Course Changes (Add/Drop)

Students can add or drop classes at any time during the open registration period or until the conclusion of the Add/Drop period (as outlined in the Academic Calendar) using the Register/Remove Previously Selected Courses feature or with the assistance of their academic advisor/department.

Students who want to petition to add a closed class, or who want to add a class after the Add/Drop Period has concluded, must complete a “Registration: Add Class Form". This form must be printed and approved by the instructor, department, and/or dean. Students attempting to add a class after the Add/Drop Period has ended must also obtain a “Retroactive Registration Form” from the Bursar. All forms must be brought to the Office of the Registrar for processing immediately after all approvals have been obtained; the forms will not be accepted after the term concludes. It is the responsibility of the student to see that all forms reach the appropriate office.

Students simultaneously adding and dropping a course (e.g., same course, different section) should use e-FORMS and select “Swap Course Registration.” Approvals for this action will be done electronically, and since there is no credit change, Bursar approval is not required.
