Waitlist Instructions

HOW TO WAITLIST FOR A COURSE

If the course you selected is closed (C) but has a waitlist for your student population, you will be able to add yourself to the waitlist.

Log in to MyAccess.

  1. Select the “Student Services” tab.
  2. Select the “Registration” tab.
  3. Select the “Term” link.  A scroll down box will appear and you may  select the term you would like to register for and then click the “Submit” button.
  4. Select the “Registration (Add or Drop Courses)”  tab and TYPE the CRN  in the text boxes in the Worksheet.
  5. If a course you selected is closed (C) but has a waitlist for your student population, you will be able to add yourself to the waitlist by selecting "waitlist" from the Action drop down menu.

  •  (C) Indicates that the course is closed;  you may not register because the class is full.  If a class is closed (C), but there is a waitlist for your population, you may add yourself to the waitlist for that class by typing the CRN. 
  • If a class is closed (C) and does not have a waitlist for your population, you will not be able to add yourself to a waitlist. 

​****If are having issues adding to the waitist, please remember to follow the instructions carefully. You must type the CRN into the worksheet. ****


Note: If you were on the waitlist (WL) and you did not claim your seat, you may need to wait 24 hours before putting yourself back on the waitlist. In order to expedite this process, log into MyAccess, drop yourself from the WL (which expired)  and place yourself on the WL again for that class. Please contact registration@georgetown.edu if you have questions.

Important waitlist information

The waitlist will run each week day at 3 PM during registration (excluding holidays). Winners will receive an email from the University Registrar with instructions to claim their seat through MyAccess within 24 hours. After 24 hours, non-responsive students will lose their seat and will  forfeit that seat to the next student on the waitlist. Therefore, waitlisted students must check email at least once per day even throughout the summer.  Please be sure to drop from the waitlist, any class which you no longer want, so that others will be considered in the waitlist process.

****Note: Faculty reserve the right to drop students from the waitlist, if they do not attend class during the Add Drop period at the beginning of the term.***
