Adding, Dropping, or Waitlisting classes can all occur via Blink / TritonLink. If a class you hope to add for Fall 2010 is full, use TritonLink to add into open sections or to waitlist sections that are full. Once a day an automated TritonLink process moves waitlisted students into open seats on a firstcome, first-served basis. Web Reg waitlists will be used by ALL departments from pre-registration through the add deadline. The wait list sequence is first-come, first-serve. An automated computer program will move eligible students off the Web Reg waitlists and into classes as seats become available. It will run nightly from now through the end of the Thursday of the second week of the quarter (Oct. 7th). The program will send messages to your @ucsd email about the outcome of add attempts. Read Important Details on Blink.ucsd.edu Some important dates: - Oct. 8: Last day to ADD a course. - Oct. 22: Last day to DROP without a W and last day to change grading option. - Nov. 29: Last day to DROP with a W but without an F.
