Waitlist Update

This semester VLC has added in the option for students to select to be placed on a wait list if a course was already full.  Students were also placed on the wait list if they selected a course that was not at the appropriate grade level. 

After the December 14th application deadline, we started placing students from the wait list into these courses where we could.  Students received in an email notifying them if they were placed into their requested course.

At this point, most of our courses are full and it's not likely there will be any significant movement in these courses. 

We will be monitoring enrolment in courses regularly and, if space does become available, we will notify students via email up until February 8th that we have placed them in one or more of their requested courses.

Current VLC students should check the Student Guide Announcement for more information.
