Use the Waitlist to Get the Class You Want

If the class you want is full, you may be able to add your name to a waitlist. Names are added on a first-come, first-served basis.

If a Seat Becomes Available

You will be notified by ACCmail if a class has an opening. You then have until 11:59 p.m. of the expiration date to register for the class. At 12 midnight,  you are removed from the waitlist.

IMPORTANT: You will not be automatically added to the class — you must accept the seat by registering. Check your ACCmail account regularly to avoid missing the opportunity.

Help! I can't register for my waitlist class!

See the chart below for reasons you may be unable to register.

Reason Solution

Expired deadline Once you are notified a seat is available, you have until 11:59 p.m. of the expiration date to register for the class. If you do not act within that time frame, you are removed from the waitlist and will not be able to register for the class.
Student hold Clear any student holds.
System downtime Check registration system downtimes.

Can I see my ranking on the waitlist?

What if I don't get a seat in the class?

A waitlist does not guarantee you will be able to enroll in a class. If you cannot enroll by the end of open registration, you can attempt to add the class during the schedule change period. You also can take the class in a future semester.
