Understanding Your Class Waitlists

The waitlist allows students the opportunity to potentially enroll in sections which have reached their enrollment capacity.

    • How Students Get on Waitlists
      • The student gets placed on the waitlist at the time he/she attempts to enroll in a course section that is full, by checking the "OK to Wait List" checkbox that displays
      •  The class schedule will display “Waitlist” status/student’s position on waitlist
      •  If the waitlist is full, "OK to Wait List" checkbox will not appear
      • The wait list process runs nightly from early registration to the end of the second day of classes 
      • Students on a wait list will be enrolled on a first-on/first-off basis.
      • If space is available, the first student will automatically be enrolled overnight and  receive an e-mail to their CWU email address notifying them of the change. 
    • Other Waitlist Facts
      • Student eligibility/course registration eligibility rules, such as prerequisites, time conflicts, etc., are always enforced.
      • Students can waitlist multiple sections of the same course, but once the student is enrolled into an available section, they will automatically be dropped from waitlists for the other sections. Exception:  for courses that are repeatable for credit in the same term.
      • If a lecture course has a zero credit lab, students cannot wait list the same lecture section or the same lab section more than once. Example: A student may not wait list BIOL 181-01 lecture with more than one BIOL 181 lab section.
      • Students must be enrolled or wait listed in both lecture and lab sections if they are required.
      • Faculty may override a waitlist at any time and enroll the student with a change of schedule form.
