Waitlist Bidding


Waitlist bidding determines your rank on the waitlist for closed classes. Unsuccessful bids from previous rounds do not populate the waitlist! To join a waitlist for a closed (full) class, you must participate in the Waitlist Round. Only courses that have filled or have fewer than 10 seats remaining are eligible for bidding in the waitlist round.

1.       You will have 1000 points to spend; there is no limit on how many waitlists you join.

2.       0-point bids are possible during the waitlist round; place those bids first before allocating your other points.

3.       Waitlist positions are generated based on priority then points spent.

4.       Waitlist results will be posted on https://sloanbid.mit.edu on August 10th at 12pm under Current Bids and Bid Results.

5.       A waitlist position does not guarantee entry into a class. Please see the instructions below for entry into a class from a waitlist.

Joining a class from the waitlist


1.      Once the term begins, attend the class.

2.      The faculty or TA will notify you when you get a seat in the class.

3.      When you have a confirmed seat, complete the online add process to add the class to your Fall schedule.

4.      You will get an email confirming your online add form has been approved.

5.      Log in once more to click Submit to Registrar to commit the change to your registration. Your registration is not complete until you take this final step!

Swapping Sections

1.       Once the term begins in September, you can request a section swap from the class teaching assistant (TA) or instructor.

2.       The TA will notify you if they can accommodate your swap request.

a.       In some cases, the section you want may be full. Swaps are usually managed on a first-come/first-served basis by the TA before taking new students from the waitlist.

3.       The TA will then reconcile all section swaps with Educational Services; no further action is required for the student.
