Waitlisting is an automated process which allows students to add themselves to an electronic waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis if a desired section is full.
Frequently Asked Questions
If a seat becomes available in the waitlisted section, the first student on the waitlist will be notified through their BYU-Idaho student email that a seat is being held for them to add. If the student does not add the course within 24 hours, the student is removed from the waitlist, and a notification is sent to the next student on the waitlist.
No. Once a seat becomes available, an automated email will be sent to the BYU-Idaho email of the first student on the waitlist. As with all registration, it is then the student's responsibility to add the course.
Once a seat becomes available, an automated email will be sent to your BYU-Idaho email account. It is important for students to monitor their registration routinely to determine how quickly a waitlist is processed for a particular section. It is the student's responsibility to closely monitor their waitlists to prevent missing their opportunity to add a needed course.
Since BYU-Idaho students can be found worldwide, please realize that a waitlisted seat may become available to you during the weekend (including Sundays) and on holidays. It is not feasible for waitlisting to be turned off on Sundays in the Mountain Time Zone because that time will not be Sunday for other students in other time zones. Waitlisting runs 24 hours a day, every day of the year..
You will lose your spot on the waitlist. If you still need the course, you will have to re-add yourself to the bottom of the waitlist. Students cannot be added back to the top of any waitlist.
Once you register for any section of a given course, you will be automatically dropped from the waitlists of other sections of that same course. Students cannot be both registered and waitlisted in sections of the same course.
Yes. You will be able to waitlist sections with conflicting schedules. However, once you are approved to add a course, you will have to either drop the course for which you are already registered or remove yourself from the waitlist, indicating that you no longer need the waitlisted section.
