If a class that meets completely in-person or is a combination of in-person and online instruction is already full at the time of registration at University of Maryland Global Campus, you have the option of placing your name on a waiting list for the class.

How to Get on a Waiting List

You can check class availability by visiting Class Search in MyUMGC.

  • If a space becomes available, the first student on the waiting list will be registered for it, and the charge will appear on the student's account. An e-mail notification of the enrollment from the waiting list will be sent. If a space becomes available but the first student is ineligible to enroll in the class (for reasons such as the student has not met the prerequisites or is enrolled in a class that conflicts in time), the space will go to the next person on the waiting list.
  • If you no longer want a class, you should remove your name from the waiting list to prevent the possibility of an automatic enrollment.
  • Faculty members and academic advisors are not authorized to add you to a full class.

How to Make the Waiting List Work for You

Class sections are added regularly, so access MyUMGC for the latest course offering information. University of Maryland Global Campus reserves the right to reorder the waiting list for a given course, without notice, to correct inequities caused by system problems.

Other Important Information About the Waiting List

Cash payments are accepted only at the Academic Center at Largo.
