LionPATH Wait List

The law school uses the University's Wait List in LionPATH.  You are encouraged, before you register, to learn more about the LionPATH Wait List. The information is located under Enrollment. A procedure runs hourly to monitor the Wait List. As a courtesy to your classmates, please remove your name from a course wait list if you are no longer interested in the course. 

Important Note: You will not be registered in a class from the waitlist if any of the following apply to you:

1) You have an active registration hold.

2) Course controls prevent your registration in the course.

3) There is a time/date conflict with a course already on your registration.

4) The addition of the course will cause the 17-credit registration limit to be exceeded. 

To avoid # 3 and #4, the course that is being Wait Listed must be added using the course swap feature in LionPATH at the time the Wait Listed registration is being added.  See the LionPATH Wait List help for more information.
