Where should I submit work for courses in which I'm enrolled AND on a waitlist?

In some cases, students may be enrolled in one section of a course and also on a waitlist for another section of the course that they would prefer to join, but is currently full. (This situation is most common in courses that include a large number of discussion sections or labs meeting at different times.) In these cases, students may be members of multiple course sites for different sections of the same course, and they may be confused about where they should submit any assigned work—the course site in which they are included as a fully enrolled student, or the course site in which they are included as a waitlisted student.

Students are strongly encouraged to submit any assigned work in both course sites, due to the following:

  • If students submit work in the course site in which they are included as a fully enrolled student only, their work is not available in the course site in which they are included as a waitlisted student. If, at some point, they move off the waitlist and become a fully enrolled student in that course site, their previous work will not be available there, because it was submitted in another course site.
  • Conversely, if students submit work in the course site in which they are included as a waitlisted student only, their work is not available in the course site in which they are included in as a fully enrolled student. If they are unable to move off the waitlist and remain a fully enrolled student in the original course site, their work will not be available there, because it was submitted in another course site.

Submitting assigned work in both course sites ensures that the work will be available to instructors, whether the student remains in the section in which they were originally enrolled or moves off the waitlist and becomes enrolled in another section.
