Who Received This Email?
We sent this email at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 4, 2021, to students who were on a waitlist for one or more Spring 2021 8-Wk Session 2 classes.

Dear [first],

You're still on a class waitlist for 8-Wk Session 2, which begins next Wednesday, March 10, 2021. If you don't see this class on your class schedule in Buff Portal, make sure the waitlist toggle is turned on.

While you're on the waitlist:

  • Because you aren't enrolled in the class yet, you won't be charged tuition for it and it won't count toward your enrollment status (e.g., full time, half time).
  • You will, however, appear on the class roster and have access to the online class materials until waitlists are canceled.
  • If you're retaking the course for grade replacement, we won't process your grade replacement request form until you're enrolled.

Check Your Waitlist Position

On the First Day of Class

Hybrid In-Person Classes

You should receive guidance from the instructor on what to do if you're still waitlisted on the first day of class. If you don't, we encourage you to email the instructor, but do not attend in-person class. Instructional spaces have been evaluated for the maximum number of students they can hold while maintaining safety and physical distancing.

Remote & Hybrid Remote/Online Classes

Attend the first remote class meeting and tell the instructor you're on the waitlist. They may be able to advise you on your chances of being enrolled from the waitlist and whether you should continue to attend the class meetings.

What Happens Next

If a seat becomes available in your waitlisted class before 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, the next eligible waitlisted student will be enrolled automatically and will receive an email confirmation within 24 hours.

On Friday, March 12, waitlists are canceled. If you still aren't enrolled, you'll lose access to the class's online materials and be removed from the class roster. However, you may be eligible to use course reservation the next time that course is offered to guarantee yourself a seat.
