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.
