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.

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 email notification will be sent to the student’s COS email, 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 in person at the Admissions & Records office on the Weed or Yreka campuses.  If the waitlisted student tries to register for the 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. The automated waitlist process is discontinued the weekend before the first day of class.

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 48 hours to be added to the course.

Students may view their current waitlist positions and notification deadlines through Navigator by checking the Student Detail Schedule for the term on the Navigator portal Student tab.

Students are reminded to check their @ins.siskiyous.edu email often during registration. If you have trouble viewing your @ins.siskiyous.edu email, please contact the Student Help Desk, (530) 938-5523(530) 938-5523 or Student Help Desk.

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 the first day of class via email (email 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.
