Waiting Lists

If all seats in a class have been claimed and a waitlist has been established, DukeHub will construct a list of other students requesting enrollment in the order in which attempts to enroll in the course are logged. The waitlisted course will count towards the total course registration limit and the student will need to drop a course or request a unit increase to accommodate the waitlisted course. Students can waitlist a class that conflicts with another enrolled class, however enrollment in the waitlisted course will not take place until the time conflict is resolved. Students who are enrolled in one section and waitlisted in another section of the same course, will not be enrolled into the waitlisted section, as this would be a duplicate enrollment. Students should check their schedules periodically via DukeHub to determine waitlist status.

  • Caution: All waitlists with the exception of the Fuqua School of Business, Duke Law, Nicholas School of the Environment, Pratt School of Engineering (Professional Masters Programs), Sanford School of Public Policy, and the School of Nursing will be erased at the end of the first week of classes. During the second week of classes, all undergraduate courses below the 500 level will require a permission number. Be advised, being on a waitlist for a class does not guarantee eventual enrollment to the class.
