Class Waitlists

Department Contact: Nita Robertson, 108 Biggin Hall

The Department of Art & Art History uses the BANNER waitlist system for ARTS 1510, ARTS 1513, ARTS 1610, ARTS 1613, ARTS 1617. Students with questions about waitlists on all other ARTS classes should follow the process below:

Students can be place on a waitlist by sending an email to art@auburn.edu. If a seat opens in a course with a waitlist, the first person on the list is added to the class if there are no time conflicts or other scheduling issues. If the student has a time conflict or hold, the student is sent an email giving a certain amount of time to respond. If the student does not respond by the given time, the next person on the list is added or contacted. Students should NOT attend class the first day and ask professors to add them to the class. No students will be added to the waitlisted classes after the fifth class day.

Economics does not keep a formal waitlist, but available seats are held for students who would like to add the class. All interested students should see Charisse Bowen in 101-B Miller Hall to add classes. Teachers prefer that students check with the main office to be added due to the fire code for different classrooms. As a result, students may attend class the first day, but should NOT ask the professor to be added.
