Wait List Procedure

Students should register for the full load of 16 units. Students who are wait listed for courses should attend the first class session. If someone drops the class, then the first person on the wait list will be contacted. If the first person on the wait list still wants in the class, they drop the class they plan to replace it with and email when completed. They will then be added to the wait listed class. This process continues daily and as spaces become available until the last day of add/drop. A professor may, at his/her discretion, choose to add a student to a particular class outside of usual wait list procedures. In this case, the professor must submit an email providing details and student name or sign an add/drop form which the wait listed student will submit to the Office of the Dean.
