Waitlists

Waitlists Available for Certain Courses

Have you ever tried to register for a course—only to find that the class section you want is full and has no more available seats?

Now you can put yourself on a waitlist for a class section that has no available seats. When registration opens April 15, the following courses will have the waitlist option on some sections:

  • ARTS-1301 Art Appreciation
  • ENGL-1301 English Composition I
  • ENGL-1302 English Composition II
  • GOVT-2305 Federal Government
  • GOVT-2306 Texas Government
  • HIST-1301 United States History I to 1876
  • HIST-1302 United States History Since 1876
  • KINE-1164 Intro to Physical Fitness & Wellness

What's a waitlist?

A waitlist is a way for you to have a chance to get a seat in a full class section—if a seat becomes available.

Eligible class sections will have a specific number of waitlist positions. Some sections of the above classes may not have a waitlist. You will be able to see which class sections have waitlists when you are in WebAdvisor schedule views.

If the class section you want is full and has a waitlist, you will see this link: Add to Waitlist. Select the link to put yourself on the waitlist for that class section.

How does a waitlist work?

Being on a waitlist does not guarantee a seat in your preferred full class section. It gives you a chance to get a seat in that class.

  1. Registration opens.
  2. Your first-choice class section for a course you need or want is full.
    • Add yourself to the waitlist if the class section has the option.
  3. Other class sections for the course you need or want are available.
    • Register for one of the available class sections—in addition to adding yourself to the waitlist for your first-choice class section—especially if it is a required course.
    • Being on a waitlist does not guarantee a seat in your preferred class section.
  4. A seat opens in your preferred class section.
    • If you are first on the waitlist when a seat opens, you will be notified through your MyTCC email account.
    • Registration is not automatic. You will have a 24-hour period to register, which will be noted in the email. If you don't register during the 24-hour period, your chance to register will go to the next student on the waitlist.;
    • Daily payment deadline applies. If you register but fail to meet payment requirements, your registration will be cancelled, and your chance to register will go to the next student on the waitlist.;
    • If you miss your waitlist registration opportunity, you are not automatically put back on the waitlist. You need to check Web Advisor to see if you can rejoin the waitlist.

When does the waitlist option end?

The waitlist feature is deactivated 10 days before the end of registration.

For Summer 2016, waitlists will no longer be available after May 14, 2016.
