My course is closed, what can I do?

Great news! During the 18WI and 18SP terms County College of Morris will be introducing the WAITLIST feature.

The waitlist feature on Web Advisor  will allow students the opportunity to add themselves to a list of students who want to register for a class that is closed. If a seat becomes available, the first student on the waitlist will receive an email to their CCM email account letting them know a seat has become available. If the student chooses not to register, or does not register by the expiration date (noted in the email), the next student on the waitlist is offered the seat. If more than one seat becomes available, students are offered seats in the order in which they were added to the waitlist.


Key Points About Waitlisting:

  • Waitlisting does not guarantee a seat will become available in a course
  • When a seat becomes available, the first student on the waitlist is notified via CCM email and is given an expiration date and time to register themselves in the class. If the student does not register by the expiration date/time the next student on the waitlist will be offered the seat.
  • It’s essential that students monitor their CCM email account daily so they can act when a seat becomes available.
  • If a seat becomes available and you are on a hold or you haven’t met the pre-requisites for the course, the system will stop you from registering.


How it Works

  • If a class is closed, you can waitlist classes via your Web Advisor account by selecting “Waitlist” instead of “Register”. The system will prompt you with a message.
  • You can view the classes that you are waitlisted for on Web Advisor by clicking “Manage My Waitlist”. The courses that you are waitlisted for will have an “Active” status next to them.
  • You can remove yourself from the waitlist on Web Advisor by clicking “Manage My Waitlist”, using the drop down menu and selecting “Remove” – WARNING – only do this if you are no longer interested in being on the waitlist for the class.
  • If a seat becomes available, you will receive an automated message to your CCM email account alerting you that a seat is available. The email will have an expiration date/time that you must register by or you forfeit your seat.
  • To register for the seat, log into Web Advisor, click “Manage My Waitlist”. You will now see “permission to register” next to the class where the seat is available. Use the drop down menu and click “register”. You will receive an acknowledgement email confirming that you have registered and made a change to your schedule.
