Scheduling, Registration, and Wolverine Access FAQ

  • What should I do if I cannot get into a course?
    First, you need to exhaust all of the options available. Try all scheduling combinations you can – remember, for first-year Engineering students, Engr 100 and 101, math, and science courses are priorities. Build your schedule around these courses. If you still find that the classes you need to take are full or conflicting, you can do the following:

    • Add yourself to the waitlist if the option is available on Wolverine Access. Then, go to the first day of class and speak with the instructors about being added into the course.
      • Note: To join the waitlist, you’ll need to go through the process of putting a section of the class into your backpack, making sure that you check the box next to “waitlist if class is full” on the class options page. Then, you would register for it the same way you registered for other classes and it will add you to the waitlist.
  • I am on the waitlist for a class. What are my chances of getting in?
    If you are among the first few on the waitlist, chances are good you will get a spot. Always be sure to attend the first day of class and speak with the instructor about getting in. You should always have a backup class in case you cannot get into your preferred course. Remember that you can add and drop classes in the first three weeks of the Fall or Winter Term without consequence.
