Waitlist Courses

Watch this short video to learn how to add waitlisted sections to your plan:  https://youtu.be/IoEYWX1fjVk

Courses that have reached their maximum allowed enrollment may be eligible to be waitlisted. Not all courses are waitlist eligible and it is the academic department’s decision on whether or not a course will have the waitlist option.

If a course is full and is currently in a waitlist status, it will indicate "Waitlisted" on the course section in Student Planning Course Catalog.

To add your name to the waitlist, first click Add Section to Schedule in the upper right corner of the section box.

A new box will open with detailed information for that particular section.

Click Add Section in the bottom right corner to add the course to your plan.

The waitlisted course will be added to your plan as a planned course. To officially be added to the waitlist, click on the Waitlist button in the course box.

Once added, the status will be officially waitlisted and a Drop Waitlist button will now appear on the waitlisted course. Use the Drop Waitlist button to remove yourself from that section’s waitlist.

Planned courses that are waitlisted will appear yellow with a red border in your planned term’s calendar.

If a seat opens on a waitlisted course and you are the next eligible person on the waitlist, you will receive an email sent to your TWU email address. You will have 24 hours to go into Student Planning and register for the now-available waitlisted course.

When a waitlisted course becomes open and you are eligible to register for it, the Drop Waitlist button will change to says Register.

Click on the Register button to enroll into the previously waitlisted course.

The previously waitlisted course will now show as registered.
