Fall 2022 courses

Due to high demand for Information Science courses, we restrict enrollment to students affiliated with Information Science and to students who are unaffiliated or undeclared. To handle these large enrollments, students will have the opportunity to add themselves to the waitlist. We will then choose a certain number of students from the waitlist using the following criteria (criteria varies by course):

1. IS/ISST majors

2. Need 1300 to affiliate to IS

3. IS Minors

4. Seniors in other fields

5. All other (will prioritize senior to freshmen).

Please contact the instructor for more information on how to get on the waitlist.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Bowers CIS Course Enroll.

Who should get on the waitlist?

Students who fall into one or more of the categories listed below should add themselves to the waitlist. Please note that these categories are listed in no particular order, and they do not necessarily dictate a student’s priority in the waitlist queue.

  • Information Science majors
  • Students who have applied to the IS major but have not yet affiliated
  • Students minoring in Information Science
  • Students from other majors that need IS classes to fulfill majors

IMPORTANT: Permission numbers are sent to students on the waitlists every Tuesday and Thursday during add/drop. 

*It is important to note that adding yourself to the waitlist does not guarantee that you will be admitted to the class.

Enrollment in most of the courses is limited to students in Information Science. If a course is not full and has no one on the waitlist, it will be opened for general enrollment to the entire Cornell community. Please continue to check this page as the semester approaches for more information.
