Per-Grade Registration Capacity FAQs
  1. What is the per-grade registration capacity system?
  2. Why is registration for grade X closed while registration for grade Y is still open?
  3. Can you make exceptions for advanced students? Why don't you base class cutoffs on academic level instead of grade level?
  4. Can you make exceptions for siblings?
  5. Won't there be a certain number of students that register but don't show up? Can you put me/my child on a waitlist?
  6. What if I just put down a different grade or make a new account with a different grade?

1. What is the per-grade registration capacity system?

This Splash (Spring 2016), we are measuring program capacity by grade (i.e. each grade has its own, independent capacity). This new implementation is a response to our varying class availability per grade, so this will better enable us to utilize class seats while ensuring that attending students can still obtain sufficiently full schedules. This means that we may close registration for certain grades before others, which will be clearly communicated through our website and registration forms. Please note: in order to minimize email correspondence, capacity notifications will not be sent to our mailing lists.

2. Why is registration for grade X closed while registration for grade Y is still open?

The capacity for grade X has already been reached, while the capacity for grade Y has not yet been reached. This means that enough students in grade X have registered to fill all of the classes that are designated for grade X, whereas the number of students in grade Y that have registered does not yet fill all of the classes that are designated for grade Y.

3. Can you make exceptions for advanced students? Why don't you base class cutoffs on academic level instead of grade level?

Running a volunteer program with roughly 2000 students means we are unable to grant case by case exceptions for students that may be at an academic level beyond their grade. This includes students generally outside the grade range of the program and students in grades that have reached capacity for the program.

4. Can you make exceptions for siblings?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of this system, it is possible that some students may be able to registration while their siblings in other grades may be excluded by the grade capacities. With such a large program, we are unable to make case-by-case exceptions for siblings that are unable to registration together.

5. Won't there be a certain number of students that register but don't show up? Can you put me/my child on a waitlist?

Yes, it is correct that some students will register now but will later decide not to attend, so we have taken this into account when calculating the grade capacities (using the attendance statistics from previous programs). Therefore, we are not maintaining a waitlist.

6. What if I just put down a different grade or make a new account with a different grade?

Doing this could jeopardize your ability to participate in this program and in future programs. We check for duplicate accounts with different grades, and we check for student grade/age at check-in. If we determine that you have misrepresented your grade and/or age on the website in order to register, then you will be unable to participate in the event as well as all future Splash events. If you have accidentally incorrectly set your grade or age, please contact us.
