Online Course Wait List System Coming
Beginning with priority registration in October, students will be able to use a new online wait list system for closed course sections.
When students register for the Spring 2008 semester during priority registration (October 26-November 23) and encounter closed course sections, a new online function will allow some students to add themselves to a wait list for a closed section of many 100-500 level courses. Ten percent of the maximum number of seats for a section will be the number of spaces on the wait list. For example if there are 50 seats in a section, then 5 seats will be available on a wait list. Students must meet all prerequisites for a course in order to add themselves to the wait list. Departments will be able to determine whether the computer system will move students automatically from the wait list into the class when a seat becomes available or whether the department will manage the wait list.
You may have many questions about the details of how this system will work. More thorough explanations and instructions will be provided as the time for priority registration nears.
