If you are unable to register for a course because it is already full, most courses have a wait list option to which you can add your name.  

Students may or may not be registered off the wait list prior to the last day for change in registration (fall and winter terms,) so you should, however, still register for a full course load. 

If you are offered a seat in a course for which you are wait listed, you will receive an e-mail to your @mta.ca account from the registrar’s office granting a 48 hour period for you to register. You will be able to add yourself to the course during this time frame and then, if necessary, drop a course so that your course load does not exceed 15 course credits (unless you are eligible and wish to overload.)

If you do not register for the wait listed course within the allotted time, you will be removed from the wait list for that course.
