What does it mean when a class is “Restricted”?

Restricted classes are reserved for students who are apart of special programs such as Puente, ESL, STEM, etc. 

How do I add a class that I am waitlisted for or that is “In Progress”?

Before January 23rd, 2023
If you have waitlisted for a class, check your email every day! If a spot opens up and you are #1 on the waitlist, you will receive an email to add the class within 48 hours. After 48 hours, if the spot is still open, #2 on the waitlist will then receive an email to add the class. 


After January 23rd, 2023
After the first day of class you will need an Authorization Code or “Add Code” from the professor to add any wait listed or In Progress classes.

– If you are interested in a class that is In Progress or have not received any email from your waitlisted professor after the first day of class: Email the professor and ask if they are still adding students to their class. Make sure to include your full name, the class title, and the CRN of the class you are requesting to join in your email.  It is up to the professor if they want to add students after the first day of class.


How do I use an Add Code?

1. Login to MyGateway and click on “Add or Drop Classes” under Registration Tools.   

–  If you are waitlisted for the class, click on the “Action” tab next to the class, and select Register.

–  If you are not waitlisted, enter the CRN number in one of the boxes.


2. Click “Confirm your Choices” and type the Add Code the professor gave you.


3. Click Validate. It will show “registered” on the add/drop page if you successfully used the Add Code. 

Add Codes can only be used 1 time and are unique to the CRN number of the class you are adding.
Do not share this code with other people!

If you have other questions or need help, please contact Admissions & Records or The Promise Team.
