Policy Regarding Waitlists and Overrides

  • All American Culture (AMCULT) courses will have electronic waitlists on Wolverine Access. Students interested in an American Culture course that has filled should add their name to the appropriate waitlist online.
  • From the first day of registration until the last business day before the first day of classes, a member of the AC staff will monitor enrollments and note any waitlisted courses that have spaces available.
  • When available, a member of the AC staff will issue an override for each open space in a waitlisted course. Students who are officially declared AC-affiliated majors or minors will be given priority for overrides in 300-level and higher courses. If there are no officially declared AC-affiliated majors or minors on the waitlist, overrides will be issued according to waitlist order.
  • For AMCULT 100 and 200-level courses, priority for overrides will be given to freshmen and sophomores, unless otherwise noted by the instructor.
  • The overrides issued will have an expiration date of 48 hours (including weekends). If the student does not accept the override within that time frame, it will expire. This will allow the staff member to offer the space to the next eligible student on the waitlist, who will then have 48 hours to enroll.
    Please note: the expiration date will be one week (including weekends) when classes are not in session.
  • If all students on a given waitlist have been given an opportunity to enroll, but do not do so, a member of the AC staff will ask the Registrar’s Office to drop them from said waitlist. This will allow the class to reopen for registration.
  • Once classes begin, no overrides will be issued without the consent of the instructor for the course. S/he has final authority on whether or not to issue overrides.

Students should also be advised of the following:

  • Registration on an American Culture waitlist does not guarantee that
    1. the student will be given an override into the class at any time, or
    2. the student who is first on the waitlist will be the first person offered an override.
  • Students can only waitlist for one section of a particular class. In other words, if there are multiple discussion sections for a lecture/discussion course, the student must waitlist for the section s/he wants the most.
  • Prior to the start of classes, we will not give special consideration for overrides based on seniority, as upperclassmen already have priority to enroll or join waitlists because their registration appointments are early in the add/drop period.
