- For a filled/closed course offering, Banner Waitlist is a tool that will let students get in line to be considered for registration if a spot were to open in the course.
- All course offerings will have a Waitlist.
- A course’s Waitlist becomes available for registration, when a course is full.
- Waitlist availability can be viewed by viewing ECSU’s master schedule.
- Students register for or drop the Waitlist using the same Banner process used to register
for a course.
- The only difference is the registration action will say Wait Listed.
- Waitlist will notify students via their preferred email when a spot has opened up
in a course offering and it is now their turn to register for the class.
- If a student is waitlisted, they are encouraged to check their preferred email often.
- Students will be given 24 hours to register if they are notified that a spot has opened in a course and it is their turn to register.
- When notified, if a student doesn’t register within their designated time, they will have to re-register if they want to be put back on the Waitlist.
- A semester’s Waitlist will end with the last day of the drop add period.
- If a spot did not become available, students will be dropped from the Waitlist and be sent a notification.
- A student must meet a course’s prerequisite in order to register on a course’s Waitlist.
- Registration holds also prevent students from registering on to a Waitlist.
- Waitlisted courses do not count in enrollment and students are not billed for a Waitlisted course.
- Students can view their spot in line on a course’s Waitlist through their Self-Service Banner Detail
- Students can waitlist for multiple courses.
- Instructors cannot do a Permit Override for a closed course in order to bypass the Waitlist for a student.
- Students on a Waitlist are not guaranteed to get a spot in the course.
- Students are encouraged to have alternative plans in case a registration spot in the course does not become available.
- If a student no longer wishes to be on a course’s Waitlist, out of courtesy to other students the student is encouraged to drop their name from the Waitlist.
