Registration for Organizational Learning courses occurs via MyLINC on a first-come basis until a class reaches maximum capacity. Once capacity is reached, registrants are offered the opportunity to be added to a waiting list. Adding yourself to a waiting list is highly recommended! When a registrant drops a class, an email is sent to the first person on the waiting list and they have 24 hours in which to respond and secure their spot through registration in MyLINC. Once the 24-hour period expires, the open spot is offered to the next person on the waitlist.

Most classes also offer a Course Interest List if you are unable to register for any available sessions. Those who register for the Course Interest List, and members of the waiting list that weren't able to attend, will be the first notified when new sessions of that class are available.

Level 1 and a departmental shortcode is required for registration.
