Initial wait list settings are done on the class level, but once registration begins should be managed in SSOL. By design, student transactions in SSOL waitlists can only be initiated by the students themselves. As administrators, we cannot place students onto an SSOL waitlist, change the order or sequence of students on a waitlist, or consolidate separate waitlists.
Departments should alert ineligible enrollees that they will be dropped from a course roster. Unlike waitlist transactions, students may be dropped from rosters--write to the Student Service Center ([email protected]) or the Office of the Registrar ([email protected]) to request that ineligible students be removed from rosters.
