ADHE Course Waitlists

Due to the demand for our courses we have a waitlist for classes that are full. Please sign up for the waitlist section of the course.
For wait-listed students please note the following:
  1. Please be aware that registration is blocked once courses are full, which prevents everyone from registering. If your registration is blocked, please check to see if the course is full, and then sign up for the waitlist section of the course.
  2. The waitlist works on a priority basis; if seats become available they are given to students who are registered in the following degree programs: (a) ALE MEds/MAs, (b) ADHE Diploma, and (c) CAHE Arts Minor. This is followed by students outside of these degrees by registration date.
  3. Students will be moved into the class automatically as seats become available. Please check the SSC to confirm your registration.
  4. We will be moving in students off the waitlist and into the course once per day. If you see a space available in the course that means we have either not moved in students today, or that someone has dropped the course after we have moved in students and that seat will not be assigned until the next day.
  5. In most cases waitlists will continue to be active and will be monitored up to the last day to withdraw without a W standing for the term. The waitlist will be deleted after this date.
  6. If you have any further questions please contact pro-d.educ@ubc.ca.

LLED Course Waitlists

Due to the demand for our courses we have a waitlist for classes that are full. Please sign up for the waitlist section of the course.
For wait-listed students please note the following:
  1. Please be aware that registration is blocked once courses are full, which prevents everyone from registering. If your registration is blocked, please check to see if the course is full, and then sign up for the waitlist section of the course.
  2. The waitlist works on a priority basis; if seats become available they are given to students who are registered in the following programs: (a) DEDU LIBE, (b) DEDU LLED, and (c) EDUC Certificate LIBE. This is followed by students outside of these programs by registration date.
  3. Students will be moved into the class automatically as seats become available. Please check the SSC to confirm your registration.
  4. We will be moving in students off the waitlist and into the course once per day. If you see a space available in the course that means we have either not moved in students today, or that someone has dropped the course after we have moved in students and that seat will not be assigned until the next day.
  5. In most cases waitlists will continue to be active and will be monitored up to the last day to withdraw without a W standing for the term. The waitlist will be deleted after this date.
  6. If you have any further questions please contact pro-d.educ@ubc.ca.

** Online courses can be part of your Diploma or Certificate program!
