Sweetland Waitlist Policy

Students who want to be admitted to a closed WRITING course should add themselves to the waitlist and attend the first day of class. When a seat becomes available prior to the first day of classes, students will receive permission to register via email according to the criteria below. Once class permission is granted, students will have 48 hours to register for the class. If students do not register within 48 hours, they lose their place on the waitlist and the next priority student will be issued permission to register.

Students are issued permission to register based upon a variety of criteria depending upon which class they have waitlisted.

  • WRITING 100: Students waitlisted for WRITING 100 who have a higher number of credit hours, have not yet fulfilled their First-Year Writing Requirement, and attend the first two class meetings will be given priority. All other students will be notified based on their position on the waitlist.
  • WRITING 120: Students waitlisted for WRITING 120 who have a higher number of credit hours, have not yet fulfilled their First-Year Writing Requirement, and attend the first two class meetings will be given priority. All other students will be notified based on their position on the waitlist.
  • WRITING 200 mini courses: Students waitlisted for one-credit WRITING 200 courses will be notified based on their position on the waitlist and their attendance at the first class meeting.
    Please note: Students may not add a one-credit mini course after the second class meeting.
  • WRITING 400: Students waitlisted for WRITING 400 will be admitted based on class standing, with seniors given priority, and their attendance at the first two class meetings. Depending on the class topic, students on the waitlist may be given preference based on academic departments (i.e., students within a social science field may be admitted into the social science section over a student within a humanities field). All other students will be notified based on their position on the waitlist.
  • Other WRITING Courses: Waitlisted students will be notified based upon their position on the waitlist and their attendance at the first class meeting.

Please note: It is department policy that students MUST attend the first two class meetings or notify the instructor that they will be absent. Failure to do so may result in the student losing their place on the waitlist or being dropped from the course.

Once classes begin, waitlisted students must attend the first two meetings of the class to be considered for enrollment or they will be dropped from the waitlist. If a student did not add themselves to a waitlist prior to the first day of class but would like to enroll, they should add themselves to the waitlist and attend the first two meetings of the class. Instructors manage their waitlists once classes begin based on attendance at the first two class meetings and the criteria above.
