Waitlist Policy

Waitlist Policy and Procedure

Global Health Studies courses often reach their maximum capacity and subsequently close during registration. When this happens, students are advised to put themselves on a waitlist. If a student withdraws from a class, seats are filled from the waitlist.

Students can add themselves to a waitlist in CAESAR by checking the “add me to the waitlist if this class is full” option when they put the course in their shopping cart. They should then email globalhealth@northwestern.edu explaining their interest in the course. These details will help us advocate for more programmatic resources, including increased course load.

Note that being on the waitlist does not guarantee admission into the class. Students will be contacted via email if spots become available.
