What is a registration waitlist?  

The registration waitlist allows students to be notified when a seat becomes available for a closed section. Not every section allows you to join a waitlist. You will be notified through your TUmail account when a seat becomes available. Once notified, you will need to register by the deadline noted in the email, typically 72 hours from notification (and 24 hours during the final week to waitlist). If you are not register by the deadline either administratively or via self-service, you will be dropped from the waitlist.  


If I join a waitlist, will I automatically be registered?

No, you will NOT automatically be registered. When a seat becomes available, you will receive an email sent to your TUmail account with instructions on how to register or drop yourself from the waitlist. It is your responsibility to check your email on a regular basis. Your advisors will NOT receive an email on your behalf. Waitlisting is not registration nor is it a guarantee for future registration. If you are on the waitlist on the day that it ends, you will be removed from the waitlist.
