Wait List Information
How can I get on a wait list?
If you have been closed out of a class, you are not automatically placed on a wait list! You must place your name on a wait list for the course or seminar in which you would like to enroll. You may add your name to a wait list by filling out the online form. The Academic Regulations require that a student attend the first meeting of a seminar or Trial Advocacy section to be considered for enrollment. Be advised that we strongly recommend that you attend the first meeting of any closed class if you are on the wait list – many professors will not advise the Registrar to open enrollment to wait listed students beyond the first class meeting.
When do I find out if I got into a closed class?
It is important for you to attend the first class meeting in order to remain eligible to add the class should a space become available. Once the semester begins, the Registrar will review the wait lists and attendance sheets every day during the add/drop period to determine if any students can be admitted to a closed class from the wait list. We will post any lists of students admitted from wait lists on the glass wall outside of our office on the fourth floor. Copies of the lists will be posted on this page once the waitlists are available. They will be updated as new waitlist are posted.
What do I need to do if I have been admitted from the wait list?
Students who are admitted from a wait list must complete an add form at our office within 48 hours of that list being posted --you will not be able to add a closed course through WebReg.
What can I do if my name is not on the posted list?
Do not panic if your name does not appear on the initial list we post for your class. For larger classes, there is often room to accommodate everyone but it may take a few days - just continue to go to the class. It is more difficult to get into seminars and small enrollment courses. Check with our staff to find out if a seminar or small enrollment class is going to open to additional students.
Note: If enrolled in a seminar, Trial Advocacy, Contract Drafting or Transaction Simulation 1 or 2, you must attend the first class meeting or you will be administratively dropped from the class.
