During the Fall priority registration period in May, units are asked to hold back seats for gradual release during IntroDUCKtion and Week of Welcome (WOW), to ensure that incoming freshmen have a choice of classes.
CAS encourages the use of wait lists. Wait lists are not available to new students going through IntroDUCKtion, but they will be maintained for continuing students. Wait lists interact with the fall enrollment management process as follows:
- Early in the summer, the Registrar's Office will turn off or suspend all wait lists for continuing students.
- This suspension will allow units the ability to release seats to new students throughout IntroDUCKtion.
- Wait lists will be turned back on after IntroDUCKtion for all students.
- The Registrar's Office will repeat these steps for WOW.
