Wait List

Untitled document

Some courses at Saint Louis University have an automated waitlist.

This allows you to add yourself to the waitlist for a closed course.
If / When space becomes available you are notified via an E-mail to your SLU E-mail account.
You can then register for the course through the MySLU Add/Drop classes screen.
The date and time you added yourself to a waitlist is stored and students are notified on a first-come-first-serve basis.

How to Waitlist

  • When you attempt to register for a closed course with a waitlist you will be prompted to select "Waitlisted" and then click "Submit Changes"
    • If you do not want to be on the waitlist select "None" and click "Submit Changes"
  • If/When a seats becomes available you will receive an E-mail
  • You will have 24 hours to register for the course
    • Navigate to your Add/Drop classes page and change the status to "Web Registered"
  • If you fail to register within the allotted time the seat will be given to the next student on the waitlist
  • Once your schedule is finalized please remove yourself from any remaining waitlists via the Add/Drop classes page
    • Change the status of the course to "Web Dropped"
  • When a waitlist exists the Seats Remaining column, "REM", on the class search is NOT accurate.  If a seat opens, priority goes to the waitlisted students.  You may add yourself to a waitlist to get future available seats.
  • Waitlists are deleted each semester when online registration, closes
