When a class is full, you may place yourself on a waitlist. If a seat opens prior to the first class meeting, you will automatically be enrolled in the class, and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address that you have specified in your MyPortal.fhda.edu settings (be certain that your contact information is accurate).
Automated Waitlist: Important Regulations
You must meet the course prerequisites prior to placing yourself on a waitlist.
If you are waitlisted for two classes that have corequisites, a seat must open in both classes (example: ASTR 10A and ASTR 10L).
You may only place yourself on a waitlist for one section of the same course.
You may not place yourself on a waitlist that conflicts in time with any other course for which you are registering.
You remain responsible for initiating the official drop process.
Access your MyPortal.fhda.edu account to verify that you have been removed from the waitlist and are now enrolled in the course after you receive a confirmation e-mail. Pay your fees.
Pay to Stay: You'll Be Dropped for Nonpayment—If you have changed your schedule of classes or have added more units, you must submit payment in full or you will be dropped for nonpayment and your seat will be given to another student. To pay fees or sign up for the college's payment installment plan, access your MyPortal.fhda.edu account.
You're Responsible for Officially Dropping Your Classes—If you choose not to attend classes, you remain responsible for completing the official drop process.
Log in to your MyPortal.fhda.edu account and follow the instructions to officially drop courses. You can also drop courses in person at the Admissions & Records Office (Room 8101).
Notifying instructors that you are dropping classes is not a substitute for officially dropping courses.
Failure to officially drop courses by the appropriate deadline will result in assessed enrollment fees for which you are financially responsible, as well as failing grades on your college transcript.
