Waitlists, Full Courses, and YOU!

HOW WAITLISTS WORK ON WISER

When a College of Management course becomes full, students have the option of adding themselves to the waitlist for the course.  Any seats that become available (usually from an enrolled student dropping the course for any reason) are filled with the waiting students, in the order they are waiting, until the course capacity is reached once again, and the course is back to being full.  Wiser automatically fills closed (or full) classes with waiting students each night.

Please note that if there is a registration conflict, Wiser will move to the next student on the waitlist, and enroll him/her even if s/he is not the first person on the waitlist.  Examples of registration conflicts are:

–          enrollment in another course at the same time;

–          enrollment in another section of the same course;

–          missing pre-requisites;

–          insufficient available credits for additional registration (the standard limit is 17 credits/semester)

Unfortunately, if a student is skipped by Wiser for theses reason, there is little we can do since waitlist enrollments are automated and students can make schedule changes 24 hours/day.  Please take the necessary steps to avoid these issues.

College of Management courses do not have permission numbers attached to them. We use the waitlist process ONLY to manage enrollments of full courses.

GETTING INTO A FULL COURSE

Once a class is full, we work from the waitlist as described.  Occasionally, faculty will allow extra students into the course, over the prescribed capacity.  The CM Undergraduate Program Office must hear directly from the instructor if s/he wants to take extra students, and how many.  Even with addition extra students, not everyone from the waitlist will be moved into the course.  If you are able to get a seat in the course through the regular waitlist process or through a professor consenting to adding students to the course, you will see this reflected on Wiser (your status will got from “waiting” to “enrolled”).  Please note that when adding extra students, they are moved in the waitlist order using the same parameters noted above, and students must be on the waitlist before they can be added to the course.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

–       We will strive to have over-enrollment requests handled by the same time on the next business day.  Please check wiser instead of visiting our office to check on the status of this.  Also, please bear in mind that the time an instructor tells you s/he will contact us, and the time we get the actual request may be different times, sometimes even different days.

–       We do not notify students of these registration changes when they happen; please keep checking Wiser.

–       Please note that to be fair to all students, we cannot move a student ahead of other waiting students.  We accommodate students in the order of the waitlists at all times for over enrollment issues.

–       The last day to add a course this semester is September 13. If you are not enrolled in a course by this date, there is no need for you to continue attending the course, as you will not be able to be added after this date.

Transfer Credit Fast Fact

Per University policy, no course from a two year school can be transferred to UMB with an equivalency of a 300 level course or higher?

You can access a list of MA community college course equivalencies at u.select.
It’s a pretty neat tool – check it out! More information and instructions are here.
