Waitlist Options at DACC


    With high enrollments, many of our course sections fill-up quickly. To better serve students when a seat opens up, DACC is now utilizing a waitlist service to meet our students’ needs. If a section is full, students have the opportunity to be “waitlisted” for the specific section. Please note on the Jaguar Spot, the classes that are not eligible for the waitlisting service. The information below explains what happens after you are waitlisted:

What Happens Once You are on a Waitlist?

Once you’ve waitlisted yourself through the registration process (online or with an Admissions Specialist, Advisor or Counselor), you can manage your waitlist through the Jaguar Spot/Online Student Services.

View Your Waitlisted Sections

Step 1: Go to the Jaguar Spot/Online Student Services
Step 2: Go to the Student menu
Step 3: Select the Manage My Waitlist from the Academic Plan – Registration options.

Remove Yourself from a Waitlist

Step 1: Go to the Manage My Waitlist area
Step 2: Select Remove from the drop-down action box in front of the section waitlist that you want to be removed from.
Step 3: Click on SUBMIT.

Getting a Seat in the Waitlisted Section

Students Approved for Online Registration: Once you are waitlisted, the online services will automatically enroll you in the waitlisted section(s) if a seat opens up in the section requested. An e-mail will be sent to your DACC e-mail account to confirm the registration.
Students Who Have Not Been Approved for Online Registration: When a seat opens, the Registration office will contact you by phone or DACC email. You must respond within 3 days or your seat will be given to the next student on the list. Lack of response will also remove your name from the waiting list.

Important Notes About Waitlists

  • Students are only allowed to waitlist themselves for 1 section of a course (per term).
  • All course sections will NOT be eligible for the waitlist option. See a list of the sections that are not available to be waitlisted on the Jaguar Spot/Instructions for Jaguar Spot Services. Any class that requires a separate lab will not be available for waitlists. Classes with the lecture and lab built together will be eligible for waitlists.
  • Once you are waitlisted, the online services will automatically enroll you in the waitlisted section(s) if a seat opens up in the section requested AND if you are not enrolled in another class that conflicts with the waitlisted section. An e-mail will be sent to your DACC e-mail account to confirm the registration. If there is a conflict, a DACC Admissions Specialist will contact you.
  • If you do not want the seat anymore, the e-mail will refer you to the Jaguar Spot where you can drop the section.
  • All waitlist requests that are not filled will be automatically dropped during the first week of the course section.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to remove his or herself from the waitlist or the course section if enrolled!
  • Checking your DACC e-mail account on a regular basis will be required to utilize the waitlist system and manage your DACC student accounts successfully!
The Jaguar Spot

   Students will be required to access their schedules, grades, and bill statements online through the Jaguar Spot. If you receive notification that your waitlisted, if students do not have access to the Internet, computers and printers will be available to use on campus. Complete instructions are provided on the Jaguar Spot.
