If you are waitlisted:

If a seat becomes available, you will receive an email stating that you have up to three days to register for it. If you do not register by the end of that time period, you will be dropped from the waitlist. 

If you're still on the waitlist by the semester start date, you may attend the course's first class meeting if you have the instructor’s permission. Bring a Registration Form. If the instructor gives you permission to register, have them sign the form. You must submit that to the Registrar’s Office by the Add Deadline. 

Do not assume instructors will notify the Registrar’s Office of their consent; it is the student's job, not the instructor’s, to supply this notification. 

Once a semester has started, students on waitlists are automatically registered for any empty seat, rather than notified that a seat has become available. Do not assume you won’t be registered for the course if you do not attend the first class meeting; continue to check your registration record up through the Add Deadline. Registered students are responsible for fulfilling the course's academic and financial requirements.
