How do I add my name to the wait list for a Catalog course or program?

If you want to enroll in a listing but enrollment is closed, you may be able to add your name to a wait list. If you are waitlisted, Catalog will automatically enroll you in the course or program when a spot opens. You can remove yourself from the wait list at any time.

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

You can manage your wait list courses or programs from your catalog Student Dashboard.

Note: You must have a Catalog account to add your name to the wait list for a course or program. You may be asked to create an account if you are not already logged in.
