If you cannot locate your advisor, contact your department chairperson (CAS & GPS) or your associate dean (other colleges). Law and Evening students, and non-degree seeking students are not required to meet with an advisor and your access will be automatically activated and you may register through LORA at your appropriate time.

You are placed on the wait list in the order of your request.  If a seat becomes available and you are next on the list, you will be added to the course. Note: If a course becomes available and you have added another course at the same time, your wait listed course will take precedent over the course it is conflicting with and that course will be dropped.  Also, you cannot wait list for one section of a course and be registered in a different section nor can you wait list for multiple sections of the same course.
