Waitlists & 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. However, priority on the waitlist is determined not necessarily by sequential order but by each Department’s policies. Departmental staff monitor enrollment and work with Faculty to apply appropriate departmental policies to determine which, if any, students are accepted into the class once it is full and waitlisted.

The Department of Statistics must allow students who are declared in its programs the opportunity to register for Statistics classes needed to complete their programs. Any remaining seats in STATS/DATASCI courses will be available to non-Statistics students on the first day of classes each term, and permissions will be issued according to the procedure below. Instructors in the Statistics Department do not manage their waitlists and do not issue overrides.*Please note that for STATS courses, additional seats may be available in the DATASCI registration holds. STATS and DATASCI are the exact same course. Waitlists for both will be reviewed accordingly.

Permission Procedures

Students offered permission 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 within the 48 hour expiration date. Also, students will not be able to register for the course (add the course) until they are issued permission and have dropped themselves from the waitlist. In all cases, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he or she is properly enrolled in a course by the expiration date.
