Waitlist Policy

updated 03/05/2009

When a course becomes fully enrolled, a waitlist is created and students attempting to register for a particular course will be placed on the waitlist.  By careful management of enrollments, the Department of Mathematics makes every effort to accommodate students registering for Math 115, 116, 215, and 216.  Please see department staff for assistance in registering for a section of Math 115, 116, 215, and 216 if they appear temporarily closed.

In general, waitlisted students in Mathematics courses numbered 300 and above receive priority for permissions based on:

  • Whether they are declared Mathematics concentrators
  • How close they are to graduation
  • When they joined the waitlist

Please note that particular courses or sections may have different or additional criteria for overrides; these are posted as "Notes" on Wolverine Access.

For additional information, please contact the Undergraduate Office.
