How to Enroll onto a Waitlist

What NOT to do - if you are “looking up” the class, the option to waitlist does not appear.

WHAT to do - directly enter the CRN for the course. You will then get a drop down box with a waitlist notification.

NOW – be sure that to click on the drop down box and click submit to actually be waitlisted. After clicking submit, you will get a confirmation page that you are waitlisted and it will appear in your class listing. The initial viewing of “waitlist” does not mean you are waitlisted. You have to follow through with the submit and confirmation.

One last hint - if a course is cross-listed, a waitlist may be offered, by both departments or only the sponsoring department. If the option is not available for the section you are trying to enroll into, go to the sponsoring department where the cross-list is most likely sitting.

How the Waitlist works - as students drop from the course, the first student on the waitlist will receive an e-mail through their UW account and will have 24 hours to respond and complete the enrollment process. If the individual does not respond, or does not complete the enrollment process, the next student on the list will be contacted and provided with the same e-mail and 24 hours to respond. Further information is available through the Registrar's Office at:
