To prevent students in WGSS from being locked out of necessary courses, all seats in WGSS classes are initially reserved exclusively for WGSS MA and PhD students. These are open to WGSS students on a first come, first serve basis. For Spring and Summer courses, seats are held until a week after the final enrollment window opens. For Autumn courses, seats are held until all incoming WGSS MA and PhD students have had an opportunity to enroll, typically in late June.
WGSS students are encouraged to enroll in WGSS courses as soon as their enrollment window opens. Students can find their enrollment window information in the Buckeyelink student center under the Enrollment tab. If a window is not listed, click “details” and select the semester in question to see when the window opens. Once course seats have been released for external enrollment, seats cannot be re-held for WGSS students and there is little that can be done if a class fills. WGSS students are encouraged to enroll in courses they may need even if they may drop the course before the start of the term.
WGSS graduate minors may register for WGSS courses after the seats have been released for general enrollment. At that time, graduate minors will be able to add the course in Buckeyelink without special permissions. If a graduate minor wishes to secure a place in a course before the seats have been released, they may place themselves on the waitlist and will be added to the course automatically once the seats are opened.
