How it Works
No More Crashing
Add codes have been replaced with the Wait List. Students can enroll in any open seats through the fifth day* of classes. No add codes and no crashing required.
*The fifth-day rule applies to fall and spring semesters only. The timeline is different for summer session.
Manage Your Wait List, Not Your Add Codes
Since the Wait List is automated, students and faculty must actively monitor and manage their wait lists. A student's ranking on a course section's wait list may change at any time depending on other students who are added or removed from the wait list or faculty adding seats to their course sections.
Faculty will no longer distribute add codes to individual students. Faculty can add students through the enrollment management tools in SDSU WebPortal by selecting the number of students to add to course sections. Student information remains anonymous until after students are added to the course section.
The Wait List ranking is calculated based on completion of prerequisites for the course, a student’s units earned, and if the student already is enrolled in a section for that class. The Wait List ranking is subject to change at any time throughout the registration and schedule adjustment period.
