How to Add Yourself to a Class's Waitlist
When a class you are attempting to schedule is full, meaning the enrollment capacity has been met, you may enroll yourself onto the waitlist. As enrollment fluctuates, a process in myWCU will attempt to enroll students on waitlists into those classes as seats become available. These instructions will detail how to search for and enroll onto waitlists. If you are already enrolled in a different section of the class you are trying to waitlist or have another class on your schedule for the same time as the class you wish to waitlist, be sure to enroll onto the waitlist using the swap option.

- The waitlist process attempts to enroll the student, but is unable to because:
- There is a time conflict with another course on the student’s schedule.
- The student would exceed the maximum allowable credits for the term.
