Waitlist Information

A waitlist is a list of students who want to register for a course section that is already full. If a seat opens in that section, the student is assigned to that section and notified through MVCC student email. Waitlisting a course does not guarantee a seat in the class. Students are added to the class in the order they joined the waitlist only if space becomes available. Waitlisting ends the day before classes begin.

How to add your name to a waitlist

In SIRS, follow the Registration menu to "Build My Schedule." When you enter a CRN for a course that is full, you will see the words "Closed - Waitlisted." Next to Action, select the "Add to Waitlist" option and click SUBMIT CHANGES.

Waitlist FAQ

If a seat becomes available for the afternoon section, you will be automatically registered for it and dropped from the morning section.

If a waitlisted space opens up that would create a time conflict, your schedule will not be automatically changed. In this case, you will be sent an email notifying you that a seat has become available. You will have at least 24 hours to respond if you want to rearrange your schedule to take the waitlisted class.

You will be automatically registered for the class, space permitting. Once you have been moved from the waitlist to the class, you will be notified via email. Always double check your class schedule in SIRS before the start of classes.

In SIRS, follow the Registration menu to "Build My Schedule." Use the drop down menu to change the course indicator from "Waitlist" to "Drop" and click SUBMIT CHANGES.
