Waiting List Information

If a course is full when you are registering:

  1. Online – the system will ask you if you want your name on the waiting list. You must respond “yes” in order to be added to the waiting list.
  2. In person – Financial & Registration Services staff will ask if you want to be added to the waiting list.
  3. By fax, email or Canada Post mail – you will be added to waiting list by Financial & Registration Services staff and mailed or emailed further information.

When a spot for a course becomes available:

You will receive an email to your Brandon University email account that will allow you to register for the course or decline the available spot. The email will also indicate how long you have to register in the course. Failure to respond by the deadline indicated in the email will result in your name being removed from the waiting list. If you miss the window to register in the course but still want to be on the waiting list, you will need to add yourself to the list again as described below.

Adding your name to a waiting list:

If you are eligible to register using the online registration system, proceed with your registration. The system will indicate if the course you are requesting is full, and ask if you wish to be added to the waiting list. You must respond “yes” in order to be added to the waiting list.

If you are not eligible to use the online registration system, you may add your name to a waiting list by contacting Financial & Registration Services in person, by e-mail to finreg@brandonu.ca or by phone at 727-9724.
