Registration Wait List Information

There are no wait lists for 100 level courses.

Once a 100 level course section is full, students will not be able to register in that course section or join a wait list. Students should check the Student Portal regularly (daily) to monitor if any seats become available. Occasionally, new course sections are added to the timetable during and after early registration so it is important to stay connected (this website, Instagram, Student Portal).
