How do registration course wait lists work?

When a class is full, you have the option to add yourself to its wait list to be notified if a seat becomes available. The wait list is shut off the night before the first day of the semester. Wait listing is not available for late start courses.

Notification of an open seat:

You will be notified at your Century College email address as your position on the wait list moves up. Once you are offered a seat in your wait listed class, you have exactly 24 hours to register (the email will indicate your registration deadline). It is extremely important that you monitor your email closely so you do not miss your wait list opening.


Being able to add yourself to a wait list does not mean you will be eligible to register for the class if a seat becomes available. Be sure you resolve all holds, verify in eServices you will pass course prerequisites, and remove all other registration barriers in advance so that you can register when a wait listed seat is offered to you. Wait listed seats become available 24 hours a day, including weekends. During non-business hours staff may not be available to assist you. You cannot be returned to your original place on the wait list if you fail to register during the 24 hour window.

Viewing your wait listed classes:

View your wait listed classes in eServices by clicking “Courses & Registration” and then “Review My Plan.” Your plan also displays your position on the wait list and allows you to remove yourself from the wait lists of courses you no longer want.
