Wait List Information

Am I eligible for wait-listing?

Students can wait-list for courses as long as the following conditions are met:

  • The course must be required in your current major or declared minor.

  • The course must be offered within the Faculty of Fine Arts.

  • You have the prerequisite for the course or have submitted a signed Prerequisite Waiver Form to the
    Fine Arts Advising Office (W660).

  • The course must fit your schedule or you give us permission to drop you from a course to accommodate the wait-listed course.

  • You must have attempted to register in the course during your initial assigned registration period.

How do I wait-list for a course?

A Wait-List Request Web Form will be made available through the Fine Arts Advising website only duringthe wait-listing periods.

Continuing students are able to wait-list immediately following the initial registration period and newly admitted students are able to wait-list immediately following the add/drop period.

Does it matter how early during the wait-listing period I submit my request?

No, wait-list requests are prioritized based on the students' degree progress. Students who are closest to finishing their degree will be accommodated first and students wait-listing on the last day will receive equal treatment to those submitting on the first day of the wait-list period.

Once I am on the wait-list, should I keep trying to register?

Yes, it is required that wait-listed students continue trying to register in the course(s) on their own.
