This is our waitlisting process for Continuing Studies students. If you are a University or Career Studies student, please see Regular Studies Waitlisting Information

How do I waitlist for a course?

Registrations are accepted on a first-come first-served basis, upon full receipt of tuition fees at the time of registration. Here is our waitlist process for courses that are full:

  • When a course section is full, you will get an error message indicating ‘Allocated seats are full’. Select the waitlist option in the action box beside the course to waitlist, then select ‘Submit Transactions’.

  • When a spot becomes available, you will receive notification by email (to both myLangara email address and your "preferred" email address).

  • Once a waitlist offer is given, you will have 24 hours to respond by going to myLangara and either registering for the course or dropping from the waitlist.

  • If you receive an offer and don't respond within 24 hours, you will automatically be dropped from the waitlist.

  • Two days before the start date of the course - email notifications will be stopped and you will be contacted by phone (to all contact numbers on file) if space becomes available. You have to answer your phone and accept or decline the offer immediately or the seat will be offered to the next student on the waitlist.

If you can not add yourself to the online waitlist for your course, you can also add yourself to a waitlist in person or by phone. Please call our Continuing Studies office at 604.323.5322.

Waitlisting FAQ's

Do I have to pay tuition for waitlisted courses? Tuition and waitlisted courses

You do not have to pay for waitlisted courses. Tuition is only charged when you register for the course.

Waitlist registration offers are issued at any time of day (except between 9pm and 1am) as soon as a seat becomes available during regular registration periods. The student at the top of the waitlist is issued an email waitlist notification offer and has 24 hours to register for the course.

To check for waitlist registration offers, log into myLangara regularly (daily) and check the Register page. Don’t rely on email offer notification alone since an incorrectly entered email address or any delays in the email system could result in you missing a registration offer.

The notification email is sent to both your myLangara email address as well as your ‘Preferred email address'. It is your responsibility to check your email and to keep your preferred email up-to-date.
