How does Wait List Notification work?
When a seat becomes available, the student at the top of the wait list will be granted an offer to register in the course section. Students must check the Wait List Status web page within SISWeb to determine whether they have received notice of an offer to register. We recommend checking at least twice per day. The Wait List Status web page will be updated every half hour from 6:00 A.M. to 2:00 A.M. daily so the more often you check the better.
For your convenience, an email will be sent to your SOU email account but the official wait list notification is provided via the Wait List Status page in SISWeb.
If you want a seat in the wait listed class, you must register in the course section by the date and time indicated on the Wait List Status page; you will not be registered automatically. If you do not register by the deadline, your seat will be offered to the next person on the wait list and you will be moved to the bottom of the wait list. If you no longer want to remain on the wait list, drop the course section via SISWeb.
If you are not registered for the course section prior to the first day of the term, you must attend class and obtain the instructor's approval to register.
