How do waitlisted students gain access to a Sakai course site?
In certain cases, a student may be added to the waitlist of a course by the Office of the University Registrar. Duke's policy is to provide course site access to waitlisted students, so they may not fall behind other students if they are ultimately enrolled.
As students add courses during the add/drop period, they will be automatically added to the appropriate Sakai rosters, typically within 3-6 hours. Students who drop courses will have their enrollment within the Sakai site disabled to prevent unauthorized access to course materials.
Through the end of the add/drop period at the beginning of the semester, both the officially registered students and those on the Registrar’s waitlist are enrolled in the course site. Waitlisted students are provided Auditor access.
At the end of the add/drop period, students still on the wait list, but not officially registered for the course, will have their enrollments in the Sakai course site disabled.
