Occasionally, students will be unable to register in a class because it is filled to capacity. Seats may open up, however, if registered students drop the class during the registration period. Through an automated waitlisting system, the first person to make a waitlist request for a class is placed at the top of the list. When a seat opens up, as long as there are no other restrictions or conflicts, that person is registered automatically for the course. At that time, an email message is sent from the Office of the Registrar to the student's University email account.  For more information, check the Registrar website
