HI 190: History of Boston Waitlist

Starting Fall 2021, we will reserve 20 seats in the course just for CAS freshmen. The course will be offered in both the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters. In early August 2021, we will begin adding students in other class years to the course from off the waitlist.

Waitlist priority will be given to History majors and minors. Note: if you try to join the waitlist before your own registration date and time, you will be removed from the waitlist and will have to reenter after your registration time has passed.

The department will be in contact with you by email if we are able to add you to the course from the waitlist. We will maintain the waitlists until the last day to add a course for the semester. Any inquiries can be sent to history@bu.edu.

Important: we are not able to register students who are not currently in compliance with University Requirements. If it is your turn to be registered for the course but you are not currently in compliance, you will have three days from when we contact you to meet University Requirements before we will have to move onto the next student on the waitlist.
