Drop-Add Procedures

  • All returning students who pre-register for the next term or new students who register during orientation may need to make changes in their schedules (add-drop courses) after online registration ends.
  • How do I add-drop after online registration ends?  Fill out an add-drop card (green) available in the Registrar’s Office.  You’ll need permission (a signature) from the instructor to add or drop a course; your advisor should also sign the card.  If you are adding a course, turn in the card to the Registrar’s Office. The last day to add full-term or first-module courses is the first Friday of the term.  The last day to drop full-term courses is the Wednesday after midterm break. For specific dates, check out the Academic Calendar
  • May I enroll in more than 4.75 units? Not prior to the first day of classes.  On or after the first day of classes, students wishing to elect units in excess of 4.75 may do so with the written authorization of both the major advisor and the Registrar. Such approval requires that the student have a minimum grade point average of 3.200 and no incompletes, and shall be made only after evaluating the student's academic progress and the reasonableness of his or her program.  No student may register for more than 5.5 units in either the fall or the spring term. Students seeking an exception to this policy may petition the Academic Performance Committee.  For information, deadlines, and the procedure to request an exception, go to course overload policy

  • After the drop deadline, see late drop or withdrawal from a course.
