Waitlisting a Class

Waitlisting allows students to virtually line-up for a seat in a course that has been filled up and receive a notification if a seat opens.

How it works

  • If a seat becomes available, the first student on the waitlist will receive notice to their RCBC email.
  • The first student will be given a short deadline after which the next student on the waitlist will be offered the seat.


  • Joining a waitlist offers a place in line. There is no guarantee a seat will be available.
  • Students must monitor their RCBC email account daily so they can act when a seat becomes available. This keeps the list moving for everyone else.
  • Be sure you are eligible for the course before joining a waitlist. You will not be able to register if you haven’t met the course prerequisites or if your account has a hold.
