The registration waitlist is an electronic list of students who are waiting to register for a class section that has reached its maximum enrollment. The waitlist is open during the registration period and concludes the day before the semester begins. The number of available seats on a waitlist may be viewed in STAR GPS or Class Availability.
While registering in STAR GPS, students may add themselves to a waitlist by expanding a closed class and clicking on “WAITLIST THIS CLASS.”
No, positions on a waitlist for specific sections are not available.
A UH Mānoa Waitlist Email will be sent to your hawaii.edu email account notifying you that there is a seat available for you. If you have added yourself to a waitlist, you should routinely check your email. Be sure to clear any holds that may prevent you from registering for a waitlisted class.
The email notification will remind you that you must register for the class within 24 hours. Once you receive this email, log into STAR GPS and follow the registration instructions to add the class to your schedule. You must register for the class within the 24 hour deadline.
You are responsible for routinely checking your email and/or text messages. If you miss the 24 hour deadline, you will automatically be removed from the waitlist and will not receive notification of this action. You may add yourself to the waitlist again in STAR GPS if there are open seats available.
Prerequisites and course restrictions must be met before you are allowed to waitlist. You will need to obtain the correct override from the instructor or from the department offering the class in order to waitlist for a class.
Keep checking your email to see if a seat becomes available to you. Being on a waitlist does not guarantee that you will get in a class. You may contact the instructor or department offering the class to notify them of your situation.
To remove yourself from a waitlist, log into STAR GPS and click on UN-WAITLIST.
The registration waitlist concludes on the day before the semester begins and students will automatically be removed from all waitlists. Once the waitlist period ends, you may contact the instructor or department offering the class if you wish to register for the class.
