When you register for a class online you will know immediately if the chosen class is open. The receipt you see when you complete your registration is your class confirmation. Please bring this with you to your class. If you choose to go on a waiting list, the program coordinator or other Park District representative will monitor the class waiting list. If there is room available in that class, those people on the waiting list will be contacted and enrolled on a “first come, first served basis”. In other words, those names that were first on the waiting list will be contacted first when and if openings in the class occur.

You must register for the class to be placed on the waiting list. It is a good idea to put your name on the waiting list; however, this does not ensure that you will be admitted into the class.

No. If you are on a waiting list and a spot becomes available, you’ll be moved into the class. You will be asked to pay when notified that you have been transferred into the class. Usually you’re kept on the list for at least a week after the class has started. Sometimes participants drop out of classes after attending the first time. A waiting list participant can then be quickly moved into the class.

Preschool and Camp programs are currently the only programs that are not able to be processed through the Online registration options. The Program Guide will note any other exception.
