Waitlist Requests

Jump to a Section

The Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences does not utilize the waitlist functionality found in Caesar. Instead, we handle waitlist requests internally. Instructions for requesting permission numbers for courses in the department are given below. Please read these instructions in their entirety before submitting a waitlist request.

Spring 2017

To request permission numbers for Spring 2017 courses, use the link below. You must log in with your u.northwestern.edu account in order to access the form. If you need to change a previously submitted request, please submit a new request and indicate in the "Special Circumstances" box that you are editing a previously submitted request.

Special Circumstances

  • If you are requesting to be waitlisted for more than one course, you must submit a separate request for each.
  • Once a class has filled, it is closed to enrollment except by permission number. If a student subsequently withdraws and the class shows seats available, those seats will be filled from the waitlist. 
  • Waitlists will be processed on the dates listed for the quarter. If you do not receive an email by 6:00 p.m. on one of these dates, first double check your email and your spam folder, and then contact the department at ieundergrad@u.northwestern.edu
  • General updates on waitlists will be included in the IEMS Weekly Digest. You can find the current issue and archives of past issues at https://sites.google.com/a/u.northwestern.edu/iems-undergraduate-program/newsletters.

Additional Courses

  • Students may not register for a fifth course before the first day of classes for the quarter. Permission numbers will not be generated before then for students who indicate the requested course will be registered as a fifth course. If you indicate that a course will not be your fifth course, you must use any generated permission number before the expiration date. 
  • For any issues with the form, please contact ieundergrad@u.northwestern.edu.
