Registration Waitlisting
Undergraduate classes offered during the fall, spring and summer (main campus) will have the waitlist option during registration periods.  Waitlisting does not register students for a class but places students in a queue in case a spot in the class becomes available.  When a seat becomes available, the first student in the queue receives an email to his/her UIW email account informing him/her of the opening.

Waitlist rules:

  • Students cannot waitlist a class if they have holds or if they do not have the course prerequisites.
  • Waitlist is available on a first-come/first-served basis.
  • Waitlist is not available for all courses and there are limits to the number of students allowed in the waitlist queue.
  • Students cannot waitlist multple sections of the same course.
  • Adding your name to a waitlist does not register you for the class; you must register through Bannerweb after receiving the email that an opening is available.
  • Students have 24 hours to register for the opening in the class or they lose their place in the queue.
