How to Add a Course from the Wait List

 

Most class sections, when full, have the option of an automated wait list.

PART ONE:

3. Click on Registration/ Add/Drop/ Search Classes in the My Registration Channel

4. Select a Term and Submit

8. In the Action box, click on the drop down arrow and select Wait Listed and click on Submit Changes

9. Review your current schedule – status should say Wait Listed

10. If correct, click on Finalize Registration

11. You do not pay any fees associated with a course in which you are in wait listed status

12. To view your wait list position: While still logged into myHancock Click on the Student Tab Click on My Waitlist Position in the My Registration Channel View the course, the date you added to the wait list, and the wait list number

PART TWO:

Once you are waitlisted, it is your responsibility to check your myHancock email account at least once daily.

1. Log into myHancock and Click on the email icon.

2. If space becomes available before the first class meeting of the course, you will receive a notification that room has become available in the course.

3. You only have 24 hours from when the email was sent to you to add the course.

4. Should you not add the course within the 24 hour time frame, your name will automatically be removed from the wait list and a notification will be sent via email.

PART THREE:

To add a course in which you have received notification you must act within the 24 hour time frame. These instructions are valid before the course begins:

1. Log into myHancock

2. Click on the Student Tab

3. Click on Registration/ Add/Drop/Search Classes in the My Registration Channel

4. Select a Term and Submit

5. Find the course located in your current schedule – do NOT enter the CRN

6. In the action box located next to the course, select Register Via Web and click on Submit Changes

7. Review your current schedule – status should say Registered Via Web

8. If correct, click on Finalize Registration and proceed to pay fees

9. Submit all fees associated within the allotted time frame

10. Failure to pay fees will result in a drop for failure to pay and you will not automatically be added to the wait list again.

PART FOUR:

Wait listed students who have not received notification of space availability prior to the first day of the term, must attend the first class session to be considered for a seat in the course.  If the class is an online class, it is up to the student to contact the instructor via email to request an add code, .prior to the first day of the semester.

Students who do not initiate contact with the instructor on the first day the class is taught will not automatically receive an add code.

Issuing of Add Authorization codes is strictly up to the individual instructor who is teaching the specific class.  Instructors are not required  to issue add codes, even if the student received the wait list notification email after classes have begun.

Add codes are not valid for use until the first day of class.

All registration adds must be processed by the last day to add for each individual CRN, even if students obtain an add authorization code.  Failure to add by the deadline results in missing the opportunity to register for that particular class during that semester or term.
