Wait Lists

If the course for which a student is attempting to register is full (i.e., it has met its enrollment limit), that student may opt via the SIS Self-Service website to be placed on a wait list. Students may wait list for only one section of a particular course. Students should not contact the instructor to request approval to register for a closed course. Wait listing 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 Office of the Registrar will contact students (via their JHU email address only) in the order in which they were placed on the wait list. Students will be given until the close of business (5:00 pm) of the next business day to respond to the email notification. If no reply is received by the Office of the Registrar by the deadline, the student will be removed from the wait list and the next student on the wait list will be offered the open space.
