Help! The class I need is full and I’m stuck on the wait-list!

If you are on a wait-list for a class you need for the upcoming quarter, don’t give up just yet! You may have a chance to get into the class. 

Are you a Candidate in the Interior Design Certificate Program? Are you an international student? Are you enrolled in Financial Aid?

If you answered yes to any of these three questions, then you have wait-list priority! Students with this criteria are automatically bumped to the top of the wait-list—above students who do not fit into these categories—in the order of date they are added.

What happens when you are offered a spot in the class for which you are wait-listed?

As spaces open, wait-listed students are contacted, granted Permission to Enroll (PTE), and provided enrollment instructions.

If you’re lucky enough to be offered a spot in a class you’ve been waiting for, grab it while you can! There are usually many other students on wait-lists and if you do not claim your PTE within a day or two of it being granted, then it will be revoked and the opportunity to enroll will be granted to the next person.

If the class that you were granted PTE for is the only class you want to take this quarter but you’ve already signed up for another class, call the Registration Office at (310) 825-9971 and transfer the payment from your unwanted class to the new class. Depending on the difference in course fees, additional payment may be needed or credit may be added to your student account.

What happens if you don’t receive PTE before the class starts?

You’re not out of luck just yet. Go to the first day of class! Students who do not show up to the class that they are wait-listed for will automatically lose their chance of getting into the class. If space becomes available, instructors typically grant permission to enroll for the wait-listed students who attended the first (and sometimes even second) class meeting.

Online classes are a little trickier. Sometimes online instructors will over-enroll the class to accommodate wait-listed students, so if you are in desperate need to enroll in a class, please let us know. Call (310) 825-9061 or email the Program Rep for the class.

Did you received PTE but no longer need or want to enroll in the class?

If you receive PTE but don’t need the class anymore, please contact the Arc+ID Program Rep for that class and let them know so they can revoke your PTE and remove you from the wait-list.

What happens if you don’t receive PTE at all?

Wait-listed students who remain unsuccessful at getting into the class they want are automatically sent an early notice of all sections of the same course offered in the upcoming term.

You can remove yourself from wait-lists at any time by calling (310) 825-9061.

To prevent yourself from getting on another wait-list, register for classes as soon as the registration period opens! Check the UCLA Extension Academic Calendar or the UCLA Extension catalog (inside the front cover) for registration dates!
