Attendance and Waitlist Policies

Attendance Policy

Please remember that you must attend BOTH the first and second class meetings in order to secure your position on the class roster or the waitlist. Failure to attend either meeting may result in your being dropped from the course or the waitlist.

Waitlists and Permissions

For all classes, the Department uses the electronic waitlist system once the class fills. Students seeking to enroll in an already full class can put their names on a waitlist through the on-line registration system (Wolverine Access). A waitlist number will appear on the student’s schedule indicating their sequence spot on the electronic waitlist. Departmental staff monitor enrollment and work with Faculty to apply appropriate departmental policies to determine which, if any, students are accepted into the class from this list once it is full and waitlisted. Priority on the waitlist may be determined not by sequential order but by the Departmental policies indicated below. 

Waitlist priorities in COMPLIT 141:

  1. First-years and new transfers 
  2. Sophomores 
  3. Juniors
  4. Seniors

Waitlist priorities in COMPLIT 322:

  1. Students who have declared a Minor in Translation Studies
  2. CompLit Majors with Junior or Senior Standing
  3. International Studies Majors or Minors with Junior or Senior Standing
  4. Students majoring or minoring in foreign languages or area studies 
  5. All other undergraduate students in order of sequence on the waitlist

Permission Procedures

If you are on the waitlist for a course, you do not need to contact the instructor to request an override.  If a seat becomes available, and a permission to enroll is granted, the student will receive an email with registration information from Wolverine Access. After receiving permission, students must add the class via Wolverine Access to become officially enrolled. In all cases, it is the student’s responsibility to insure that they are properly enrolled in a course by the expiration date.
