Instructions for Accepting a Waitlist Seat:

The Fall and Spring Waitlist Lotteries will run daily (excluding weekends and holidays) through the end of the Fall Add/Drop Period. The Spring Waitlist Lottery will resume in November and will run daily (excluding weekends and holidays) through the end of the Spring Add/Drop Period. See Registration Timeline. If you win a waitlist seat, you will receive notification from BANWAITLIST@georgetown.edu and you must claim your seat in MyAccess by the provided claim deadline in the email. Non-responsive students will lose their seat and will forfeit that seat to the next student on the waitlist. Therefore, waitlisted students must check email at least once per day even throughout the summer.

  1. To claim a winning seat(s), go to the ‘Add or Drop Courses’ page on the registration menu and choose ‘Web Register’ from the action menu and click ‘Submit Changes’.
  2. If you have successfully accepted your winning waitlist seat, this course will now appear in your current schedule with a status of “Registered.” If you fail to claim your waitlist seat via MyAccess before the claim deadline, you must re-add yourself to the waitlist following the directions provided in How to Add/Drop/Waitlist Courses.
