he/she can add him/herself to the course waitlist.
NEW: For Spring and Fall, students ranking on the waitlist will be based on a point system. Students who are graduating within the next year will receive 5 points, seniors 4 points, juniors 3 points, and sophomores 2 points. The more points you have the higher you are on the waitlist. Therefore the spot you are on the waitlist could occasionally change based on the students (and their points) who get on the waitlist after you.
