Can’t get into a CM course on Wiser? Try our ONLINE form

If you are a College of Management student and cannot add into a CM class on Wiser that you think you should be able to add to, you have an online form to help. This allows advisors to look into the situation, and manually add you the course, if possible.

Please bear in mind that when you have a hold, are missing pre-requisites, have a time conflict with another course, or are already registered for the maximum allowable credits for the semester, completing this form will still not allow us to add you to the course.

This form, and others that might be useful to you can be found under the Student Resources link on the CM website.

Comments Off on Getting Enrolled into a Full CM Course

Getting Enrolled into a Full CM Course

Once a CM class is full, we allow wiser to automatically work through the waitlist whenever a seat opens up.  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 the professor’s permission to add extra students, not everyone from the waitlist will be able to 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 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 for over enrollment issues.

–       The last day to add a course this semester is FEBRUARY 2. 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.

School Closing Updates for Add/Drop Date and Advising Hours

Since the campus is closed today, Tuesday January 27 due to the blizzard, the add/drop deadline will be extended.  However, the University has not determined what the new date will be yet, since there is still some uncertainty about exactly when we will re-open.  Once the new add/drop deadline has been determined, we will post it here on this blog.  In addition, the College of Management all day advising schedule will also be extended to the end of the add/drop period and we will update the schedule on our Walk-Ins page as well.  You can still make schedule changes on Wiser and complete our online registration request form in the meantime (though we will not be able to attend to those until campus reopens). Stay safe and warm in this storm.

Comments Off on Waitlists, Full Courses and YOU!

Waitlists, Full Courses and YOU!

Have you ever wondered how waitlists work on Wiser? We may have some answers for you right here!

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 multiple times a day.

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;
–           a hold preventing enrollment or registration changes
–          insufficient credits available for additional registration (the standard limit is 17 credits/semester)

Unfortunately, if a student is skipped by Wiser for theses reason, there is little to nothing 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 and be sure you have no conflicts that would prevent enrollment into a course for which you are on the waitlist.

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

The last day to add a course this semester is FEBRUARY 2. 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.
