Spring 2020 Course waiting list

Please note the wait list will not be open for the Spring 2020 term

Please check Enrolment problems and course overrides page or see below for next steps

SOC and LS course override request & waiting list 

If a course you wish to enrol in is full or you wish to request an override (reserves, pre-requisite, etc.), please follow the below instructions:

  • If the course code ends with “R”:
  • If the Campus Location (Camp Loc) is STJ on the Schedule of Classes, email the instructor directly. If no instructor is listed, email Joe Varamo.
  • If you're interested in taking LS 101 online, please email Joe Varamo.
  • For all other SOC or LS courses cross listed with other disciplines, please email the instructor directly or the Cross-listed Department.


  • Fill out a separate request for each course you wish to be considered for. If you would like to request multiple sections of the same course, you can do so on the same form.
  • Ensure every required field is completed and accurate.
  • Please do not submit duplicate requests. Your submission will be time-stamped. Duplicate requests will not increase your chance of being enrolled into the course, and will only slow down the enrolment process

NOTE: No reserves will be overridden for 3B students requesting 400 level courses

Information and privacy: questions regarding the collection of information on this form can be directed to the form administrator.


  • Waitlist submission does not guarantee you will be able to enrol in your course of choice. Permission numbers are issued according to available space and position in the waitlist queue.

  • Please keep an eye on your email, as you will be sent a permission number if we are able to offer you a spot in your requested course. Permission numbers are only valid for 24 hours, so timely attention to your email is necessary. We cannot guarantee you a spot if you miss your 24 hour period.

  • If you have submitted a waiting list request and no longer wish to be considered for the course, please email sl-ug@uwaterloo.ca to have your name removed. 

  • We are unable to override course conflicts or unit loads.
