Wait Lists

Some courses will have electronic wait lists. When viewing the schedule of courses, courses that have a number greater than 0 in the wait list capacity column “WL Cap”, have a wait list.  The wait list actual column “WL Act” will show the number of students on the wait list and the wait list remaining column “WL Rem” will indicate the number of seats open on a wait list.  Wait lists will be removed starting the first day of class.  Below are step-by-step instructions based on your options.

If there are seats available in the “WL Rem” column, you can add yourself to the wait list by following the steps below.

  1. Login to the Southeast Portal at https://portal.semo.edu
  2. Click the Students SS Tab
  3. Locate the "Registration Tools" box
  4. Click "Add/Drop Classes"
  5. Select the Current Term
  6. Type your alternate pin, then click "Submit"
  7. In the registration screen, there is a worksheet which is a series of small boxes. Type the CRN number in the first box.  You can find the CRN number (5-digit blue number) listed next to the section of the course you want on the course schedule.
  8. Click Submit Changes.
  9. You’ll receive a Registration Add Error. There will be a drop-down box with the option of “**Web Wait Listed**.  Choose this option and then click Submit Changes button.
  10. The course should then be listed with the other courses on your schedule.

 

If a seat opens in the course, the first person on the list is notified through their Southeast email and has 48 hours to enroll.  If they do not enroll, they are dropped from the wait list and the next person is notified.  This process continues until someone enrolls or until there isn’t anyone left on the wait list.  If this happens, the seat opens to anyone.  Therefore, it’s important to check your Southeast email daily because you’ll only have 48 hours to enroll.
