Enrollment

The available course delivery options are as follows:

  • Face-to-Face: Face-to-face classes have a safe number of students in a socially distanced classroom with lectures and participation occurring in-person and in real time.
  • Hyflex: Hyflex classes have a safe number of students face-to-face in a socially distanced classroom, with lectures being live-streamed to allow students to participate in the class remotely. Lectures are also recorded for viewing by students online at a later time if necessary; with additional course materials posted online which can be accessed at any time.
  • Hybrid: Hybrid classes have a fixed meeting pattern that includes both face-to-face and virtual classrooms. For example, a hybrid class might meet on a Tuesday/Thursday meeting pattern, with the Tuesday class meeting face-to-face and the Thursday class meeting virtually.
  • Asynchronous: Asynchronous classes do not meet face-to-face, and they do not have a regularly scheduled meeting time. Most of the class materials are available online at any time. Some asynchronous online classes may include virtual class meetings, which will be arranged on a class-by-class basis by the instructor. 
  • Synchronous: Synchronous classes do not meet face-to-face, but they do meet at a specific time and day(s) of the week in a virtual classroom. All class materials are available online, and virtual lectures may be recorded to provide additional flexibility for students to view them later.

Here’s an example of how each type of class will be listed in the updated schedule:

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to find your enrollment appointment within myUH.

It begins on Saturday, November 21 at midnight.

Students may add or drop classes up to the last day to add via myUH for Spring 2021. Always review your options with your academic advisor and consider the billing schedule before considering add, drop, or swap options.

Some courses offer a waitlist. If a waitlist is available, you will have the option to be placed in the waitlist queue.

Please confirm your enrollment appointment in myUH.

Waitlist

The waitlist allows us to manage class section registrations. If a class is currently closed for registration, but has a waitlist option, students who would still like to enroll in that class can choose to be put on the waitlist. Not all classes will have a waitlist option, and getting on the waitlist does not guarantee that you’ll be enrolled in that section.

The waitlist is first-come, first-serve. Your position in the queue is based upon who signs up first, second, third, etc. The size of the waitlist queue does not have any relationship to the number of students who will find seats in the class, and instructors control how many students can queue in the waitlist for each section.

A process runs every three hours (beginning at 11 a.m.) attempting to register students if/when seats become available in that section. If it registers you for the class, you'll receive an email notifying you. You'll then see that class as part of your enrolled classes in your myUH self-service account. Make sure you have a plan to pay tuition/fees associated with that class to avoid being dropped for failure to pay.

Yes. You can only waitlist for 8 credit hours for the term and 4 hours in any session.

If the waitlist option is available, you'll see links that will allow you to be placed on the waitlist. If your request to be added to the waitlist is successful, you'll see language confirming you've been added and letting you know your position in the queue.

If all seats in the waitlist are taken, it'll let you know that the section is closed and the waitlist option isn't available at this time.

The enrollment process will first enroll waitlisted students. Then, if additional seats are available, the process will allow students to register directly into the section(s).

If the enrollment process registers you for the class, you'll receive an email notifying you. You'll then see that class as part of your enrolled classes in your myUH self-service account.

All payment due dates still apply. Make sure you have a plan to pay tuition/fees associated with that class to avoid being dropped for failure to pay.

Instructors choose whether or not to have a waitlist. If the waitlist option isn't available, the instructor has chosen not to use it.

Swap option allows a student to choose a different section of a class,  if the Waitlist option is available; check the Waitlist option field, if you want to swap into a different section. The Wait List process will swap/enroll a student if the student is enrolled for another section of the same class and will drop the student from the original class. There are no guarantees being in the waitlist will get you into that section.

No. You'll be moved to the end of the waitlist queue.

The waitlist process stops running at midnight on the last day students may add themselves to classes for the term or session. You can find these dates on the academic calendar.

At any time, an instructor can choose to stop using the waitlist. The waitlist stops taking requests the day before the start of term.

You won't be enrolled if:

  • A seat didn't become available
  • You have a time conflict. This means the time of this section overlaps with a class you're already enrolled in
  • You haven't met the requisite or co-requisites
  • You're already in the maximum number of hours allowed by your college and/or department
