For Waitlist Only Courses: There are several courses in the catalog that are listed as 'Waitlist Only' in OASIS. These are courses that may require permission from the course director or site (example: Stamford and Bassett) before enrollment can be secured. Registration for courses that have variable student capacity is NOT guaranteed. Please review the 'Waiting List' information found in the description of each course in the catalog for more details. These courses cannot be added as selections during any lottery.
To add yourself to a waitlist,
1. Go to OASIS (https://oasis.cumc.columbia.edu/).
2. Click the "Add Course" tab.
3. Search the catalog. You can filter by Department and other search criteria.
4. Click "Add" under the Actions column.
5. Click "Wait."
If you have added yourself to a wait list for a course that requires permission, it is your responsibility to obtain permission and provide any approval to email@example.com. Once approval is received, registration for that course will be confirmed.
Waitlist approvals are subject to the 4 Week Policy; therefore, no action will be taken on wait lists 28 days prior to the start date of that rotation, unless a student has met the criteria of the 4 Week Policy (personal emergency, faculty not available, academic emergency, change in career path).
