小草影院 Automated Waitlisting Process

Resources for Students

This new process will allow students to add their names to the waitlist for approved courses through the same screen they use to add/drop courses for the term.聽 THIS WILL HAVE TO BE DONE BY EITHER THE ADD/DROP CLASSES SELECTION IN THE REGISTRATION MENU OF MY小草影院 STUDENT SELF SERVICE OR BY “ADDING TO THE WORKSHEET” WHEN SEARCHING CLASSES.聽 The process itself is easy, when trying to register for a class with a waitlist but no available seats students will receive a registration error message.聽 That message will tell聽the student聽if there are waitlist seats available, and if so聽the student聽will simply need to select Waitlisted from the drop down menu next to the course and submit聽their changes.聽 The course will then appear on their my小草影院 schedule as Waitlisted.

Here are聽some important facts you need to know鈥

  1. Students on the waitlist will be notified through their 小草影院 Cub e-mail account when a seat is made available.聽 That e-mail will contain a deadline, in most cases 24 hours, by which the student will be required to log back into my小草影院 and change their status in the course from Waitlisted to Web registered.
  2. During the grace registration聽period the seat allocated to the first position on the waitlist will only be available for the student who holds that spot.聽 No other students will be able to register for that seat in that course until the deadline is over.聽 This will mean that classes that appear to have available seats could actually be full pending waitlist processing.聽 If a student attempts to register for a course with pending waitlist students but open seats they will receive a registration error message explaining that the course is open but pending waitlist.
  3. If聽the student聽does not switch to Web registered within the deadline聽they will lose their place on the list and will have to start over for that course.聽聽It is the students responsibility to check聽their 小草影院 e-mail every day when on a waitlist.聽聽There will be聽NO exceptions聽if聽a student聽is dropped from the list because of the deadline, and聽NO additional or alternative attempts to contact聽the student聽should be expected.
  4. Being waitlisted is not a guarantee or promise that you will聽receive a seat in the course.
  5. Departments reserve the right to administratively adjust registrations in keeping with appropriate and necessary academic practices.
  6. A variety of registration errors that would prevent registration in a course, such as pre-requisites, campus restrictions, and class restrictions, will likewise prevent a student from being put on the waitlist.聽 However, duplicate courses and time conflicts will聽NOT prevent a student from putting their name on the list.聽 Be aware that if there is a duplicate or conflicting course on聽the schedule it will have to be dropped before聽the student聽will be able to change from waitlisted to web registered.聽 If a student has been granted an exception to a pre-requisite restriction the managing department may be able to establish a waiver for that student in that term that would allow them to fully participate in the Waitlist.聽 For more information on that please check with the Academic Department of the needed class.
  7. Two weeks before the first day of classes the ability to add to a waitlist will be turned off.聽 This should alleviate an overflow of last minute waitlisters and hopefully allow as many lists as possible to clear into the courses.

We hope that this new process will help provide the student with a more functional means of managing their schedules while minimizing the opportunity for manual errors or oversights
