Helpful Hints

  • When adding a class with a lab, be sure to click both the class and the lab before clicking submit.
  • If registration errors occur, check out the Registration Errors Legend and Waitlist Information.
  • Check out the Important Dates page for Add, Drop, and Withdraw Deadlines.
  • Contact the Registrar's Office for further assistance if needed.

Before waitlisting for a class, it is suggested to look up alternative day/times or alternative courses needed for your degree.

To waitlist for a class:

  • Click on 'Look Up Classes'
  • Select your criteria, and click Submit.
  • Find your course and memorize/write down the CRN. This is the five-digit number in the first column of the page. In summer it will start with a 1 (example, 14324); Fall with a 2 (example, 25490); Spring with a 4 (example, 46392).
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and select 'Add to Worksheet'.
  • At the bottom of the page, type in the CRN's.
  • Click 'Submit Changes'.
  • Scroll to the course, change the Action to 'Waitlist'.
  • Click 'Submit Changes'.
  • Review your schedule to ensure you have been waitlisted for the class.

IMPORTANT: Once waitlisted, it is your responsibility to check your Colorado Mesa University e-mail for notification when the class opens. The system will send you an e-mail within 10 minutes of an opening if you are first on the waitlist. Prior to the first week of class, you will have 72 hours to add the class. The week before classes begin the time limit drops to 48 hours. Once class starts, you will only have 24 hours to add. If you do not take action, you will be removed from the waitlist and the seat will be offered to the next person on the list. There may be occasions when you receive the email, but the class has closed in the interim. This could be due to corrections, administrative processing, a faculty signed add slip, or your time limit expired. In these cases, you will need to re-add yourself to the waitlist or contact the Registrar's Office for options.

During the winter and summer breaks, the Registrar's Office reserves the right to process the waitlist as needed to assist with enrollment. Prior to the first day of class, it is your responsibility to check your schedule to make sure you are enrolled in the courses you desire.

Classes with labs - The Registrar's Office processes all waitlists for classes with labs due to complications when only one of the two classes opens. The open spaces are given to the first person that can successfully register for both the class and lab. The Friday before classes start, the waitlist will be cleared to best ensure open classes fill. To enroll in classes with labs the first week, a student may choose from the open sections.

By adding or waitlisting for a class, you are responsible for payment of any new tuition charges. For detailed payment/billing information please visit the Business Office or call 970-248-1567.
