/time conflict exists with a course for which you are currently registered. Once you are on the waitlist for a course section, the "Add to Waitlist" button will become a "Drop from Waitlist" button so that you can remove yourself from the waitlist if you choose.
