Drop/Add Process  

Students must first click the "Enroll Me" button in their WesPortal before they will be permitted to participate in drop/add.

The registration help line (x3222) will be open during the drop/add period, Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Please access the Drop/Add Frequently Asked Questions web page after hours.

NEW for SPRING 2020:

Drop/Add Request Limit to Unranked Requests

  • In addition to the ranked drop/add requests submitted during pre-registration, students will now be able to submit a max of six unranked course requests. (Students can submit multiple sections of one course.)
  • Once a student reaches the limit of six, the "Add to My Courses" button no longer appears for courses in Drop/Add. An outstanding request will need to be canceled to submit an additional request.

Schedule Confirmation Available on the First Day of Drop/Add

  • Students can confirm their schedules during the drop/add period. 
  • Once a schedule is confirmed:
    • no additional requests can be submitted,
    • any pending requests can no longer be approved by the professors, and
    • enrolled courses cannot be dropped.
  • If additional changes are required, a student can un-confirm their schedule.
    • These changes are dynamic.
  • If a student has reached the maximum number of drop/add requests and/or has confirmed their schedule, the student can still:
    • submit tutorial requests
    • cancel requests
    • change crosslisting
    • change grading mode
    • change GenEd designation

Changes for Instructors

  • In course management, students who have confirmed their schedules will be marked as such and can no longer be added to the class list.

Drop/add begins on the first day of classes each semester and is ten class days in length.  During drop/add students may enroll in more than 4.00 full credit courses with the permission of their advisor, who will need to increase their credit limit electronically.   

The ranked drop/add requests which students made during pre-registration will appear in the drop/add system and are used by instructors to admit students to courses.  Students may also make unranked drop/add requests once drop/add opens. During drop/add instructors determine who may be admitted to the course. Advisors must approve individual drops and adds. The drop/add system allows students to submit drop/add requests on-line. Instructors accept drop/add requests electronically and drop students who do not attend the first class meeting. Advisors are able to review and approve drop/adds electronically.  An e-mail notification system informs students, faculty and advisors of daily drop/add activity. 

Please note that electronic Permission of Instructor and Pre-requisite Override requests are NOT needed during drop/add.

Grading mode changes for 'Student Option' non-tutorial courses may be changed up until fourteen days after drop/add ends via WesPortal>Courses>Schedule.

Crosslistings and GenEd Designations must be chosen by the end of drop/add.

When a 2nd/4th Quarter course has multiple general educational area assignments (NSM, SBS, HA), a student must select one general education area assignment during the five working days following the first class meeting by completing and submitting a paper form.
