Waitlisting on WebAdvisor
If you attempt to register for a class that is full, you may have the option to add that class to your Waitlist. Students can add classes to their waitlist on WebAdvisor, by phone, or in person once a class has reached its maximum capacity. Once a waitlist has begun, students will be required to waitlist a class even if it appears that there are spaces available.
Important Things to Know about Waitlisting
- For the Spring 2015 semester, all waitlists expire at 7pm Thursday December 11th. Beginning 8am Friday December 12th, registration is on a first come, first serve basis for courses with seat openings. Students must be registered prior to the first class meeting - there is No Late Registration.
- The Waitlist process runs every day of the week. If the college is closed and permission is granted, registration may be completed through WebAdvisor (with Phlebotomy as the exception).
**Students are urged to use the "Manage My Waitlist" function on WebAdvisor as the primary way of monitoring the waitlist.**
- Students can sign up for the waitlist on WebAdvisor, in person, or by phone once a class is full.
- If a class displays a status of Waitlisted, students must add the class to their waitlist even if there appears to be spaces available.
- Students must be able to access their IVCC student email account in order to participate in Waitlisting.
- Waitlists will be run every day at 5 am. An email will be sent to the IVCC email account at this time if granted permission to register.
- Once granted permission to register to register, students have three days to register. Permission expires at 11:58pm on the third day.
- Students who do not register within this timeframe will lose their permission to register and be removed from the waitlist.
- Students registering through the waitlist must abide by the payment deadlines or will be dropped for non-payment.
- For students receiving permission to register in ALH 1250
(Phlebotomy): you must complete the Phlebotomy registration process by calling
the Admissions & Records Office at 815-224-0447 during normal business hours. This
must be completed within the timeframe stated in the "Permission to
Register" email. Online registration is not permitted for
Phlebotomy. It is highly recommended that Phlebotomy students check their
waitlist status DAILY. Failure to do so may result in the inability to register
within the allotted timeframe.
- There is a limit to how many students can be waitlisted for a section. For most classes, the maximum is 50% of the section capacity. ALH-1214 is an exception.
- Students cannot waitlist a course in which they are currently registered.
- Students cannot waitlist multiple sections of the same course.
- Students must be registered prior to the first class meeting-regardless of when permission is granted. No late registration allowed.
Students are encouraged to monitor WebAdvisor daily for the most up to date course availability.
DUE TO DEMAND, ADDITIONAL SECTIONS OF CERTAIN COURSES MAY BE ADDED AT ANY TIME AT THE DISCRETION OF THE DIVISION DEAN. IF YOU ARE WAITLISTED ON A SECTION OF A COURSE AND A NEW SECTION OF THAT COURSE IS ADDED, YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF REMOVING YOURSELF FROM YOUR WAITLISTED SECTION AND ENROLLING IN THE ADDED SECTION, SCHEDULE PERMITTING. PLEASE CHECK WEBADVISOR TO SEE THE MOST CURRENT LIST OF COURSE OFFERINGS AND AVAILABILITY.

It is recommended that students set up their account and ensure that all passwords are working prior to the first day of registration.
STUDENT WAITLIST DISCLAIMER:
Students adding themselves to a waitlist understand that placement on the waitlist does not guarantee enrollment in the course or section. It is understood that students will not be moved from the waitlist to the class roster automatically. Students are responsible for checking the "Manage My Waitlist" function on WebAdvisor and IVCC Student email account daily to see if permission to register in their waitlisted course(s) has been granted. If students choose to register once permission is granted, arrangements to pay tuition and fees associated with the course(s) must be made prior to the published payment due date.
It is also understood that if any changes to the student schedule are made that create a time conflict or an overload in credits, students will not be able to register themselves in the waitlisted course(s) if granted permission to register.
Once the drop for non-payment is complete, waitlists will be discontinued. Students who were not granted permission to register must find alternate courses. Once waitlists are discontinued, students will only be able to register (in person or online) for sections with seats available. After the published payment due date for pre-registered students, students must arrange payment according to the weekly drop for non-payment policy. Students who fail to appropriately arrange payment will be dropped according to that policy and their seats will be re-opened for registration. Students who have enrolled in a payment plan must contact the cashier office immediately to adjust their plan.
