Waitlists

Summer Waitlist

  • Waitlists turn on May 1 for all classes and turn off after the add deadline (for each session).
  • The waitlist process runs every half hour during business hours, beginning at 9:15 am every day, with the last run at 4:15 pm every afternoon.
  • As spots open up or course capacity is expanded, students are automatically added into the class according to their waitlist position. If students are not automatically being enrolled, it is usually due to a time conflict, unmet prerequisite, having already met the credit max, etc.
  • Students do not get a notification when they are added, so they should be encouraged to check their MyUCSC portal for class status. 
  • On the student side, information on to enroll, edit or see their position on the waitlist is on the Register FAQ page.
