ATTN: INSTRUCTORS OF FALL 2021 COURSES WITH ESTHER WAITISTS
If you are receiving this e-mail, you are an instructor of at least one Fall 2021 course with an ESTHER waitlist.
The ESTHER waitlists have been active for your course(s) since the publishing of the Fall 2021 Course Schedule approximately five months ago. As a reminder of the process with ESTHER waitlists: For courses with ESTHER waitlists, the waitlist will remain in effect through Week 1 of the semester, but will be automatically removed for Week 2 (at 12:01AM on Monday of Week 2).*
Simply put, for courses with ESTHER Waitlists: Week 1, waitlist ON; Week 2 and 3*, waitlist OFF.
* Reminder (Notice): For Fall 2021-only, the Add deadline was extended from Week 2 (Friday, Sept 3rd) to Week 3 (Friday, Sept 10)
For the Fall 2021 semester - for courses with ESTHER Waitlists:
—> Week 1 (Monday 08/23 - Sunday 08/29): Waitlist ON;
—> Weeks 2 & 3 (Monday 08/30 - Friday 09/10): Waitlist OFF;
* COLL 100-199 and all LPAP courses are excluded; ESTHER waitlists will remain active throughout the full registration period for those courses.
NOTE: Each semester as part of the building of the university's Course Schedule, instructors and departments are able to determine registration restrictions for their courses, determine if they want to utilize ESTHER waitlists, etc. Less than 20% utilize waitlists and even fewer have waitlist activity. We send this reminder each semester that for courses with ESTHER Waitlists: Week 1, waitlist ON; Week 2, waitlist OFF.
Thank you . . .
