Waitlist Procedure

When a class fills to capacity, it is considered “closed.” A computerized waitlist will be established to determine in which sequence students may be added to the class if space becomes available. Instructors have no control of the waitlist until the first day of class so please do not email asking for admittance prior to the first day of the class.

When a student registers as waitlisted, a position on the waitlist is assigned in a first-come, first-served order.  When a seat becomes available, an automated e-mail notification will be sent to the student’s COS e-mail, to the first student on the list.  Students will be given 48 hours to register for the waitlisted class.  After this deadline has passed and the student has not registered, the next student on the list will be notified of the available seat.  If you miss your time slot you will need to get back on the waitlist.

In order to register for the course, the student must register through Navigator or at Enrollment Services office on the Weed or Yreka campuses..  If the waitlisted student tries to register for the waitlisted course and encounters a registration error (prerequisite, time conflict, etc.), the student’s priority on the waitlist is maintained through the 48-hour deadline to give them time to rectify the error so make sure that all prerequisites are established and balances have been paid.

Please Note: K-12 Special Admits can not register online. They must download an Add/Drop form and email or fax it in with the permission email within the 48hours to be added to the course.
Student Detail Schedule path
Students may view their current waitlist positions and notification deadlines through Navigator by checking the Student Detail Schedule for the term (see image at right for location of this option) on the Navigator portal home tab.

Students are reminded to check their @ins.siskiyous.edu e-mail often during registration (from the envelope iconemailin Navigator). If you have trouble viewing your @ins.siskiyous.edu e-mail, please send an e-mail to the Computer Lab.

If you are still on the waitlist the first day of class, you must attend the first class meeting for instructor approval to register for the class; for online classes you must contact the instructor on first day of class via e-mail (e-mail addresses for all online instructors are available on the Online Courses page).  At the first meeting, the instructor will determine if waitlisted students may be added to the class.
