After Registration 

  • If you are waitlisted for any of your courses:
    • Register for backup courses to bring you up to at least 4 units, there is no guarantee that you will receive a seat in the waitlisted course.
    • Be sure to monitor your Muhlenberg email address as notifications about available seats will be delivered to that email address. Students have 24 hours to respond to any waitlist seat available, and then the seat is offered to another student.
    • If you no longer want a seat in a course you are waitlisted for, please drop yourself from the waitlist as a courtesy to other students who want seats.
