Getting on a wait list

When adding yourself on a wait list for a class, it is important to remember the following:

  • Being on a wait list does NOT guarantee a seat.
  • Not all courses or sections will have a wait list enabled.
  1. Log into MyMadison, click the “Student” tab, then click on “Student Center.”
  2. Under the “Academics” tab, click “Search.”
  3. Enter your search criteria. Uncheck “Show Open Classes Only.” Courses with a green circle are open, blue square are closed, and yellow triangle are full with a wait list enabled.
  4. Click "Search."

 How to get on a wait list

  1. You have searched and located the class you wish to enroll.  
  2. If the class you want has a waitlist enabled, click “Select” to proceed.
  3. Check the box “Wait list if class is full.”  If this course is for “repeat” or “repeat forgive” credit, choose the appropriate drop down selection from “Repeat Code.”  *See important information on repeat options here.
  4. Click “Next.” Your course is now in your shopping cart.
  5. Click the “Enroll” tab, then click the “add” subtab.
  6. Click “Proceed To Step 2 Of 3.” Click “Finish Enrolling.”

 I'm wait-listed for a class, now what?

  1. When viewing your class schedule, the status will say “Waiting” if you successfully wait-listed a class.  
  2. You will be notified via email IF a seat becomes available. The message will either notify you that you have been registered, or it will instruct you to complete registration on MyMadison.
  3. You can drop a wait-listed course at any time.
Swapping a class

If the class you wish to swap into has a wait list, you can “swap” and join that wait list while remaining enrolled in your current class. Once it is your turn to be removed from the wait list, MyMadison will automatically drop your current course selection and enroll you in the new class.

  1. Log into MyMadison, click the “Student” tab, then click on “Student Center.”
  2. Under the “Academics” tab, click “My Academics.”
  3. “Click on the “Enroll” tab, then click on the “swap” tag.
  4. Under the “Swap This Class” section, choose the course you are willing to drop from your current schedule.
  5. Under the “With This Class” section, choose “Class Search” then click “Search.” If you know your specific class number, you can enter it in this section and skip to “Swapping Into A Class” below.
  6. Enter your search criteria. Uncheck “Show Open Classes Only.” Click “Search.”
  7. Find the course you would like to swap into. Click “Select.”
