When a seat in the course opens up:

  • You will receive an e-mail in your MyMC email account within the hour.
  • Check your My MC e-mail daily!  
  • Before the start of classes: You have 48 hours* to login to your My MC account and change your registration status from "Waitlist" to "Registered Web" for that course.  *One week before the start of classes, you will be given 24 hours to login to My MC and register.

   If you fail to register within the allotted time, the seat will be given to the next student on the waitlist.

  • Once your schedule is finalized, remove yourself from any remaining waitlists.

NOTE:  When a waitlist exists, the Seats Remaining column "Rem" in My MC is NOT accurate.  If a seat opens up, priority goes to the first person on the waitlist.  You may add yourself to a waitlist to get a future available seat.
