The waitlist serves as a way to order students that wish to enroll in a course that has already reached capacity. If a student currently enrolled in the course chooses to drop the course, the first student on the waitlist would then automatically be enrolled in the course (up until the Last Add Day of a given Quarter). Depending on your spot on the waitlist, you may organically be enrolled in the course due to other students dropping the course. Unfortunately, we cannot jump students at the bottom of the waitlist up to the top. This would be unfair for those students ahead on the waitlist.
