If the course for which you are attempting to register is full and has met its enrollment limit, you may be placed on a waitlist.

You can make a request to be waitlisted through SIS Self-Service. You can waitlist for only one section of a particular course. You must contact the instructor to request approval to register for a closed course.

Please note that waitlisting for a course is not an official registration and students may not participate in a course unless officially registered for it.

If an opening occurs in a course prior to its first class meeting, the student at the top of the waitlist will be sent an automated email to only their JHU email address, from SIS, notifying them of the open space and giving them two days to respond.

If you have a hold on your account, such as a financial or probation hold, you will not be able to update your status from waitlist hold to enrolled until that is resolved. Students with probation holds should work with their adviser. Students with financial holds need to pay their balance via SIS Self-Service or work with Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM) via their online form.
