Late Add Authorization

Late Registration Fee Waiver Request Form

All registrations require instructor permission beginning the fourth business day of the term. Instructors will need to add a Late Add override to students’ accounts to register online.

A late registration fee will be charged for students not previously enrolled starting the fourth business day of the term.

Closed Sections

If a course is closed and has a waitlist option, you may choose to be placed on the waitlist for that course section. On EagleNET, you will see a drop-down menu item “Action” with a “Web Wait List” option if a class has available room on the waitlist. Select this option to be added to the waitlist.

You may also request to be placed on a waitlist by visiting our office in person. To determine if a course has a waitlist available, look up your course in the “Course Section Search” and find the column “WL ACT.”  This column indicates how many waitlist seats a course has available.
Please be aware that being placed on the waitlist indicates that you would like a spot in that course.

  • This does not guarantee you a spot in the course.
  • You are responsible for officially dropping or withdrawing from any course that you have been waitlisted for or enrolled in and do not wish to take.

Waitlists

  • Waitlists are established at the preference of the department. This is communicated to Records and Registration during the proofing process. The waitlist maximum on the course section can be increased or decreased from a default of 10 any time during the open registration period via departmental written notification to Records and Registration.
  • Once a waitlist is established, no additional students can be enrolled in the course even if openings are available until the entire waitlist is cleared. Existing students on the waitlist will be enrolled automatically when an opening occurs in the course section.
  • If a faculty wishes to give a student permission to enroll in a closed (full) course section that has a waitlist, the faculty should wait until the 4th day of the quarter to sign the registration form giving permission for the enrollment. The waitlist will continue to run automatically through the end of the 3rd day of the quarter. No students can be added through faculty signature until the end of the waitlist process (the end of the 3rd day of the quarter).

You should not put yourself on the waitlist when you are enrolled in another section of the same course. You also should not be waitlisted into more than one section of the same course. When a seat becomes available in a course you are waitlisted for, you will receive an email in your Eagles email account telling you that you will be registered for the course. If you have a hold on your record or registration into the course puts you in an overload status (over 18 quarter credits), we will not be able to register you. Please contact our office immediately if you cannot confirm that you have been registered within 24 hours of receiving the email notification. If you no longer wish to be enrolled in the course, you must drop yourself from the course on EagleNET or in person. You are responsible for tuition and fees for all registered classes. If you have received instructor permission on your registration form to add a course with a waitlist, we will not be able to register you in the course until the fourth business day of the quarter.

Note: Waitlisted course credits are not included in your billing statement or for financial aid received. Time conflicts will not be checked for waitlisted courses.
