Wait lists and changing courses


If a course is full, you'll receive an error message after trying to register for it. If there is space available on the wait list, there will be an option on the left of this error message for you to add yourself to the wait list for this course.

How do I add myself to the waitlist? 

Select WtList from the drop-down menu and select Submit again. The course will appear in your Current Schedule section of the Add/Drop Classes page, with a Wait Listed status, but the course won't appear on your Schedule by Day & Time page until you are actually registered for the course.

Keep checking your registration status page to see if permission has been granted. It's your responsibility to register for the course from the wait list. Receiving permission to register from the wait list does not automatically register you in the course.

Once you've received permission, you have three days to register. If you don't register within that timeframe, you'll be removed from the wait list and another student will be offered the available spot.

To register for a course after you've received permission, you will need to first drop the class and then add it again by entering the CRN on the Add/Drop Courses page on Dal Online.

For more detailed instructions, see Dal Online's Help.

Can I change courses after they start?

It is not uncommon for students to make changes to their registration in the early part of the term. Course changes will normally be completed during the first two weeks of classes. You can change courses through Dal Online.
