During registration, if you try to register for a class that is full, “CLOSED – Wait Listed” you will be given the option to sign up on the Wait List for that class until the Wait List fills. Remember, being on a Wait List does not guarantee you a seat in a class. If seats become available, those on the Wait List will be registered for open seats in the order they are on the list.
Important: Passport will allow you to get on a Wait List, however, when the nightly process runs to check for any problems, you will be removed from a wait list if: you have any holds, time conflicts, repeat or prerequisite errors, duplicate courses, excessive units, or any type of registration error.
Can anybody get on a Wait List?
When there are Wait List openings, anyone can get on a Wait List. However, you are eligible to remain on that Wait List only if: you meet the class prerequisites, the class time does not conflict with another class in which you are already registered, you have no repeat errors, you have no holds on your record, or the class units will not exceed your maximum allowed.
Be aware: If you put yourself on a wait list and any of these errors occur when the nightly process moves students into classes from the wait list, you will be dropped from the wait list. Also, you cannot be on a wait list for another section of the same course.
Who gets into a class?
If class seats become available, students will automatically be enrolled in the class in the order in which they entered the Wait List.
How do I know if I got into a class?
If you are moved into a class from the Wait List, you will be notified by email to your Peralta email account. It is important that you activate and monitor your Peralta emails during the registration period. If you are registered in a class from the Wait List, it will be your responsibility to pay all fees 2 weeks before the beginning of the term. Students who are added after this deadline are required to pay their fees immediately or a hold WILL be placed on your account and your debt will be sent to collections.
When do I pay for the class?
Fees will be assessed after a student is officially registered in a class and must be paid 2 weeks before the beginning of the term. Students who are added after this deadline are required to pay their fees immediately or a hold WILL be placed on your account and your debt will be sent to collections. A student on a Wait List must monitor his/her email during the registration period if and when they are moved into a class.
It is important to remember that placement on a Wait List does not guarantee a seat in the class. Students on a Wait List after classes begin should attend the first class meeting to be able to enroll if space is available.
