During registration, students who are on a waitlist will NOW be notified via their School student e-mail when a vacated spot in the class occurs.

Note: That you can find out if you have permission to add the class by checking your student E-mail and/or your class schedule.

Q: If I am on the waitlist for an online class, how do I add it?

A: You must click the "Electronic Add Card Request (For Online Classes)" link, under "Registration" and fill out the online form and submit.
