How do I know when I'll get added to a course or program from the Catalog wait list?

If you want to enroll in a listing but enrollment is closed, you may be able to add your name to a wait list. After you add your name to a wait list, you are automatically enrolled when a spot opens. You can remove yourself from the wait list at any time. When a spot is available in a course or program, Catalog sends you an email to notify you of enrollment and/or needed payment.

Spots become available when other students drop a course or program, or if an administrator increases the enrollment limit.
