The waitlist prioritizes the enrollment of students in a class section after the section has reached maximum capacity. Being on a waitlist does not guarantee you a seat in the class. It is always best to enroll in a class with open seats when possible.
Log in to Pipeline and go to Registration. On the Add/Drop Classes page, input the CRN (Course Reference Number) of the class you wish to register for and click on "submit changes." You will receive an "error" message letting you know that the class section is full or has reached maximum capacity. If the waitlist is open, there will be a drop-down menu/action box next to the course.. Select "Add to waitlist" from the drop down menu and be sure to hit submit! Check your schedule of classes to ensure that the waitlisted classes is appropriately listed.
YES! New for spring 2023 registration, students officially waitlisted for a class will automatically be registered in that class when a seat becomes available. You will be registered in the specific section for which you are waitlisted. Once you are registered in the class, you will be notified via your Pipeline email confirming your registration and payment requirements and deadlines. Please note, you will NOT be automatically registered in the course if you do not meet the stated prerequisite for the course or if you have exceeded the maximum allowable units for the term.
CHECK YOUR PIPELINE EMAIL REGULARLY and your schedule of classes! You will be notified via your Pipeline email that you have cleared the waitlist and are registered in the class. You will also be sent relevant payment information and deadlines.
No. All registration rules are enforced for waitlists.
The majority of classes do have waitlists, however, there are some exceptions. Search for an open seat in another CRN of the course. You may also attend the first day of the class to see if the instructor is able to accept adds. If yes, the instructor will provide you with an Add Authorization Code to officially add the class.
Go to the Register, Add, Drop Classes page under the "Student" tab in Pipeline. In the action box, select the drop status to remove yourself from the waitlist. Submit your changes.
Login to your Pipeline. Go to Registration. Select “Student Detail Schedule” for the semester. View your position on the waitlist.
The waitlist is actively managing the enrollment in that class and students will automatically be enrolled from the waitlist when seats become available.
If you still wish to add the class, you must go to the first class meeting. The waitlist will be used to prioritize the distribution of add authorization codes on the first day of class only.
Online class? Send an email to the instructor on the first day of class indicating that you are on the waitlist and still wish to add the class.
In either case, if the instructor is able to accept adds and approves your request, you will be provided with an Add Authorization Code to officially add the class.
The waitlists are inactive on the first day of class. Faculty will use the waitlist roster to prioritize the distribution of add authorization codes on the first day of class only. Be sure to attend (or if the class is online, email) on the first day! The waitlists will be purged on the last day to add for the course. Remember, being on a waitlist does NOT guarantee you a seat in the class.
