Some classes have automated wait lists. Not all classes are assigned wait lists. The length of a wait list varies. The length of a wait list for a class is determined by the department/program.
When students attempt to register for full classes that have wait lists, they are offered the opportunity to be placed on a wait list. Students are placed on the wait list on a first-come, first-served basis. Students can be on a total of no more than two wait lists at a time.
Once a class has an active wait list, all regular registration activity for that class stops. As other students drop these classes, wait-listed students are automatically registered into available class openings from the wait list in the order they were received.
It is the student’s responsibility to track their status to see if they have been moved from the wait list to registration in the class. When a student is moved from a wait list into a class, they are notified through their TCC email account.
Wait lists are frozen the last business day prior to the start of a quarter. Students who have not been registered into a class by this point are encouraged to attend the first day of class to see if the instructor will permit an overload. Refer to myTCC for more detailed information.
