Once classes begin, the only way to add a class is with an authorization code (add code). If the class is online, you will have to email the instructor for an add code. The instructor's email address is in the course information in WebAdvisor. If the instructor has room in their class, they will email you an add/authorization code. If the class is in-person, you will have to sit-in the class on the first day and ask the instructor for an add code. Students who were on the waitlist for the course before the start date will be given priority. Watch this short tutorial on how to register with an authorization code or use the instructions below to register for the course using the add code.

Instructions on Registering for a Class using an Add/Authorization Code

WHAT IS A WAITLIST?

A waitlist is a list that students can join and wait to see if a spot becomes available in a class. If a student in the class drops, a seat opens up and is filled by a student on the waitlist. Being on the waitlist does not guarantee you a seat in the class. However, students on the waitlist are given a priority of being added to the class first before students that are not on the waitlist.

HOW DO I JOIN A WAITLIST?

When trying to register for a class in WebAdvisor that has no open seats, students will be able to choose “Waitlist” instead of “Register” for the class when it is in their “Cart”. The class will appear as “Waitlisted” in the student’s class schedule. Students can waitlist multiple classes, but you cannot waitlist multiple classes of the same subject. For example, you can waitlist an English 1A and Math 4A class, but you cannot waitlist two different English 1A classes.

HOW DO I MANAGE A WAITLIST?

Once you have added your name to a waitlist, you can log into WebAdvisor and click on “Manage My Waitlist” to check your waitlist status. Below are the three different waitlist statuses: 

Active = you are still on the waitlist waiting for a seat. 
Permission to Register = You are now eligible to register for the waitlisted course.
Expired = Your waitlist has expired and you have lost your opportunity to register.

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR A CLASS I AM NOT ON THE WAITLIST FOR?

If a seat becomes available for you in your waitlisted course, you will receive an email notification with “Permission to Register” for your waitlisted course. The email message will only be sent to your student email account. You can also access check this information in WebAvisor under “Manage My WaitList” to see if your status has changed to “Permission to Register.”

Once permission to register is granted, you will have 4 days (including weekends) to enroll in the class using WebAdvisor. After four days, if you have not enrolled in the class, you will be removed from the active waitlist and the next student on the list will be notified. If your "Permission to Register" expires, you must add yourself to the waitlist again. We recommend you use a laptop or desktop computer when registering to avoid compatibility issues with cell phones or tablets.

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR A CLASS AFTER I AM GIVEN PERMISSION TO ADD? 

Watch the following Registration Waitlist video to learn how to register for a waitlisted class after you have been granted permission via your college email. Make sure to click Registration: Waitlist in your playlist to watch the correct video. Remember you will have 4 days (including weekends) to enroll in the class using WebAdvisor.

WHAT IF I FORGET TO CHECK MY EMAIL?

It is your responsibility to check your email and/or your waitlist status. The time allowed for enrollment will not be extended. You should check your email or status on WebAdvisor daily to allow yourself the maximum amount of time to enroll.

WHAT IF I AM ON THE WAITLIST FOR AN ONLINE CLASS WHEN THE CLASS STARTS?

If you are on a waitlist for an online class when the class starts, you must email the instructor the first day of class to see if a spot is available to add the class. If there is space in the class, the instructor will provide you with an Authorization Code (add code) that you can use to register through WebAdvisor. 

WHAT IF I AM ON THE WAITLIST FOR AN IN-PERSON CLASS WHEN THE CLASS STARTS?

If you are on a waitlist for an in-person class when the class starts, you must attend the first class meeting and check with the instructor to see if there is space available to be added to the class. If you do not attend the first day of class, you will lose your place on the waitlist and another student may be added instead. If there is space in the class, the instructor will provide you with a registration code that you can use to register through WebAdvisor.

WHAT IF I HAVE A REGISTRATION HOLD?

If you have a registration hold, you will want to clear it with the appropriate department or college staff member. You can check to see if you have any holds under the Registration section in WebAdvisor by clicking on the Registration Eligibility Information link. Review the Hold and Academic Legends link for information on how to clear any holds.

WHAT IF THERE IS A TIME CONFLICT WITH MY WAITLISTED CLASS AND ANOTHER CLASS ON MY SCHEDULE?

WebAdvisor will allow you to waitlist courses regardless of time conflicts with other courses on your schedule. However, the system will not allow you to register for courses that have overlapping meeting times. If you are granted permission to register for a waitlisted course that meets at the same time as another class on your schedule, you will have to drop the class causing the time conflict or remove yourself from the waitlisted course.

DO I HAVE TO PAY TO BE ON A WAITLIST?

There is no fee for adding your name to a waitlist. However, once you have registered for the class, if fees are not paid on or before the payment due date you might be dropped from all classes.

Waitlists will be active from the first day of registration through the Thursday prior to the start of the term. For short-term courses, the waitlist will close 7 days prior to the start of the class.

CLASS ABBREVIATIONS ON THE STUDENT EDUCATION PLAN (SEP)

In WebAdvisor you will be asked to search by “Subject” with the class spelled out, not abbreviated. You can view the Subject Abbreviations list(s) to assist you in searching for classes listed on your SEP.
