Beginning 2018 Fall, the waitlist is offered until midnight before the first day of the semester. Once the semester begins, the waitlist is not an option.

Students registering for a closed class with a waitlist option will be offered the opportunity to be put on a Waitlist. Prerequisites must be met and class schedules must be free of time conflicts to be eligible for the Waitlist. Students on the Waitlist are not officially registered in the class. Waitlist status may be viewed on the mySLCC Student Portal.

When a registered student drops a seat in a closed class, the first students on the Waitlist will be notified through the SLCC BruinMail. (Caution: If the BruinMail is forwarded to another email account, the waitlist notification may be blocked by your carrier. It is therefore advised to not forward the SLCC BruinMail.) Once notified by email that a seat is available, the waitlisted student has 24 hours to register for the course. If registration is not finalized within the 24-hour period, the waitlisted student is dropped from the Waitlist, and the next waitlisted student is notified by email that a seat is available. Students are offered an open seat based on their waitlist position.

Follow directions below to sign up for a course waitlist, or select this detailed Tutorial.

  • Log in to your MySLCC and select the Registration.
  • Select Add / Drop Classes.
  • Select the semester (term) from the pull-down menu and click Submit. Add/Drop Classes appears. At the bottom, select Class Search. Look-Up Classes to Add appears.
  • Scroll through the Subject menu and highlight the course you want. Select Course Search and a list of courses appears. Scroll to find the course you want and select View Sections, and Sections Found appears.
  • Closed courses are marked with a letter “C” to the left. Find the Closed course you want and copy the CRN (Course Reference Number), and scroll to the bottom of the webpage and click Register, and Add/Drop Classes appears.
  • Paste or type the CRN into the field under CRNs near the bottom and click Submit Changes. The course appears with Registration Add Errors, informing you that the course is Closed.
  • Under the Action pull-down menu, select Waitlisted and click Submit Changes. The course will appear as Waitlisted on your Current Schedule.
  • This does not mean you are registered for the class. You must check your Bruin Mail daily for notification that a seat is available in the course. If you receive an email, you have only 24 hours to register for the course.

If the semester has started and you are still on the waitlist for a course, please attend the class anyway and discuss options with your instructor. Instructors are often able to add waitlisted students to their classes.
