Waitlist Policy

  • If a class has reached max capacity, students are not guaranteed a spot in the course.
  • Wait listing is not available during the first pass of enrollment to encourage students to enroll in required courses.
  • When an enrolled student drops the course, the next eligible person on the wait list will be automatically enrolled.
  • Students can be wait-listed up until Thursday of Week 2 after which they will be entirely dropped from the course.
  • If a student doesn't meet class requirements/prerequisites when the system attempts to move him/her from the wait list into the class, the student will not be added to the course.
  • It is highly encouraged for waitlisted students to seek back-up courses for enrollment in the event they are unable to enroll in their waitlisted course.


Departmental Approvals

Undergraduate courses that require an audition, are restricted to "Majors Only," (showing as "O" under restrictions),  or that require "Department Consent" (showing as "D" under restrictions), must first be approved by the Undergraduate Advisor before enrollment. This includes courses listed with a "zero" enrollment limit.

For current Undergraduates requesting departmental approval to enroll in courses, use the EASy Preauthorization System. Requests may be denied if the requestor does not have the required prerequisites or instructor approval, or has not provided adequate information as listed above. All requests will receive a confirmation message with instructions once approval has been granted.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We process EASy Requests in the following order:

First Pass:

1) Senior & Juniors Music/ICAM Majors; 2) Senior & Juniors Music/ICAM Minors;

Second Pass:

3) Faculty Approved Students; 4) Sophomore & Freshmen Music Students (Majors and Minors); 5)  and Graduate Students

General Enrollment:

6) All Non-Music students. Additionally, we process EASy Requests in the order they are received.

Please Note:
The Department of Music staff cannot enroll students in courses or drop them from courses. Department clearance means the restriction preventing you to register is removed. After students are cleared by the department, they will then need to register through Webreg before the Add Deadline!


Late-Add Policy

Adding a course after the Add/Drop deadline (Friday of Week 2 for both graduate and undergraduate students) can be requested through the EASy preauthorization system.

Students will be permitted to late add only if:

(1) The student clearly attempted to add the course by the deadline but technical problems with TritonLink prevented the proper processing of the request. Please be sure to get a screen shot of the page as technical problems can be hard to prove.

(2) Serious personal circumstances (e.g. hospitalization) prevented the student from adding on TritonLink or in person prior to the deadline.

Official documentation is required for all petitions to late add a course. This must be independent of the student (a written statement by the student or a familiar will not be accepted), and must list the date(s) the student was away from campus or otherwise unavailable. Medical documentation will only be accepted from an authoritative source (e.g. the student’s attending physician) with direct knowledge of how the medical condition impacted the student’s capacity to follow campus procedures. The documentation must clearly show how the medical condition impacted the student’s capacity to follow campus procedures. In the case of a technical problem, a statement from Student Portal Services confirming technical inability to add is needed (Music Student Affairs staff can assist with this), or screen snapshot of technical error in adding before the deadline.

If you have registration questions that are not answered by the information on these pages, contact the Registrar's Office during normal business hours.
