The following information outlines the current Department of Accounting "Waiting List" policy and procedures for students looking to add into closed course sections (courses that have reached expected enrollment capacities).

  • Because students can submit a Closed Section “Waiting List Form” for a course section that is neither closed nor full (a process the department has no control over), be advised that a Waiting List Form submitted to the Dept. of Accounting for a course section that is not closed (or not full) will not be accepted and will be considered invalid and discarded.
  • Completed (submitted) Waiting List Forms are automatically routed via email to the department for processing. Submissions to the Dept of Accounting for course sections are accepted on a case by case basis. Provide reason for request for an online section in the 'Comment' section of the waiting list. Exceptions are Online Program students and current semester graduates.
  • Enrollment levels for closed course sections are checked frequently. Waiting list students are emailed as openings occur (as seats become available).
  • When a seat opens up in a course section we will automatically place you into the class. Please check your email periodically to see if we have contacted you. 
  • It is your responsibility to notify our office, in a timely manner, if you want to be removed from a specific waiting list.
  • Seats in these sections, in which you receive the “See Online Advisor” message, are primarily reserved for “online-only” students. However, if you are not an online-only student and would like an opportunity to enroll in an online section, please sign the wait list for the course of interest. Under the COMMENT section, at the bottom of the wait-list, please provide an explanation of why your situation is such that a face-to-face section is not feasible for you.
