Using the Wait List

If you’re interested in registering for a closed course, please communicate with the instructors to see if they will be enrolling students from the wait list. Through the fifth day of classes, when students drop a class, students on the wait list will be automatically enrolled in the class based on their position on the wait list. Please note that SDSU’s matriculated students have priority for all wait-listed courses.

  • If an instructor indicates they are admitting students from the wait list, add yourself to the wait list for the course section/course by enrolling into the course and selecting the option to add yourself to the wait list. Students enrolled from the wait list will receive an email notification to the email address listed on the student's my.SDSU account when a course becomes available.
  • If an instructor indicates they are not admitting students from the wait list, find another class that meets the requirements you are looking for.
