Are you on a Waitlist?

Waitlist Information

When a course section that you would like to register for is closed, you can place yourself on the waitlist as long as you have satisfied any prerequisites. However, please note that the registration system does not permit you to be registered for a class section and to also be on a waitlist of the same course that meets at a different time. Choose your selections carefully. When you are placed on a waitlist, it means that the course section you have chosen has reached its seat capacity, and that you are waiting to register for the event that any seats become available or the instructor allows for additional students. You are not guaranteed a seat in the class when you are on a waitlist. The process is not automatic. If a seat becomes available during registration, waitlisted students will be notified via college issued student email. Once students receive their email, they will have 5 days to register for the class. Students who do not register within 5 days will be dropped from the waitlist. You are not charged for a class until you have added it using PiratesNet. You are only permitted to be on one waitlist at a time in any given subject (i.e. one English 101 section, or one Math 90 section, etc).

What to do if you're on a waitlist
  1. If you did not receive a permission email to add the class, you MUST attend the first class meeting to get an access code from the instructor.
  2. Tell the instructor that you are on the wait list for the course and that you would like an access code.
  3. If your request is granted, the instructor will give you an access code.
  4. Check to make sure that the instructor has provided you with the correct access code for the section. The system will not allow you to register without this information.
  5. Using PiratesNet, you may then add the course. PiratesNet will prompt you to provide the special access code (add code).
  6. Keep the access code for your records.

* If you are on a waitlist and decide not to add the class, drop yourself from the waitlist.

What to do if you're waitlisted for an online course
  1. On the first day of the semester, submit an Electronic Add Card through PiratesNet . Select  "Current Students", Log-in, and select "E-Add Card Request (Online Courses)" under the registration category.
  2. When you've submitted the card, the instructor will e-mail you to notify you if you have been accepted into the course. Then add the course through PiratesNet to officially register for the class. 

Please note: If you put your name on a waitlist while the prerequisite class is in progress, and after that time, you earned a D, F, or No Pass, you will not be permitted to add the class.
