Beginning Summer 2009

The waitlist process allows students to place their names on a waitlist for a class section that is full. Students move up the list as openings occur and are filled.

Note: Being on a waitlist is no guarantee that you will get into a class. Students must still meet pre-requisite and/or probation requirements for the class before they can be enrolled.

How do I Waitlist?

  • Go to MC4ME Portal

    (see below for sign-on instructions)
  • Attempt to register for the class. If the class is closed/full you may be given the option to WL-waitlist for the class. If there is a waitlist spot available and you choose WL-waitlist, you will be placed on the waitlist for that section. You may only waitlist for one section of any given course. You can see the classes you are waitlisted in by checking Manage my Waitlists section of MC4ME Portal
  • You may also be placed on a waitlist by submitting a schedule request form at the registration counter in the Lesher Building on the Merced Campus or the Admissions/Registration counter at the Los Banos Campus.
  • Qualified waitlisted students will be added to class sections by instructor signature on a schedule request form using the student waitlist as it appears on the instructors class ros-ter. Signed schedule request forms must be turned in to the registration desk for enroll-ment to occur.
  • You must attend the first session of any class that you are waitlisted for in order to be considered for enrollment in that class. Failure to check in with the instructor of a class you are waitlisted for can lead to your being dropped from the waitlist for that class. Online students must contact their online instructor through email at the time of their first online class meeting to express their continued desire to enroll in the class.
  • To remove yourself from the Waitlist, go to the Manage my Waitlists section of MC4ME Portal
    and check the re-move box and update. This will remove you from any waitlists that you have checked. You can also go to the registration counter at either campus and ask to be removed from any waitlist.

It is important for you to monitor your registration/waitlists through MC4ME Portal
whenever possible. You are responsible for any class enrollment resulting from waitlisting yourself in a class.

MC4ME Portal

MC4ME Portal
is a great tool that allows students to check their grades, register for courses, search classes, drop classes, waitlist for classes, pay class fees online and more.

To use MC4ME Portal
you must be a regular continuing student or a new student who has previously registered in at least one class. Returning, probationary and high school students cannot utilize MC4ME Portal
at this time.
