2. Under Resources, select Self-Service Course Registration

3. Select Register for Classes

4. Enter the Term and Pin to continue  

5. Enter the Subject and/or Course Number and search 

6. You can see that there is a wait-list and there is still space remaining on the wait-list by viewing the status field

 

7. Select the Add button to the right of the course you would like to register for.

8. On the list of options within the pull-down menu, select “Wait-List” as your option, then click on “Submit Changes”. This should successfully add you to the wait-list.

Register After an Opening 

Once you have successfully wait-listed for a course, be sure to check your SJU email frequently so that you are aware if a seat becomes available. You will automatically receive an email if a seat becomes available. This window of opportunity is time sensitive.

Once notified that you are eligible to register for a course for which you have wait-listed please proceed accordingly:

1. Go to the Nest and click on Students in the top right corner 

2. Under Resources, select Self-Service Course Registration

3. Select Register for Classes

4. Enter the Term and Pin

5. View your courses in the bottom right corner of the page

6. From the drop down menu of the class for which you are wait-listed, select "Web Registered". If you do not want to add the class for which you are wait-listed, from the drop down menu,  please select "Drop Course" now to allow others the opportunity.

 

Please note: In order to successfully add your wait-listed course, you must take into consideration the maximum allowed credits per semester.  If adding this course will put you over this limit you must DROP one of your currently registered courses to allow the wait-listed course to be added.

If you do not have the option to add the course for which you received notification:

  • Confirm that your window of time has not expired
    • If you missed the window of opportunity you will need to add yourself back onto the wait-list if available
  • Confirm that your course load does not exceed your maximum number of credits
  • Confirm there is not a time conflict between the course you are already registered for and the wait-listed course
