Waiting Lists

If a course is closed, you can add yourself to the course’s waiting list through your Student Center. This is the only way to access a seat in a course that is full. It is in your best interest to add yourself to the waiting list as soon as possible. Remember to pay close attention to a course’s prerequisites before adding yourself to the waiting list.

If you are offered a seat in a course, Diane Walton (dwalton@wisc.edu) will contact you with permission to enroll. Once you receive permission to enroll, you MUST enroll within 48 hours or you will lose your seat in the course.

Graduation

Final DARS Check

If you are graduating, and you haven’t done this already, ‘Apply to Graduate’ in your Student Center. Doing this signals to the Office of the Registrar that they should audit your student record and give you the green light to graduate.

If you are graduating in May 2018, be sure to check your DARS. Near the top, you should see the phrase “all reqs complete pending final review.” This means that you have nearly completed your degree. Hooray!
