Waitlisting is a process where you can “wait in line” electronically for a full class. Being on a waitlist does not guarantee that you will be able to register for the class, but it does allow you to wait for a seat to become available without having to constantly check the status on the class schedule.
When the course has reached its maximum enrollment capacity and has a waitlist available, students will encounter an error and may choose to join the waitlist.
- The waitlist could be full. Try another section or try again later.
- The class may not have a waitlist available.
- You may not meet the requirements to be added to the waitlist. Check with your advisor to make sure you are eligible to take the class.
Waitlisted classes with available seating will give priority to those already on the waitlist.
No. Being on a waitlist does not guarantee registration. By joining a waitlist for a class you may be offered a seat in a class if one becomes available. Waitlisting does not guarantee a seat.
- Open - ## Waitlisted | Closed - ## Waitlisted -
The class has reached its enrollment max, but there are available spots on the waitlist.
Any seats that become available will be offered to students on the waitlist. The ## shows the number of students on the waitlist.
- Open – Waitlist Filled | Closed – Waitlist Full -
The class AND the waitlist are full. Any seats that become available will be offered to students on the waitlist.
- Other registration errors -
You may encounter other errors when you join a waitlist or register for a class from the waitlist. See Registration Help or call your advising center or Enrollment Services for assistance.
Go to the Student Detail Schedule in ASAP. For classes you have waitlisted, you will see a section for Waitlist Position. The smaller the number, the closer you are to the top of the waitlist. If your number is 0, you have been notified that a seat is available - the Notification Expires section has a date and time you must register by to accept the seat. For more information, see the Directions or Tutorial on the Waitlist website.
Yes, you can be on more than one waitlist, for different courses or even for different sections of the same course. However, you can only be REGISTERED for one section of a class at a time. Once you are registered for a course you intend to keep, you should remove yourself from any waitlisted sections of the course to allow other students a chance to waitlist.
Via email to your UTSA preferred email address, as selected on ASAP. Make sure your preferred email is correct in ASAP, any spam filters allow UTSA emails, and be sure to check your email & junk email daily.
You can sign up on the waitlist again; however, you will start at the bottom of the list. If you have questions, you can contact Enrollment Services. If you’d like to discuss an alternative schedule, please contact your advisor.
Waitlisting is only available during the regular registration period. You can check for open seats in the class during late registration or see the department about adding the class. You should also review the class schedule for alternative courses that may be offered, or ask your advisor about other course options.
First come, first served (as student classification groups are able to register). See the registration schedule for specific dates.
Tuition and fees will be assessed AFTER you have actually registered for the course. Waitlisted courses do not count as attempted, enrolled, or earned hours towards your enrollment status UNTIL you officially register for the course.
No, waitlisted courses do not count for any hours – attempted, enrolled, or earned UNTIL you officially register for the course.
Departments determine the waitlist maximum for each class. The waitlist maximum for each class will be displayed on the schedule of classes.
Waitlisting will be available for select classes across UTSA. The schedule of classes will indicate if a waitlist is available in the WL columns. Classes with a waitlist option will also have a “W” in the notes section of the schedule.
Individual departments will decide if they will offer a waitlist option. A department may elect not to offer a waitlist, or the class may have restrictions that prevent the use of a waitlist.
You must have completed all prerequisites for the course and meet any restrictions for the class in order to join a waitlist. For example, if you successfully waitlisted for a class, yet are not eligible to register for the class, you will receive errors – even if you have been notified that a seat is available for you. Check the Class Schedule and the Catalog for more information on prerequisites and course restrictions.
Yes, the course will be on your schedule with a registration status of “Waitlist”. You can see your waitlisted classes and your position in line for each waitlist you are on. You will not be charged for the course until you are officially registered. A waitlist status does NOT mean you are registered for the course.
Waitlisting will only be available during priority and regular registration – not Late Registration. For Spring 2013 registration, waitlisting will be offered November 1, 2012 through January 3, 2013.
You may add yourself to a waitlist or register from a waitlist until the last day of regular registration; the 24 hour notification timeframe does not apply on the last day. Anyone remaining on a waitlist will be removed before late registration begins. See your department or advisor if you need help.
- Be aware of any holds you may have on your record, both current and in the future. Most holds will prevent you from waitlisting and registering, even if you have received an email notification.
- Check your email daily! Notifications will be sent to your preferred email address, as selected on ASAP.
- Be considerate! Remove yourself from a waitlist if you no longer want the class so that others have an opportunity to join the waitlist.
No, if you receive an email notification when a seat becomes available, you will have to login to ASAP to register before the 24 hour deadline.
You have 24 hours to register after you are notified. Your email notification will specify when your time to register will expire. If you do not register during this timeframe, you will be removed from the waitlist, and you will need to add yourself to the waitlist again, where you will be at the bottom of the list.
- Login to ASAP
- Go to the Registration page
- Select **Web Registered** from the ACTION for the selected class
- Click Submit
- Once the page has refreshed, verify that the class is now showing as **Web Registered** on your Current Schedule and no registration errors have appeared.

The waitlisted class will be dropped from your Add/Drop Class and Detailed Class Schedule pages in ASAP if you do not register before the deadline. The class may be displayed in your registration record for up to one hour after your notification expires.
No, but you will not be able to register for the class if the time conflict has not been resolved. Any expected registration errors should be taken care of ahead of time.
You should remove your name from the waitlist so that others can waitlist. To drop yourself from a waitlist, log into ASAP, go to your registration page, select “DROP” from the ACTION drop-down menu for the waitlisted class, and click “Submit”. For detailed directions, please visit the Waitlist website.
If this occurred during registration time, most likely you were notified by email that you could register and failed to do so by the deadline. Remember, waitlisting is NOT an automatic process. If late registration has started, waitlisting has ended and all students still on a waitlist have been dropped.
You can try another section, keep checking the waitlist, see your advisor about a possible schedule change, or see the department if the waitlisting timeframe has ended.
See your advisor or Enrollment Services for assistance or add yourself back to the waitlist.
Yes, within the hour, the first seven students on the waitlist will be notified of the available seats. If there are only six students on the waitlist, all six are notified and seats are reserved for them for the 24 hour notification timeframe; the seventh seat will be available for any student, who will not encounter a waitlist and will be able to immediately register.
Waitlisting ends when registration ends, prior to the first payment deadline. Anyone still on the waitlist after that date will be removed prior to the start of late registration, regardless of payment status.
No, only you can add yourself to a waitlist. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor or Enrollment Services.
Each department reserves the right to manage its waitlists. See the department of the course for assistance.
