Course Waitlisting

  • This feature allows students to add themselves to the waitlist for courses that are full in MyCSI. This tool is designed to give students a chance to communicate with us their desire to register into a course that is full. * Waitlisting is unavailable for courses with a corequisite and not all classes can be waitlisted.
  • Students are added to the waitlist in the order they requested to waitlist the class. Students will be able to see their position/rank on each waitlisted class in MyCSI, and monitor/manage their registrations/waitlists accordingly.
  • Being on the waitlist DOES NOT mean that students are registered in the course and it DOES NOT guarantee a spot will become available.
  • As spots open, the Office of the Registrar will put students from the waitlist into courses (based on the students’ position on the waitlist.)


  • If students waitlist themselves in more than one section of the same course, once they are placed/registered into any of those waitlisted sections, they will be dropped from the waitlist for the other sections.
  • When students are registered in one section and they waitlist themselves in another section of the same course, if a spot opens up in the waitlisted section and they are first on the waitlist, they will be dropped from the other section in which they initially enrolled. Basically, when students are registered into a section and end up waitlisting another section, the assumption will be that the waitlisted section is the preferred section.


  • The number of courses/credits on the waitlist do NOT count towards the student’s full-time/ part-time status or financial aid eligibility.
  • Once moved from the waitlist into a course, students are responsible for payment of tuition and fees and meeting all applicable deadlines.
  • The day before the semester begins students remaining on a waitlist will be removed.
