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

You can make a request to be waitlisted through the SIS Self-Service website. 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 (via their JHU email address only) 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 or work with Student Accounts and/or Financial Aid to resolve the issue via SEAM’s online form.
