To set up the waitlist for a course, log in CPS class form and use the waitlist Cap field under enrollment. If setting up a waitlist for crosslisted course, be sure to include the waitlist capacity under the Cross-list Enrollment.
Here are a few of the common questions we receive regarding the waitlist feature:
How often is the waitlist run?
How many students can sign up for the waitlist?
A student appears in the #1 position on the waitlist but was bypassed for enrollment when the waitlist was processed. Why did this happen?
However, if the instructor approves the student's condition to attend both classes at the same time, then a permission number is needed. The permission number is issue by the dept admin and the student must drop from the waitlist and re-enroll using permission numbers.
Can a student enroll in the waitlist of multiple sections of a course?
Can we use permission numbers with the waitlist?
What happens to the waitlist after the final study list deadline?
