    Waitlist FAQ’s

    What is waitlist?

    A waitlist allows students to stand in-line and wait for a seat to open in a closed section.

    What sections can be waitlisted?

    Starting Spring 2019, waitlisting will be available for all credit courses (except: Nursing, Paramedic, and Radiology)

    How can I waitlist a section?

    If a section you wish to add to your schedule is listed as "Closed" or "Waitlisted", you will have the option to waitlist the section.  In Owl Link, make your selection from the drop-down menu list, or in Student Planner select add to planner and select "Waitlist".  If you try to register, you will get an error message.

    How can I manage my waitlist?

    In Owl Link, on the “Register or Drop” page, you will find a link at the bottom of the page titled "Manage Waitlist" where you can drop from a waitlist and view your number on a waitlist.

    How will I know if I am at the top of the waitlist and eligible to register?

    You will know that you are eligible to register by receiving an email via your PGCC email account notifying you that you are eligible to register.  Note: You will have until midnight (24-hours) to register.

    What if I became eligible to register but missed the time frame to register for a course I am waitlisted?

    If you do not register for the course within the allotted timeframe, you will be removed from the waitlist and the next student will be notified.

    Can I waitlist for a course that has a time conflict with another course I am already registered?

    Yes, you can add yourself to the waitlist however. If a seat opens and you are able to register, you will not be able to register for any course that conflicts with the courses you are already registered for.

    Can I add myself to every section of a particular course?

    No.  You can only waitlist for one section at a time for a particular course.

    If I do not meet the prerequisite for a course, can I add myself to the waitlist?

    No.  You must meet all prerequisite in order to add yourself to the waitlist for that course.

    What other reasons could prevent me from being able to add myself to a waitlist?

    All holds applicable to registration, including dismissal and probation apply to the waitlist.

    If I am dropped for non-payment will I also be removed from waitlists?

    Yes, waitlist is a part of the registration process and you will be removed from all courses (registered and waitlisted) for non-payment.

    If I was dropped from a waitlist for non-payment and I reenroll, will I have to add myself back on the waitlist?

    Yes, once you re-register for courses that were dropped for non-payment, you will also have to add yourself back to any waitlist you were on. Your place on the waitlist is not held.

    Should I attend a class where I am on the waitlist?

    No.  You are not officially enrolled in the class and the waitlist will cease once registration ends. 

    Does the waitlist continue to offer seats (if one opens) to students after the registration ends?

    No.  The waitlist will not continue for that semester.

    Note: The waitlist feature is a list that keeps track of students who are waiting for an available seat to open up that is full, however, the waitlist does not guarantee a seat into a course.  Students should plan their schedule based on the possibility that a seat will become available.
