Wait List Classes

Classes are usually on a waiting list because waiting list courses do not have high enough regular enrollment to maintain the class on the full course roster. Sometimes classes are also on a waiting list status because they are new classes with high enrollment requests above the enrollment allowance. We have some pretty strict class seat numbers around here.
