Admissions & Records Frequently Asked Questions

What if the Class is Full?

If the class is full at the time of registration, a limited number of students can place themselves on a wait list. This list allows a student to potentially add the course at a later date (if a space becomes available). Getting on a wait list does not enroll the students in a class. If a space becomes available the student will be notified via their campus email address and their student portal.  The student will then have about 72 hours from their initial email notification to add themselves to the course.  Failure to add themselves on time will result in removal from the wait list. If a student makes it to the wait list but is not offered a seat in the class, the wait list is used to establish a priority for adding the class. In this case, students must attend the first class meeting, obtain an “add authorization code” from the instructor, and process the add authorization code via their Mt. SAC portal prior to the codes expiration date.
