About Waitlists

Slideshow: Using a Waitlist

Waitlist FAQ (for Students)

Many courses offered that have reached capacity will provide the opportunity to waitlist during registration.

What is a waitlist? A waitlist is a way you can add your name to a list for full classes during the enrollment process. If a seat becomes available, you are automatically enrolled. This service is available for many courses offered. Waitlists are not available for all courses. There are some limitations and conditions for waitlists. What follows are some common questions about waitlists.

What classes can I waitlist? Most undegraduate classes will have waitlists (see the limitations section below). Contact the department offering the course if you are not offered the waitlist option and believe you should.

When can I be added to a waitlist? Once a class is full, a student can add their name to a waitlist beginning on their appointment date up to two business days before the beginning of the term.

What happens after the waitlist period? The waitlist for a course will be turned off at 11:59 pm two business days before classes begin for the term. Students remaining on the waitlist after this period will not be enrolled through the waitlist process. At this point, instructors will determine who is added to the class.

What should I do after I successfully waitlist in GET? Before the start of the term be sure to watch your official Cal State LA email address (in the myCalStateLA portal) for notice that you have successfully enrolled. If you don't receive notification then you are probably not enrolled. In this case, after the term starts be sure to attend the first class meeting for the course you wish to add. At this first class you may be able to obtain a permit from the instructor to add the class.

I am a part-time student, can I waitlist? All appropriate fees must be paid before enrollment from waitlist can occur. If appropriate fees are not current, the student will remain on the waitlist, but no enrollment transaction can take place. Part-time students who want to go into full-time status must pay full-time fees beforehand.

Do waitlisted courses count towards enrollment? Waitlist courses are not counted as enrolled courses and cannot be counted towards financial aid or enrollment verification status.

What if I decide to not enroll in a course that I waitlisted? Students are responsible for dropping themselves from the waitlist. If a student is enrolled through waitlist and does not attend the course, a grade of WU will be given which is the same grade point penalty as a grade of F.

How do I drop from a waitlist? You can drop from a wait list through the Student Center just as you would drop from any other class.

How do I check the status of my waitlist position? You can check your waitlist position in the class schedule section of the Student Center. Waitlist position numbers begin with number one using the “first come, first served” concept.

Can students not on waitlist take a seat? If seats become available, the open seats will not be available to students that are not on the waitlist. Students can add directly if there are seats available and nobody is on the waitlist.

How do I know if I am enrolled through the waitlist process? You should check your class schedule daily. If you become enrolled through waitlist you will receive an e-mail. Note that you have the responsibility to ensure that your enrollment is correct and you have added/dropped classes by the published deadlines.

Is there a guarantee that I will be enrolled if I get placed on a waitlist? There is no guarantee you will be enrolled from a waitlist. Remember, it is first come, first served.

May I enroll and waitlist in different sections of the same course? Yes, you may waitlist for different sections of the same class. If you are already enrolled in one section of a class, but prefer another section you may choose to swap the enrolled section for the waitlisted section. You will only be dropped once successfully enrolled from the wait list. You cannot waitlist for or swap into classes that have a Related Class in common, such as labs that share a common lecture.

How do I know when new sections are added for a course I've waitlisted? Academic departments are encouraged to notify waitlisted students via e-mail when new sections are added. Students are encouraged to monitor their enrollment and periodically check to see if new sections have been added. It is the student's responsibility to access GET and swap the waitlisted section for a new open section.

Waitlist FAQ (for Faculty)

Please visit the Faculty GET page for Faculty-specific waitlist information.

Waitlist Limitations

Co-requisites - Classes that require co-requisites cannot be waitlisted.

Permitted Courses - Courses that require permission cannot be waitlisted. You need to go to the course's department to receive a permit.

Registration Holds (Negative Service Indicators) - If you have holds on your registration, you cannot waitlist.

Requisites - If you have not completed the required requisites for a course, you cannot waitlist.

Time Conflict – If you are enrolled in a class at the same time the waitlist course is being offered, you will not be able to waitlist the course.

Exceeding Units - You cannot enroll in a waitlisted class if it causes you to exceed the maximum units allowed.

Additional Sections - Yout cannot enroll in a waitlisted class if you are already enrolled in a different section of the same course.

9 Units Maximum - Student may waitlist up to nine units at a time depending on full/part-time payment status.
