  • If you join a waitlist, you will be automatically registered if space becomes available.
  • You cannot add yourself to the waitlist for more than one section of the same class.
  • When on the waiting list, you should plan to attend the first day of class and inform the instructor you are still interested in registering for the class.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to remove themselves from waitlists as necessary and to resolve schedule conflicts within the college’s established add/drop time limits.  

Register for full or waitlisted classes

To register for a full or waitlisted class, follow the steps below:

  • From the first day of class to the end of the third day of the quarter, even if the class is waitlisted, you should attend the class. If space becomes available, you will automatically be registered for the class and no further action is needed.
  • Beginning the fourth day of the quarter, if space does not become available and you are not automatically added to the class, an instructors permission is required to overload into the class.
    • Talk to your instructor in person or email them requesting permission to register for the class. Find their email address in the Employee Directory.
    • If you receive permission to register, fill out a Schedule Change Form. You can submit your registration request either in person or via email:

You can submit your registration request in person in the Enrollment Services Office in Building 5000 (FOSS), Room 5200. Please bring:

  • A completed Schedule Change Form
  • Proof of your instructors permission (either a signed Schedule Change Form or an email from your instructor)

You can submit your registration request via email to enrollmentservices@shoreline.edu by submitting:

  • Schedule Change Form
  • Proof of your instructors permission (either a signed Schedule Change Form or an email from your instructor)
  • Your name and ctcLink ID
  • The course name and class number of the class for which you are requesting to be registered

Should I find an alternate class or go on the waitlist?

If you have flexibility in your choice of requirements, first consider enrolling in a different class that meets your needs. If the waitlisted class is truly the only option to meet your needs, you may add yourself to the waitlist and see if space becomes available.

Check your progress on the waitlist

Log into ctcLink and select Enrollment > View Waitlist to see your position on the waitlist. If you decide you are no longer interested in registering for a waitlisted class, please remove yourself from the waitlist as soon as possible.
