How do I view the wait list for a catalog course or program?

If you set an enrollment cap as part of adding a course or adding a program, you can enable a wait list for the listing. A wait list allows students to add their names to a list to join a course or program when the enrollment cap has been reached. Learn more about enrollment cap limits in Catalog.

When a student drops out of the course or program, the first student on the wait list will be added to the course. You can manage each course or program and view the list of students who have added their names to the wait list. Learn more about the wait list process for students.

If no students drop a course or program, you can manually add students to a course from a wait list by changing the enrollment cap.
