Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Once class enrollment reaches its limit, a waitlist is opened. Students on most waitlists are automatically enrolled as space becomes available. If you are moved off the waitlist, you will receive an email. However, the best way to monitor your enrollment and any enrollment changes is to log in to CalCentral and check your schedule under the “My Academics” Tab.
How to Check Status: Students are responsible for monitoring the waitlist status via CalCentral. If you no longer want to wait for space to open in a waitlisted class, you must drop the waitlisted class. Students continue to be automatically enrolled from the waitlist through the second week of the session and will be charged for the tuition once enrolled.
Important Notice: Notification about the change in waitlist position or being enrolled in the class from the waitlist is only sent to the berkeley.edu account. It is strongly encouraged that email forwarding is set up from the berkeley.edu account to an email account you check daily so that you do not miss the waitlist notification.
