When courses receive more students signing up than can be enrolled, instructors are encouraged to waitlist those students they would like to accommodate when space becomes available.
Being WAITLISTED (Priority to Enroll)
For seminars in which faculty are maintaining a waitlist, you will see this status indicated in the online sign-up database, vcais.stanford.edu. The faculty will reach out to waitlisted students to enroll as space becomes available and provide a permission number to use in Axess. To enroll in a seminar with a permission number, be sure to use the "Enroll" link under your Academics menu in Axess, not the "SimpleEnroll" link.
