Waitlisting Classes
Guidelines for waitlisting students


LBCC uses an auto-enroll from the waitlist process. This process will automatically enroll waitlisted students when a seat becomes available. The auto-enrollment process occurs on a nightly basis and does not notify a student when they are added to the class roster. You will need to check your schedule
daily to see if you have been enrolled from the waitlist.

NOTE: If you are automatically enrolled in a class, there may be additional fees that must be paid by the payment deadline.

Guidelines for Waitlisted Students

You will not be auto-enrolled from the waitlist due to any one of the following factors:

  • Current enrollment in a different section of the same course.
  • Time conflict between a currently enrolled class and the waitlisted class.
  • Co-requisites or prerequisites for the class have not been met.
  • Term unit limit is exceeded
  • You have repeated a course; This includes courses with a withdrawal (W).

If you are repeating a course, you must complete a Course Repitition Request and submit it to Admissions & Records. The last day you can add to a waitlist is the Saturday before the start of the class. If you were not automatically enrolled and wish to add a class that you waitlisted, attend the first class meeting and request a permission number from the instructor. If it is an online class, contact the instructor by email on the first day of class to request a permission number.

Reasons why you cannot be added to a waitlist

  • Enrollment appointment dates or time have not yet been reached.
  • Prerequisites or co-requisites for the class have not been met.
  • The number of maximum units to waitlist has been reached.
    • Fall and Spring semesters – 12 units
    • Summer semester – 8 units
  • The class is not available for waitlisting. In this case, consent of the instructor is required.
  • You have a hold on your account.
  • The last day to waitlist has passed.
  • The waitlist is full
  • You have already enrolled or are waitlisted in another section of the same class.
