Waitlisting FAQ

Q: I was first on the waitlist and a seat was available but I didn’t get enrolled. What happened?


  • You may have a time conflict between the waitlisted class and an enrolled class. 
  • You may be enrolled in a different section of the same class for which you are waitlisted. 
  • You may already be enrolled in the maximum units allowed.  Maximum units for the term are 16 unless you are a senior or a postbaccalaureate student, who are allowed 17 units during enrollment appointments and 21 units during add/drop.
