Wait List

When students are registering, if a course section is filled, they are advised to put their name on the “Wait List” for that course section.  Any person or workgroup with permissions to add courses to a student’s Education Plan has the ability to add students to the Wait List.  The Wait List will prioritize students in the order they are added.

When a spot in the course becomes available, the first student on the Wait List will be contacted at both their Rio Grande email address and by telephone by the Registrar’s Office.  The student then has 24 hours to respond to the Registrar for the available spot. If the student is notified on a Friday, s/he will have until the same time on Monday to respond. If the first student declines to be added to the class, the next student on the list will be notified.

The Wait List will be kept by the Registrar’s Office, and the student’s place on the List will be honored through Friday @ 5:00pm of the Drop-Add week.
