Find online classes that are not full

When you are planning your schedule before the start of a term, you might find the advanced course search very useful. It will let you look up classes based on their instructional method (classroom, online,etc.), date and time, and other important factors. These instructions will show you how to find an online class and determine if there is any space left in the class.

    Click on Look Up Classes partway down the list of options.

  3. Select Term Details

    list of courses with details
    You can view the course number, course title, credit amount, instructor name, and so on. Let’s take a closer look at the seat and waitlist capacity of classes:

    • CAP: Capacity of the class. The Economics classes in our example can have 35 students.
    • ACT: Shows how many seats are taken.
    • REM: Shows the remaining seats available in the class.
    • WL CAP: The waitlist capacity is the number of students who can be on the waitlist for that class.
    • WL ACT: The number of people that are on the waitlist.
    • WL REM: The remaining space left on the waitlist of the class. If this is zero, you will not be able to register for the class.
  7. Register for a class

    After deciding on which class(es) you wish to register for, click on the check box to the left of those class(es). Click the Submit button to register.

Note: After the term starts, you will not be able to register for the course or add yourself to the waitlist. You will need to contact the instructor for an override after the first day of the term.

Do not forget to attend your class in the first day to be sure you are not dropped for No Show.
