Fall 2022 Courses with ESTHER Waitlists

From the Office of the Registrar (OTR) ...


If you are receiving this e-mail, you are an instructor of at least one Fall 2022 course with an ESTHER waitlist.

The ESTHER waitlists have been active for your course(s) since the publishing of the Fall 2022 Course Schedule last March. They have remained in effect through continuing student registration (in April), throughout the summer, and now through O-Week and new student registration. If or when a seat opened in your class, the student highest on the waitlist would have been systematically provided a 24-hour window to register for the course (shifting to a 12-hour window beginning the first day of class (Week 1) of the Fall semester).

—> This is a reminder that for all courses with ESTHER waitlists, those electronic waitlists will remain in effect through Week 1 of the semester, but will be automatically removed for Week 2 (at 12:01 AM on Monday of Week 2).*

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 ESTHER 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.

* COLL and LPAP courses are excluded; ESTHER waitlists will remain active throughout the full registration period for those courses.

Thank you . . .
