Waitlisting for Courses

We are pleased to announce the Waitlist process for registration, which will be available in some courses.

If you attempt to register for a section that is CLOSED (full to capacity) and there is a WAITLIST for that section, you will be asked if you wish to be on a Waitlist. (You will need to enter the 5-digit CRN in the CRN block on the registration screen. Then, when the course comes up as “closed”, click on the down-arrow next to that course and select “Waitlisted”.)

  • If a seat becomes available in a Waitlisted course, the first student on the Waitlist will receive an email at his/her CCSU email address. This student will then have 24 hours from the ‘send’ date and time of that email to either register for the Waitlisted course or drop from the Waitlist.
     
  • If no action is taken within 24 hours of that email being sent, this student’s Waitlist entry will be deleted and the next student on the Waitlist will be notified by email.

In order to be on a Waitlist, you must satisfy all course pre-requisites and be eligible to register.

 

Waitlist FAQ
 

What is a Registration Waitlist?

A registration Waitlist is an electronic list of students who are waiting to register for a closed/filled course.  Students may sign up for this when they attempt to register for a section that has reached its capacity.  The first student on the registration Waitlist is notified via email when a space becomes available. (Remember to check your CCSU email accounts regularly!) This student then has 24 hours to register for the section.  If the student does not register for the section within the 24 hour time frame, he/she will be dropped from the registration Waitlist for that section and the next student on the Waitlist will be notified.

 

 

 

How can I identify course that have a Waitlist available while using Look-Up Classes to Add?

You will be able to recognize courses as Waitlist eligible by the “WL” columns. 
WL Max” is the maximum number of seats on the Waitlist, while
WL REM” is the remaining number of seats available on the Waitlist.

 

 

 

How do I get on a Registration Waitlist for a section?

  1. Log into CentralPipeline-Web Central/Banner Web,
  2. On the Registration/Records tab click on Registration, Add/Drop Classes,
  3. Then click on Registration, Add/Drop Classes, and Make Payment
  4. Click on the Class Search button and search for both OPEN and CLOSED sections.

 

If you see the course you would like is closed and has remaining seats available on the Waitlist column “WL REM”, make note of the CRN (the 5-digit number next to the Subject and course number). 
Then type that CRN in the Add Class box and click the Submit Changes button.

 

The course will appear as a Registration Add Error stating “Closed-Waitlist Available”. Click on the drop-down arrow next to the CRN and select Waitlisted and click on the Submit Changes button.
The class will now appear on your schedule as Waitlist Request.

 

 

 

The section I want to register for doesn’t have a Registration Waitlist.  Why?

Only certain courses as determined in that department will be eligible for Waitlisting. 

 

 

 

How will I know when a space becomes available in a class for which I am on the Registration Waitlist?

An email will be sent to your CCSU email account, notifying you there is a space available. If you’ve forwarded your email, it will be forwarded to that email address. 

You will have 24 hours to make a decision on whether or not to register for that course. 

If no action is taken 24 hours after the “sent” date/time of that email, you will be automatically dropped from the Waitlist
and the next student in line on the Waitlist will be notified by email. 
Remember to check your CCSU email account regularly!

 

 

 

Once the email is sent, how long do I have to register?

You will have 24 hours after the “send” date/time of the email to make a decision on whether to add the course.  If you do not register within that time frame, you will be automatically dropped from the waitlist. If you miss your registration deadline but still wish to register for the class, you may sign up for the Registration Waitlist again.

 

 

 

How do I register for the waitlisted course once I receive my email notification that a seat is available to me?

  1. Log into CentralPipeline-Web Central/Banner Web
  2. On the Registration/Records tab click on Registration, Add/Drop Classes
  3. Then click on Registration, Add/Drop Classes, and Make Payment
  4. Click on the drop-down arrow next to the CRN and select Web Registered
  5. Click on the Submit Changes button. You are now registered for the course and it will show up on your schedule.

 

 

 

How do I drop the waitlisted course once I receive my email notification that a seat is available to me, now that I have changed my mind and I no longer want the course?

          If no action is taken on your part, after your time has expired you will be automatically

          dropped and the seat will then be offered to the next student on the waitlist.

 

Or, you can drop yourself from that course’s Waitlist by following these steps:

  1. Log into CentralPipeline-Web Central/Banner Web
  2. On the Registration/Records tab click on Registration, Add/Drop Classes
  3. Then click on Registration, Add/Drop Classes, and Make Payment
  4. Click on the drop-down arrow next to the CRN and select Drop Web
  5. Click on the Submit Changes button.

 

 

Do I need to meet course prerequisites and restrictions to get on a Registration Waitlist?

Yes, prerequisites and restrictions are checked before you are allowed to join a Waitlist.  However, possible time conflicts with the desired course are not checked, to allow for Waitlist flexibility.  (If you do get into a Waitlisted course, you will need to drop the other course where the time conflict exists.)

 

 

 

May I sign up for more than one Registration Waitlist?

You may sign up for as many registration Waitlists as you choose.  There is no limit.  However, we strongly urge you to remove yourself from all Waitlists once your registration has been finalized so that others may have an opportunity to register for available courses in a timely manner.

 

 

 

If I register for one section of a course and I am on the Registration Waitlist for other sections of the same course, will I be automatically dropped from the Registration Waitlist of the other sections?

No, you must drop yourself to be removed from any Registration Waitlist.

 

 

 

May I sign up for the same Waitlist more than once to increase my chances of getting in the section?

No, you may have only one Waitlist per given section of a course at a time (one Waitlist per given CRN or "Course Registration Number" at a time).  If you are dropped from the Waitlist or drop yourself from the Waitlist, you may sign up for the Waitlist again.

 

 

 

Will my Waitlisted courses show up on Blackboard?

No.  Only courses you are actually registered in will show up on Blackboard.
