Waitlisting for a course

The automated waitlist process provides students the opportunity to enroll in closed sections of a course as space becomes available. When a space becomes available, the student will receive an email notification through their MyCCRI account that a seat is now available and that the student is now eligible to register for the course.

Students are NOT automatically added to the course. They must register for the course within the time frame indicated in the email notification by logging to their MyCCRI account and registering for the available seat. If the student DOES NOT register within that time frame, the available seat goes to the next person on the waitlist. The student will have to re-add them self to the waitlist to get another chance. Please check your MyCCRI email frequently during the registration period.
