Get on the waitlist by using WebAdvisor (look for the "Waitlist" action when registering). If you require in-person assistance, we would be happy to assist you at one of our lobby computers. If the waitlist is full, keep checking back to try to get on it.
If space becomes available and you are the next person on the waitlist, you will be eligible to register in that class section.
Notice that we said "eligible to register". You are not automatically registered when space opens up. Instead we give you 5 calendar days from the time space becomes available to register. If you fail to register during this window, we will drop you from the waitlist.
It is your responsibility to monitor your position on the waitlist and to register if a space becomes available to you. To monitor your position on the waitlist, use the Manage My Waitlist function of WebAdvisor. If your status reads "Permission" you are eligible to register for the class.
WebAdvisor may not let you register if you are repeating a course, don't meet the prerequisites, or the class overlaps with another. Contact us at (831) 479-6100 to see if you need to register in person.
As a courtesy, we will notify you by email when you become eligible to register for the section. Do we have your correct email address? Change it using either WebAdvisor or a Change of Information Form.
You might still have a chance! Attend the first class session and talk with the instructor. If there's room, obtain an add code from the instructor and use it to register for the class in WebAdvisor. Click here for help using Add Codes.
WebAdvisor will only allow you to register online if you have permission in both co-requisite courses. If you gained permission to register in a lecture course with a lab co-requisite with no open seats, you MUST register for both sections in-person at an Admissions & Records Office. If you received permission to register in the lab section with a lecture co-requisite with no open seats, you will not be allowed to register unless a lecture seat becomes available. Examples of this situation are Spanish 1 with a lab co-requisite of Spanish 51L and English 1A with a lab co-requisite of Library 10.
No. In Addition, you may not be registered in one class section and waitlisted for another class section of the same course, even in two different terms. For example, if you are on the waitlist for BIO 6 for the summer term and you then register for BIO 6 in the fall, you will be dropped from the summer waitlist.
