JSOM Waitlist

When a course reaches its enrollment capacity, we are unable to register additional students in the closed section. However, you can add your name to the JSOM Waitlist in case a space becomes available. Please review the guidelines listed below before joining a JSOM Waitlist.

  • JSOM Waitlist is available for JSOM sections only.
  • Galaxy will indicate that a JSOM section has a waitlist available by displaying a yellow triangle as the class status. A student interested in the section can choose to add themselves to the section’s waitlist through Galaxy.
  • JSOM Waitlist does not guarantee registration.
  • If a spot opens up in the section:
    • The system will automatically register the student at the top of the waitlist as long as there are no holds or registration blocks.
    • An email will be sent out to the student if registration was successful.
  • Students already registered in a course cannot be on a waitlist for the same course different section. The system will remove these students from the waitlist.
  • Each group of cross-listed courses will share one waitlist per section.
  • JSOM Waitlist deadlines are viewable on the Academic Calendar.

Online core MBA courses: If you are an online student looking to register in an online core MBA course, please contact JSOM Academic Advising.
