Should I join a waitlist or audit a closed course?
A course can be waitlisted or audited, the registration system will not permit both.
Once a student registers into a course as an audit student, they lose their position on the course waitlist.
Should space become available, the student at the top of the waitlist will receive an email. Please follow the instructions outlined in the email.
Students who wish to audit a course only after all possibility of enrolling off of the waitlist has passed should wait until the last day to enroll in a course to register as an audit student. See the Portland Academic Calendar for specific dates.
Courses registered as an audit or waitlisted are subject to the same add/drop deadlines as regularly registered courses. See the Portland Academic Calendar for specific dates.
Often the registration system has difficulties recognizing switches between a waitlist and audit status. If you have difficulties registering through WebAdvisor, complete an Add/Drop Form and return it to the Enrollment Services Office. Write AUDIT in the credits section.
