What is Waitlisting?

Waitlisting is a process where a student can electronically wait in line for classes that have met their set maximum enrollment (closed).

Being on a waitlist does NOT guarantee registration in the class.

  • Your position on a class waitlist is on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Registration from a waitlist is not automatic. Check your email daily; if you receive a notification, you will have to log in to myOC and register within 24 hours or lose your position on the waitlist.
  • Check your holds in myOC. With most holds, you will be unable to add yourself to a class or register from a waitlist - even if you have received a notification.
  • Be considerate and remove yourself from a waitlist if you no longer want the class.
  • For more information, see the Waitlist How To on myOC.
