Waitlist

Students can waitlist for any course that is filled to capacity. The instructors fill any spaces that open on the first day of the course with students from the waitlist. Please note that students can register OR waitlist for only one course. Students need to cancel a course registration before waitlisting for another course.

Follow the steps below to be added to the waitlist:

  • Access the Physical Education & Wellness Registration System online through physicaleducationandwellness.mit.edu. Students must have a valid certificate in order to access the system.
  • Click on the “View Course Sections” link. For any course that is filled to capacity, the size of the waitlist will be listed.
  • Select the course and add your name to the waitlist.
  • A confirmation message on the screen will appear that you successfully waitlisted for the class. A current waitlist number will be noted in the confirmation message. This confirmation message can be printed through a browser. A confirmation via e-mail will be sent. The confirmation message will include your waitlist position.
  • Go to the first day of the course. The instructors will fill any spaces available due to no show on the first day with students off the waitlist.
  • If a student is moved off the waitlist and registered for the course during the online registration period, the student will be notified by e-mail. Students can also check your waitlist position at any time through the registration system.
