Closed Classes

​What should you do if the class you want to take is closed (full)?

​Closed Classes: If a class does not have seats available on the online class schedule, the class has reached maximum capacity. You may add yourself to the waitlist (if available) on or after your appointment time.  Click  for Waitlist Information.

Add Permits/Instructor Permission: Beginning the week the class begins, instructor permission is required to add a class. To obtain instructor permission go to the first class meeting or email the instructor if the course is an online course. If space is available, the instructor may give you an ADD PERMIT with an ADD AUTHORIZATION CODE (AAC). Enroll in the course via MyCoast portal following the instructions on the add permit. If you did not receive an add permit follow the instructions below.

NOTE: the registration system will not prompt you for an AAC until the course begins. Please note that faculty may utilize the waitlist to assign Add Permits but there is no guarantee that you will be given an Add Permit if you're on the waitlist.
