Procedure for Getting on a Waitlist

  1. Find the CRN of the class for which you wish to be waitlisted.
  2. If the class is not closed, you cannot be added to the waitlist.
  3. Go to the "Add or Drop Classes" option on the Registration Tools channel on UCONNECT.
  4. Enter the CRN in one of the boxes and click on Submit.
  5. If the error message CLOSED- xxx WAITLISTED appears, then click on the drop down arrow beside the message, and click on "Wait List".  
  6. Click on Submit Changes, and you'll be added to the waitlist.
  7. If the error message says CLOSED- WAITLIST FILLED, then you must choose another course.
  8. If you receive the message "OPEN - xxx WAITLISTED", then you can add yourself to the waitlist.   This message means a seat has opened up but is being held for the next eligible student on the current waitlist.

Please note:  All holds must be cleared and prerequisites met, and other registration restriction must be met before entering a waitlist.

 

Courses Which Have Corequisites

Students enrolling in courses which have a corequisite, e.g. separate Biology lecture and lab courses, or Chemistry lecture and lab courses, must  enroll in both CRNs at the same time, for the computer to recognize the corequisite. Therefore, students may not enroll in a lecture, but only waitlist for the lab.   In order to waitlist a corequisite course, the student must first be fully enrolled in the pair of CRNs, to meet the corequisite requirements, THEN waitlist the desired CRN.

  3. Go to the Add or Drop Classes option on the Registration Tools channel on UCONNECT.
  4.  If you are currently enrolled in another CRN of the same class, you must first drop the other CRN before switching to the newly available CRN.

  6. Select "Web Registered", and click on Submit Changes.
