Learn how Columbia College student Julian NoiseCat is making space for Native students on campus.
The Wait List feature for course registration in SSOL went live for participating departments on the first day of classes in Fall 2013, Tuesday, September 3.
The last day to add a student from the Wait List is January 29, 2015 for the spring 2015 term.
We have developed the following reference documents to help faculty who are participating in the pilot:
In general, instructors (in accordance with academic departmental procedures) have discretion to manage their own Wait Lists, as well as to exceed course caps.
For example, to ensure a particular student is admitted to a course, the best option for an instructor using an auto-fill Wait List would be to temporarily change to a self-managed Wait List, using the following steps:
Keep in Mind: You can admit specific students to your course without doing anything to the other students on the Wait List. In other words, there’s no need to use the “deny” option in this case. The “Deny” option is for instructors who want to let students know that there is no possibility that they will be admitted to the course and don’t want to keep them waiting unnecessarily.
